Today’s Teaser Tuesday: The New Guy by Amy Spalding

The New Guy by Amy SpaldingTitle: The New Guy (And Other Senior Year Distractions)
Author: Amy Spalding
Publisher: Poppy
Publication Date: April 5, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

A ridiculously cute, formerly famous, new guy dropping into your life? It’s practically every girl’s dream.

But not Jules McCallister-Morgan’s.

I realize that on paper I look like your standard type-A, neurotic, overachiever. And maybe I am. But I didn’t get to be the editor of my school’s long-revered newspaper by just showing up*. I have one main goal for my senior year — early acceptance into my first choice Ivy League college — and I will not be deterred by best friends, moms who think I could stand to “live a little,” or boys. 

At least, that was the plan before I knew about Alex Powell**.

And before Alex Powell betrayed me***.

I know what you’re thinking: Calm down, Jules. But you don’t understand. This stuff matters. This is my life. And I’m not going down without a fight.

* Okay, I sort of did. But it’s a sore subject.

** I mean, I guess everyone knows about Alex Powell? Two years ago, you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing about viral video boy band sensation Chaos 4 All. Two years ago, Alex Powell was famous.

*** Some people think I’m overreacting. But this. Means. War.

Filled with tons of romance, rivalry, and passive-aggressive dog walking, Amy Spalding delivers a hilariously relatable high school story that’s sure to have you falling for The New Guy.

Amazon “Book Depository

I am really loving this book so far! The fact that there is an ex-boy band character really intrigues me. I am not too far into the book, but I am sure that this one is going to be hilarious.

Book Quotes: The New Guy by Amy Spalding

“I thought it would feel exciting and powerful, but it just feels like writing things down on the whiteboard. I feel like myself.”

      This book was such a fun and light read for me. I really needed something fluffy to read in between all of the heavy themed books I have read lately. <3

    I just finished this one, and it was too stinking cute! I really liked it. Can’t wait to see what you think of it when you are finished! Don’t be too hard on a certain character 🙂
