Two exes. One election. All the drama.

For fans of Becky Albertalli and Morgan Matson comes a funny, hearfelt novel about fueding exes running for class president and the scandal that makes the previously boring school election the newest trending hashtag.

At Acedia High School outside of Boston, student council has always been nothing more than a popularity contest. Nobody pays attention. Nobody cares.

But all that changes when the Frankengirls show up. During the very first week of school, someone plasters the halls with Photoshopped images of three "perfect tens"--images of scantily clad girls made from real photos of girls at school. The student body is livid. And the two presidential candidates, Angeline Quinn and Leo Torres, jump on the opportunity to propose their solutions and secure votes. After their messy break up, Leo and Angie are fighting tooth and nail to win this thing and their constituents are mesmerized as they duke it out.

As if things couldn't be more dramatic, the school's two newspapers get involved. The Red & Blue is run by Angie's sister Cat and she prides herself on only reporting the facts. But her morals are tested when The Shrieking Violet--written by an anonymous source and based less on facts and more on fiction--blatantly endorses Leo. Rumors fly, secrets are leaked, and the previously mundane student election becomes anything but boring.

  1. That sounds like it would be an enjoyable read. New author to me too.

    1. Same! I can't wait to see if the book is as good as its synopsis! :)

  2. I'm not crazy about the cover, but the premise makes me want to read this.

    1. Yeah, the cover does absolutely nothing for me, but the synopsis is intriguing. :)

  3. I've seen this one around and I think I'm going to request it form the library.

  4. Based on the premise of the story I am sure I would like this. I'm not sure the cover will attract your YA readers,but I can see them loving the story. Best wishes on the book.

    1. I was curious about that too. I don't think the cover alone will sell the book, and we all know that's what initially catches our attention at stores. Books like this get picked up based on Word of Mouth, so I really hope they make some changes before it's published.
