This book was super cute. If you like Stephanie Perkins' novels, you'll love this one :) ( )

A fun, light-hearted romance for older teens looking for an easy read. ( )

First novel by Lauren Morrill is a young adult romance. High school junior Julia is on a field trip from Newton High to London with schoolmates. She is champion swimmer, can be mistaken for a model, loves Shakespeare and Jane Austen, but has some difficulty relating and lives in a suspended fantasy of her MTB - Meant To Be lover. She is buddied up with Jason who calls her Book Licker and they have some adventures on their 10 days in London. There are hints of Pride and Prejudice and Midsummer's Night Dream. A cute romantic comedy begging to be made into a movie. ( )

Book description
Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question.

It's one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she's queen of following rules and being prepared. That's why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that's also why she's chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB ("meant to be").

But this spring break, Julia's rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she's partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love.

Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.
