BOOKISH BOYFRIENDS: THE NEXT BOY STORY, BOOK #2, by Tiffany Schmidt, Amulet Books, Abrams, Hachette Book Group


The second book in a series where your favorite literary characters come to life, inspired by the timeless classic, Little Women!

There’s no one better than the boy next door. At least not according to Aurora Campbell, fourteen, who has been in love with Tobias May since their very first sandbox kiss. The problem is, he’s in love with her older sister, Merrilee. And Merri is already dating one of his best friends.

Rory is learning all about pining as her class reads The Great Gatsby, a book she doesn’t find “great” at all. Also not great—her GPA, something she needs to fix, quickly, if she’d like to apply for the chance to spend a week studying art with her hero in New York City over winter break. But when Ms. Gregoire assigns her to read Little Women for extra credit, Rory discovers more than she expected—both about herself and Toby. Maybe she wasn’t in love with the boy next door. . . but the boy next story.

Love is complicated, and it’s all about to get even trickier for Rory at Reginald R. Hero Prep . . . where with the help of one quirky English teacher, students’ fantasies come true, often with surprising consequences

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

So here we are with the second book of this quirky and fun series. This book gleams similarities from Little Women, one of my favorite reads.

The pacing moved consistently along, the plotting was a riot to follow, and the characters were perfectly fleshed out, completely flawed and believable and just a joy to read about.

Tiffany Schmidt takes her time setting up the story with well-laid plotting, creative settings and lots of fun and humor to carry you along.

I absolutely love this series and can’t wait to see what’s next!

I gave it 5-Star-Logo-2
