Lia Abbie has the easy life—kicking it back with old school video games, hanging out with her best friend Barnabas, and alternating her living schedule between the apartments of her two dads and her mom.

Kiev Jimenez is a theater geek who loves him some Shakespeare and taking care of his pet armadillo. He has one set goal in life: obtaining the role of Horatio for the Hamlet school play.

When a showdown between Lia and Kiev lands them in the principal’s office, they’re forced into volunteer work at the cringe-worthy Piggy Palooza Festival, or risk being suspended. Lia and Kiev aren’t thrilled about the situation, especially when it interferes with Lia’s relaxed life and Kiev’s theater role. But by working together, they may find more than just bacon—possibly a little love in the air.

Lia Abbie has the easy life—kicking it back with old school video games,
hanging out with her best friend Barnabas, and alternating her living schedule
between the apartments of her two dads and her mom.

Kiev Jimenez is a theater geek who loves him some Shakespeare and taking care
of his pet armadillo. He has one set goal in life: obtaining the role of
Horatio for the Hamlet school play.

When a showdown between Lia and Kiev lands them in the principal’s office,
they’re forced into volunteer work at the cringe-worthy Piggy Palooza Festival,
or risk being suspended. Lia and Kiev aren’t thrilled about the situation,
especially when it interferes with Lia’s relaxed life and Kiev’s theater role.
But by working together, they may find more than just bacon—possibly a little
love in the air.

Excerpt:
The door is
already wide open. Mr. Walker is missing in action, but two guys are already
there—Tweedle Jerk and Tweedle Jerkier.
I’m not
dealing with this crap today. I march up to Cole, who is sitting in my seat
again, and watch as Kiev’s eyes seem to follow me all the way until I’m
standing in between both of them.
“You need
to get out of my seat,” I say to Cole. Does he have his usual basketball shirt
on today? He does.
He holds up
both hands like he’s trying to tame a wild boar. “Calm down. Calm down, Miss
Ophelia Abbie. The bell has not announced the start of this oh-so-wonderful
class.”
I give him
a look of disdain. “Enough with the Ophelia stuff.”
“What’s
wrong with the name Ophelia?” Kiev pipes in. “It’s like the name from Hamlet.”
“What?” I
turn to Kiev, not sure what this idiot is talking about.
“You know,
O-phe-li-a.” He draws the name out super slowly to get his point across.
“I don’t
give a crap about Hamlet—that has nothing to do with my name,” I huff.
Tapping his
fingers on the desk like he’s typing on a keyboard, Kiev stares at my face.
“Are you sure your parents didn’t name you after the character?”
“Who the hell
names their kid after a stupid Shakespearian play?” I’ve read two, and I hated
them both.
“Plenty of
people. Juliet Weaver, in our grade, was named after Romeo and Juliet.”
“Quit being
pretentious.”
“Quit being
a—”
I narrow my
eyes at him. “A what?”
“You know
what you’re being.”
“Shut up,
Kiev. Oh, my parents named me after the capital of Russia, because I’m such an
important person who has to answer questions for people when they don’t need
help answering!” I yell.
“Um, Kiev
is actually the capital of Ukraine.” He bobs his head. “You know that, right?”
I hear Cole’s loud hooting to my right.
That’s it!
Without thinking, I slam my fist directly into Kiev’s nose.

Summerlypse: Author Interview + Excerpt

First off, I really liked the style of writing the author used when I read this book. Second off, the teens felt like actual teens.

30392802

Summary:

After his crush rejects him, seventeen-year-old Colton catches a plane to Mexico, hoping to forget all about girls. But a night out at a dance club crowded with long legs in miniskirts doesn’t help, especially when he meets the club’s beautiful DJ, Alex.

In awe of her mixing skills, Colton finds it hard to believe Alex is deaf. As they bond, she asks him to help her win a DJ contest behind her rich, estranged father’s back.

Colton’s not a wimp or anything, but millionaires with armed bodyguards are not his ideal vacation buddies. The only problem—if he helps her, he may fly back home in a body bag.

Excerpt:
 
“Who’s the other girl?” Martin asks.
“Does it matter?”
He puts a hand on my shoulder. “In the matter of beautiful women it matters.”
I roll my eyes. “Chloe,” I say reluctantly, and he’s like, “The…?” and I’m like, “Yup.” And he draws a guitar-shaped girl in the air. “The one with…?” And I point at the imaginary girl. “That’s the one.” He gives me a WTF look. “No way.” And I’m like, “Sí way.”
He does his eyebrow wiggling thing. “I still think you should connect with them, and I mean connect at the metaphysical level without the meta. And—”
“Stop. Can’t you see Miranda broke my heart?”
“Broke your heart? That’s so lame. Sometimes I think you’re the girliest dude friend I’ve ever had.”
“And sometimes I think you’re…you’re…the Mexicanest friend I’ve ever had.”
