Synopsis from Goodreads:
Trixie will do anything to get her name ranked over Ben’s, including give up sleep and comic books–well, maybe not comic books–but definitely sleep. After all, the war of Watson v. West is as vicious as the Doctor v. Daleks and Browncoats v. Alliance combined, and it goes all the way back to the infamous monkey bars incident in the first grade. Over a decade later, it’s time to declare a champion once and for all.
The war is Trixie’s for the winning, until her best friend starts dating Ben’s best friend and the two are unceremoniously dumped together and told to play nice. Finding common ground is odious and tooth-pullingly-painful, but Trixie and Ben’s cautious truce slowly transforms into a fandom-based tentative friendship. When Trixie’s best friend gets expelled for cheating and Trixie cries foul play, however, they have to choose who to believe and which side they’re on–and they might not pick the same side.
Why I’m excited:
So I love a good love/hate relationship. I just do. Pride & Prejudice? Yes, please! 10 Things I Hate About You? You betcha ya. This is the second week in a row I’ve featured lighter fare. It must be what I’m craving lately. This sounds adorable, but I have to admit that I’m not loving the cover. I like the comic book look, but this is The Unbreak My Heart PB cover. I hate that. Like you guys can’t afford a new picture? Regardless, I’ll be keeping my eyes open for this one.
