Kind of a Big Deal by Shannon Hale
Roaring Book Press and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published August 25th.
What sucked me into reading this was the fact that as she read books using the glasses she got in the bookstore, she stepped into that story. The characters became her friends she had in real life and she had many adventures.
The boy she loves is in her stories. So is another boy she has her eye on. She gets in death defying situations where she and whichever boy is in that story fight as a team and win. She learns something about her best friend from high school. She doesn't want to be friends anymore, she wants to move on. She's not sure which boy she wants more.
And then she learns something about the new boy that scares her. She's developing powers she never had before. When she thinks she's figured it out, she braces him. He tells her it's true. She's not interested in being what he wants her to be so she plans to get away. He tells her she can't.
Will she break the spell and go back to being human? Is there any hope she and her old boyfriend will get back together again?
Read it and see.
