MEANT TO BEMeant 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.
Sounds fun, right?! If you haven't pre-ordered your copy, get it now! MEANT TO BE drops on November 13!
Now let's get to know a little more about the author, Lauren Morrill, who seems super fun
Q- In Meant to Be, Julia’s best friend Pheobe is a total contrast to her. Was your high school (or current) best friend just like you or a contrast like Pheobe?
Lauren's Answer: "A little yes, and a little no. My bestie Sarah was a lot more organized and put together than I was. She was a little more quiet, while I was loud (and a little obnoxious!). She was a much better student. But we bonded over our love for Lilith Fair-era singer songwriters, books, and long philosophical conversations."
Thanks to Lauren Morrill and Paper Lantern Lit for putting this tour together, and letting me be a part of it! :)
