Young Adult Romances

Here are some fun YA books I’ve read. Kelly Oram writes great YA that always make me laugh out loud. She has a sharp, cutting wit about her, and it reveals itself in her character dialogue. These two books feature romance in a science squad of all places. Hee hee. Read on, and leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway at the end.

The Avery Shaw Experiment

averyAvery Shaw is a science geek who is secretly in love with her best friend, Aiden. But when Aiden wants to put some distance between them and gets a girlfriend, she is crushed. Grayson, Aiden’s older brother, and the most popular senior at Spanish Fork High (hey! This is right close to me!), rushes to the rescue to keep Avery from falling apart. They strike up an Experiment to do for the science fair that Aiden’s left her high and dry without a partner for now, to see if her broken heart can be cured by going through the seven stages of grief. Grayson will act as the unbiased observer.

This cute, witty, heart-tugging romance made me laugh constantly. Avery is a cool, smart character. Grayson is the fantastic, handsome jock. He’s hilarious, but caring. Seeing Avery grow and develop confidence to stand on her own is thrilling. Continue reading

Andy Walker, her cute but socially reclusive art class table mate, is her last resort. He may not be popular, but he’s funny, talented, and full of surprises. With a makeover and some major social marketing, Ivy is sure he could fetch a decent price at the auction. Continue reading
