Title: Meant To Be
Author: Lauren Morrill
It’s one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quote another to fall for the – gasp – wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she’s the 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. Julia also believes in fate, and that Mark, her childhood crush, is her MTB – her meant-to-be.
But this spring break, Julia’s rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: 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 live a little along the way. And this 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.
OMG YES! Loved this book so much!!!!!
Ugh this book was so good!!! It kept me guessing and wanting more and more!
I felt the Julia’s feelings so intensely and I really liked how everything turned out. The only thing that bothered me was that the book boyfriend was the kind of guy that teases girls when he likes them which is not for me.
I love a book with characters that have cute nicknames: Julia’s nicknames were Jules and Julie which I loved, and BookLicker but you have to read the book to find out about that.
