Synopsis

The New Guy (and Other Senior Year Distractions) by Amy Spalding

Neurotic over-achiever Jules McCallister-Morgan has her senior year all planned out: become the editor of her prestigious LA private school's revered and long-standing newspaper, and get into Brown. But on only her second day, a wrench is thrown into her plan for perfection--new guy at school, Alex Powell. Alex is smart and funny...and only two years ago had the number one song in the country with his viral video sensation boy band, Chaos 4 All. After getting over the initial shock that someone like Alex could possibly like like her, Jules accepts that having a boyfriend could be a nice addition to her senior year. That is until Alex commits the ultimate betrayal by joining Talon, the school's brand-new TV news show that's scooping all of the paper's leads. It's a war between old and new media, and Jules isn't going down without a fight. But what's really more important--college applications, or happiness and love? Filled with tons of romantic tension, shocking reveals, and a less-than-friendly, but more-than-hilarious prank war, Amy Spalding's sophomore title on the Poppy list will leave you falling for The New Guy.

Reviews

This is easily one of the funniest YA novels you'll read all year - maybe ever.
