In this delightfully charming teen spin on You’ve Got Mail, the one guy Bailey Rydell can’t stand is actually the boy of her dreams—she just doesn’t know it yet.

Classic movie buff Bailey “Mink” Rydell has spent months crushing on a witty film geek she only knows online by “Alex.” Two coasts separate the teens until Bailey moves in with her dad, who lives in the same California surfing town as her online crush.

Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep in real life—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist-trap museum. Or that she’s being heckled daily by the irritatingly hot museum security guard, Porter Roth—a.k.a. her new arch-nemesis. But life is whole lot messier than the movies, especially when Bailey discovers that tricky fine line between hate, love, and whatever-it-is she’s starting to feel for Porter.

And as the summer months go by, Bailey must choose whether to cling to a dreamy online fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex…Approximately. (Goodreads)

  3. Eeeee. Is it bad that I'm not familiar with You've Got Mail? Should I be? I'll look it up after finishing this comment. I've seen a lot of excitement about this book! I'm not a YA contemporary person, but I've enjoy more contemporary novels recently than in the past. I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it, Christy!

    Have a wonderful week. =)

    Check out my WoW post!

  4. OK so i don't know that I'll read this but I really like the cover and the idea that it's based on You've Got Mail / She Loves Me (the musical). Ok actually I may read this...haha! I'm being so annoying and commenting on everything of yours.


Thanks for stopping by! :)
