Elizabeth Eulberg's new book.

BETTER OFF FRIENDS.
I'm sharing my ARC (Advance Reading Copy)!




The book will be out in February, so you certainly can pre-order it or tell your bookstore you are waiting.
But I haven't given away a book lately, so let's do this.
(If you don't mind a few notes scribbled on the pages. Sorry about this.)

What I love about BETTER OFF FRIENDS.
1. It's a romance for Girls and Boys! Young teens, pre-teens. There's not much to keep even middle-graders away, though the topic is boyfriend/girlfriend stuff. In the best way.
There's football, done perfectly. And cooking that's not girlie-girl. Such an appealing story for all.

2. The BOOK DESIGN. I adore the way the two characters each have their own different typeset. Font. Whatever those clever book people call it.
I love the cover. Yes, this one will appeal to a huge range of readers. Like Sarah Dessen's wildly popular novels, the cover doesn't give away the faces. Great concept- let readers sharpen those imaginations!

3. The twists and turns. In real life, and real love, there's no easy answer. My favorite theme of this novel? Boys and girls can be friends. And that can be a perfect start to true romance.

The pre-teen me would have been all over this story.
I predict the book will be snapped up by fans of Elizabeth's other novels and new readers who love and share this one.

Just leave me a comment, on this blog or on Facebook. And I'll pick a name in three days!
(January 13th, to be exact)

I love how the book is for girls and boys. It sounds amazing. Please put my name in. Just yesterday, I had a seventh grade boy come in claiming his teacher told him he had to read a romance. I tried to find one with a cover that wouldn't embarrass him and was unsuccessful! He ended up with something else entirely. Happy Friday!

Aaah, I'm so excited for this book, and you just made me even more so. Call me a font nerd, but I love it when an alternating POV book uses different fonts for different characters. And "twists and turns?" This does not sounds like your average predictable romance.

I hope I win this copy so I can read not only the book, but your scribbled notes - seeing someone else's thoughts always makes reading more fun.

I'm truly looking forward to reading this novel! Especially since Elizabeth Eulberg wrote it

The novel's theme of guys and girls being and can be just friends is definitely something someone like me who's close friends with guys but everyone else doubts that we're just friends when we're really just friends. The desire to read this novel is more like a need.
