Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she’s not popular, but not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet, “good” girl who’s always done what she’s supposed to—only now in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change, but doesn’t know how.

Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s. Star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, on a fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change, but doesn’t know how.

One fateful night their paths cross when Wren, working at her family’s Arthurian-themed catering hall, performs the Heimlich on Gray as he chokes on a cocktail weenie, saving his life literally and figuratively. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love. Goodreads

Can we just take a few moments to really appreciate that cover? I mean, it is absolutely STUNNING and probably one of my favorites ever. So that obviously caught my attention, but the synopsis makes this sound like a contemporary that would definitely work for me. Love it! A debut I’m definitely looking forward to!

      I have a copy of this so I'm definitely going to have to read this when I'm in a contemporary mood some time in the near future. The cover is adorable!
