Book Description:
In this contemporary YA, a teenager’s favorite literary heroes woo her in real life


The first of two books in an intended paperback original series about a girl whose classic literary crushes manifest in real life. Merrilee Campbell, 16, thinks boys are better in books, chivalry is dead, and there’d be nothing more romantic than having just one guy woo her like the heroes in classic stories. She’s about to get the chance to test these daydreams when she, her best friend, Eliza, and her younger sister, Rory, transfer into Reginald R. Hero High, where all their fantasies come true—often with surprising consequences. 












If ever I've related more to a character in a YA novel, that character  would have to be Merrilee. Never have I laughed and smiled my way through a story so much, simply because I got it. I could feel it because in some ways, I've lived it, maybe not as an adult but definitely as a teenager. 

Merrilee is my book character soul mate. She understands it, romance, books, boys, and all. 

It's been a long time since I wanted to stay up into the wee hours of the morning reading a YA book but this book changed all that. It captivated me and lured me in like a roaring fire and a hot cup of cocoa on a dark and stormy night. 

Truly a fun and entertaining read suited for all ages and one I highly recommend.

  6. It's wonderful when you're able to connect/relate to a character! It's like a piece of you has been found in literature. I felt that way when I read Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett.

  8. That is a fun and unique premise! And who hasn't, at some point, wanted to woo or be wooed (I love that term by the way- wooed) by literary characters?? :)

  11. I loved that you stayed up late reading a YA book. You are the one that got me reading YA-Kasie West. I don't read classic literature-not since college but this does sound so fun! Adding it to my wish list.
