The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes
Publication Date: May 20th 2014
Soccer star Lainey Mitchell is used to getting what she wants, and when her boyfriend Jason breaks up with her for no reason, what she wants is to win him back before the start of their senior year. Lainey and her friend Bianca check the interwebz for tips and tricks, but the online dating advice is all pretty lame.
Then the girls stumble across a copy of The Art of War. Didn't someone once say that love is a battlefield? Jason isn't going to stand a chance once Lainey and Bee go all Zhou Dynasty on him…
Old school strategy and subterfuge meet modern-day dramarama in the story of a girl who sets out to win at all costs and ends up discovering what's really worth fighting for.
Why I Can't Wait: Well first of all, I'm a huge fan of Paula Stokes aka Fiona Paul. She is one of the sweetest and awesomest authors I've had the privilege to talk to. Of course I also absolutely adore her Historical Fiction series, Secrets of the Eternal Rose (FALCO!), and I've been so excited to see what she could write next and this contemp sounds so cute and fun! The cover is adorable too. 🙂
