Enjoy this sneak peek at MEANT TO BE by Lauren Morrill, in stores now! Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question. It's one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she's queen of following rules and being prepared. That's why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that's also why she's chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB ("meant to be"). But this spring break, Julia's rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she's partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love. Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.

Down and Dirty at Thirty Thousand Feet
Have a gr8 trip—and feel FREE todo anything I wouldn’t do :) —P

here are certain things in life that just suck. Pouring a big bowl of Lucky Charms before realizing the milk is expired, the word “moist,falling face-first into the salad bar in front of the entire lacrosse team . . .“Bird strike!”Being on a plane with Jason Lippincott is another one of them.Two rows ahead of me, Jason is holding his hands up in mock prayeras our plane bounces like it’s on a bungee cord. Not that I would haveany idea what bungee jumping feels like, since I would rather competein a spelling bee in my underpants than leap off a crane with only a rope tied around me. At least I’d come away from the spelling bee witha medal. As the plane drops several hundred (thousand?) feet, I white-knucklethe armrest. Jason’s prayers may be a joke, but mine are very, very real.
God, please deposit me safely on the ground in London . . . and in the process,maybe you could find a way to get Jason to shut it? 
I hate to fly. Seriously. HATE. IT. It seems wrong to be hurtling
