Feature Friday is a weekly post in which I highlight an upcoming release that I’m particularly looking forward to.
This week, my selection is…
Expected publication: April 4th 2017
by Simon Pulse
Summary per Goodreads…
In this delightfully charming teen spin on You’ve Got Mail, the one guy Bailey Rydell can’t stand is actually the boy of her dreams—she just doesn’t know it yet.
Classic movie buff Bailey “Mink” Rydell has spent months crushing on a witty film geek she only knows online by “Alex.” Two coasts separate the teens until Bailey moves in with her dad, who lives in the same California surfing town as her online crush.
Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep in real life—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist-trap museum. Or that she’s being heckled daily by the irritatingly hot museum security guard, Porter Roth—a.k.a. her new arch-nemesis. But life is a whole lot messier than the movies, especially when Bailey discovers that tricky fine line between hate, love, and whatever-it-is she’s starting to feel for Porter.
And as the summer months go by, Bailey must choose whether to cling to a dreamy online fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex…Approximately.
Okay, so technically I shouldn’t have picked this title because it has already released. But it *just* released so I picked it because I’m a sucker for hate-to-love type stories if they’re done right. I also like pen-pal type stories. And since this is both, I’m going to give it a go. So keep an eye out for my review because It’ll land here eventually. You know, when I make a dent in my never-ending TBR pile. Have you read Alex, Approximately? If so, what was your take?
So that’s my choice this week. What’s yours?
