Love and Other Theories by Alexis Bass


Love and Other Theories by Alexis Bass

Love and Other Theories is a fast-paced twist on the coming-of-age novel and the romantic comedy that Kirkus Reviews called careful, subtle, and aching in a starred review. Aubrey and her best friends made a pact to play by the guys' rules when it comes to dating. They're hoping the rules will keep them from experiencing high school heartbreak-they don't realize that these rules could just as easily keep them from opening their hearts and minds. And when new boy Nathan Diggs moves to town, Aubrey starts to think that some rules are meant to be broken. With equal parts bite and romance, topped off with an irresistibly engaging voice, Alexis Bass's novel is one you won't want to miss.


Warning: Bass's debut novel will ignite ALL your feelings! -- -Wendy Higgins, New York Times bestselling author of the Sweet Evil trilogy I loved LOVE AND OTHER THEORIES. Alexis Bass writes a compelling critique of the ways society expects girls to behave in their relationships, the lies girls tell each other--and themselves--to keep from getting hurt, and, when all is said and done, how only the heart knows the truth. -- - Kristin Halbrook, author of Nobody But Us and co-founder of YA Highway Alexis Bass masterfully captures all the complexities of high school relationships. A lovely debut. -- - Amanda Maciel, author of Tease A bold debut that authentically captures the frenzy of love, lust, and senior year of high school! -- Julie Murphy, author of Side Effects May Vary Careful, subtle and aching.
