Meant to Be
by Lauren Morrill 

Hardcover, 256 pages
Expected publication: November 13th 2012 by Delacorte

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.

One Word: Superawesomecute.
As corny as it may sounds this book just speaks to me. Julia seems as relatable to me as my pillow case feels about my pillow. It's another opportunity to swoon and live vicariously through another person who, although shares my love for work ethics, gets to live a life in a far better way.

London + Nerds + Ominous Bad Boy Nemesis + Romantically Adorable Characters = Slightly Cliche Plot with a Twist of Originality that's going to get me hooked.

I'm going to buy this immediately when it comes out. I have a feeling it's going to be like a Fictionpress story, but a bazillion times better.

Plus, I mean, isn't that cover adorkable!?

And you know, while we're on cute stuff, let's watch Agnes ask for stuff:
