This book blast and giveaway is brought to you by I Am A Reader, Not AWriter. Keep an eye out for the blog tour and my review on 16 January.
Lexi Middleton has been socially invisible to her classmates, but starting her junior year, that’s going to change. First, she’s determined to hook a boyfriend, ensuring dates with flowers and possible kisses on the doorstep. Second, she wants to be a writer for the school paper, even though it freaks her out to think of everyone judging her by her punctuation and metaphors.
High school is difficult enough - keeping up her grades, dealing with increasing sibling rivalry, and trying to stay out of the way of her personal nemesis, Amberlee - but when Lexi catches the eye of her long-time crush, she also becomes the focus of mean-girl tactics.
Caught between who she was and who she wants to be, Lexi must decide how to confront a bully, and choose who to let into her heart.
Praise for the Book
"Love the cover of the novel. Love the plot. Just loved this story a lot. I found it endearing and relatable. Lexi is a likable character and I liked the sibling rivalry aspect of this story." ~ Chubby Bookworm
"This book was a cute, sweet tale of learning to be true to who you are and comfortable in your own skin. Lexi was a fun narrator, the kind of girl I would've been friends with in high school--quirky, a little shy, and kind. [...] A fun story by a debut author. Can't wait to read her other books!" ~ Amazon Customer
"This is my first read by Jo Noelle and it's a good one. [...] The romance is likabley sweet as are the characters.It's fun to watch all their growth and see how the sibling rivalry plays out. The YA set and some adults will enjoy this read." ~ K. Swinton
"Super fun read! Fun characters and good humor!" ~ Amazon Customer
"It's way more than just a simple love story. I found myself captivated and not wanting the story to end when what seemed like it could have wrapped up nicely after the girl got the boy; but satisfyingly it continued. Great coming of age story." ~ Diane Morgan
"The teens will love this book." ~ Kathryn Henderson
