The New Guy (and Other Senior Year Distractions) by Amy Spalding πŸŽ“

3/5 🌟’s


Synopsis from Goodreads:”A ridiculously cute, formerly-famous new guy dropping into your life? It’s practically every girl’s dream.Β 

But not Jules McCallister-Morgan’s.Β 

I realize that on paper I look like your standard type-A, neurotic, overachiever. And maybe I am. But I didn’t get to be the editor of my school’s long-revered newspaper by just showing up*. I have one main goal for my senior year-early acceptance into my first choice Ivy League college-and I will not be deterred by best friends, moms who think I could stand to “live a little,” or boys.Β 

At least, that was the plan before I knew about Alex Powell**.

And before Alex Powell betrayed me***.

I know what you’re thinking: Calm down, Jules. But you don’t understand. This stuff matters. This is my life. And I’m not going down without a fight.Β 


* Okay, I sort of did. But it’s a sore subject.

** I mean, I guess everyone knows about Alex Powell? Two years ago, you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing about viral video boy band sensation Chaos 4 All. Two years ago, Alex Powell was famous.

***Some people think I’m overreacting. But this. Means. War.

Filled with romance, rivalry, and passive-aggressive dog walking, Amy Spalding delivers a hilariously relatable high school story that’s sure to have you falling for The New Guy.”

This book is fun and entertaining ✨ However I was expecting the story to be more about the whole boy band drama with Alex being the “villain” in the storyΒ but it actually wasn’t. It was still fun although I kinda dislike the main character Jules because she can a bit obnoxious but as I read more about her I realize that she’s 17 years old and she’s naΓ―ve and she’s supposed to be that way so I can’t really hold that against her. It’s a fun, light and quirky book that I finished in a day.
