I've been a fan of Elizabeth Eulberg since I fell in love with her hilarious debut novel the Lonely Hearts Club. Elizabeth's books are ripe with cute boys, strong and smart girls, wit, and also cute boys. Did I say that already? Doesn't matter. There are lots. It's worth a second mention. Elizabeth's novels are especially relatable. Her protagonists are unique and interesting young women, but they all possess that innate quality of being an Everywoman. That's why I'm really excited to share with you the cover of her newest novel, Better Off Friends. Ready?
Better Off Friends
by Elizabeth Eulberg
Coming February 25, 2014
A Scholastic imprint
For Macallan and Levi, it was friends at first sight. Everyone says guys and girls can’t be just friends, but these two are. They hang out after school, share tons of inside jokes, their families are super close, and Levi even starts dating one of Macallan’s friends. They are platonic and happy that way.
Eventually they realize they’re best friends — which wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t keep getting in each other’s way. Guys won’t ask Macallan out because they think she’s with Levi, and Levi spends too much time joking around with Macallan, and maybe not enough time with his date. They can’t help but wonder . . . are they more than friends or are they better off without making it even more complicated?
From romantic comedy superstar Elizabeth Eulberg comes a fresh, fun examination of a question for the ages: Can guys and girls ever really be just friends? Or are they always one fight away from not speaking again — and one kiss away from true love?
Ooooh, ahhhh! Look at the shiny! I like that the cover isn't giving anything away. An overly handsy cover would probably encourage us to think that Macallan and Levi eventually get together. This cover is sweet and fun, but I think there's some tension here as well. I'm really looking forward to this novel. I'll read everything Elizabeth ever publishes. If you haven't picked up her other novels, please know that they come highly recommended by me.
Better Off Friends IS available for preorder on Amazon already, and you can add it to your Goodreads shelves here.
