Girl Saves Boy
By: Step Bowe
Pub date: August 30th, 2010 (Australia, New Zealand)
The first time we met, Jewel Valentine saved my life...
Isn’t it enough having your very own terminal disease, without your mother dying? Or your father dating your Art teacher?
No wonder Sacha Thomas ends up in the lake that Saturday evening…
But the real question is: how does he end up in love with Jewel Valentine?
With the help of quirky teenage prodigies Little Al and True Grisham, Sacha and Jewel have a crazy adventure, with a little lobster emancipation along the way.
But Sacha’s running out of time, and Jewel has secrets of her own.
Girl Saves Boy is a hugely talented debut novel, funny and sad, silly and wise. It’s a story of life, death, love… and garden gnomes.

I am beyond excited to read this book. It is scheduled for the above release date in Australia and New Zealand followed by a spring 2011 release in North America. Many of you bloggers are already familiar with Steph as she is the face behind the blog Hey! Teenager Of The Year. I've been following her blog since I started my own and am super eager to read her stuff. Did I mention she's only sixteen? Awesome right? I wish her all the best! :D
