I’m not sure if you guys heard, but one of my favorite books this year FINALLY released!
SOLVING FOR EX is a Young Adult romance – and OMG is it fantastic. It’s a contemporary retelling of the Jane Austen classic – Mansfield Park, but really? You don’t have to be a fan of Jane Austen or have read her books to fall in love with this one! It’s the story of Ashley Price, who wants nothing more than to start a new life after being bullied, wants to join the Mathlete’s team, and is falling in love with her best friend Brendan.
This book you guys! It seriously gave me all the feels. It’s funny, romantic, and smart. And let me tell you, I’m not a math fan to say the least, but the math in it was completely understandable and really just added depth to the story!
So, if you’re looking for a smart, funny YA about real people, this is totally your book! I HIGHLY recommend it! Actually, I think I’m going to go have to re-read it right now
1 crush on your best friend +
1 gorgeous, scheming new girl +
1 Mathletics competition =
1 big mess
Ashley Price doesn’t have much in life after being bullied so hard she had to leave her old school to live with her aunt and uncle in Pittsburgh. But the camera she borrowed from her best friend and secret crush Brendan, and her off the charts math abilities, make things a lot more bearable. Plus, since Brendan is the captain, making the school Mathletes team should be easy.
But when gorgeous new girl Sofia rolls in and steals Brendan, Ashley’s place on the team, and her fragile foothold on the Mansfield Park Prep social totem pole, it’s on. Sofia is everything Ashley left her old school to escape. The only thing Ashley didn’t count on is Sofia’s sexy twin brother Vincent.
Vincent is not only the hottest boy in school, he’s charming, sweet, and he’s got his eye on Ashley. He’s also not taking no for an answer. There’s no real reason Ashley shouldn’t like Vincent, but with the
battle lines being drawn between her and Sofia, Ashley’s not sure which side he’s on. Or which side she wants him to be on.
She does know Sofia is trouble with a capital T, and she’s determined to make Brendan see it.
SOLVING FOR EX is a YA contemporary romance that remixes Mansfield Park as Clueless meets Mean Girls in a crazy mix of high school society, mathletic competition, and teenage romance.
