Upcoming Release: For Keeps / The Unwritten Rule

For Keeps
By: Natasha Friend

Pub date: April 6th, 2010

For sixteen years, Josie Gardner and her mom, Kate, have been a team. It’s been the Gardner Girls against the world, and that’s how Josie likes it. Until one day, in the pet food aisle of Shop-Co, they run into the parents of Paul Tucci, Kate’s high school boyfriend—the father Josie has never met. If Mr. and Mrs. Tucci are back in town, it’s only a matter of time until Paul shows up. Suddenly Josie’s mature, capable mother regresses to the heartbroken teenager she was when Paul moved away.

Meanwhile, Josie’s on the verge of having her first real boyfriend, while her free-loving best friend, Liv, begins yet another no-strings-attached fling. When Josie learns some surprising truths about Paul Tucci, she finds herself questioning what she’s always believed about her parents—and about herself.

In For Keeps, Natasha Friend tells a fresh, funny, smart story about what happens when a girl gets the guy she always wanted and the dad she never knew she needed.

For Keeps sounds like a really great story. I love books that focus on family and family relationships etc. I think this book will be really good. And as usual, I really love the cover. ;)

The Unwritten Rule
By: Elizabeth Scott

Pub date: April 6th, 2010

There is no official summary for this book yet although a little while back, Elizabeth posted a video of herself reading a small excerpt in her goodreads fan group and from what she read, The Unwritten Rule is in short, about a girl who falls in love with her best friend's boyfriend.

I'm so excited for this book, as I am for anything Elizabeth Scott affiliated. It sounds like another one of her sweet and adorable novels which I love.

  4. I like Natasha Friend's other books and For Keeps sounds especially good. And of course, The Unwritten Rule must be amazing since it's by Elizabeth Scott. Both covers are so cute!
