Description

You've Got Mail meets Morgan Matson in this smart, banter-filled romcom with a bookish twist.

Nothing will stop Madeline Moore from taking over her family's independent bookstore after college. Nothing, that is-until a chain bookstore called Prologue opens across the street and threatens to shut them down.

Madeline sets out to demolish the competition, but the guy who works over at Prologue seems intent on ruining her life. Not only is he taking her customers, he has the unbelievable audacity to be... extremely cute.

But that doesn't matter. Jasper is the enemy and he will be destroyed. After all-all's fair in love and (book) war.

Review quote

"Packed with smart humor and sparkling prose, Last Chance Books strikes both the funny bone and the heartstrings. You'll root for Madeline as old and new relationships thwart her fight to save her family's bookstore. A delightful read." - Laura Taylor Namey, New York Times bestselling author of A Cuban Girl's Guide to Tea and Tomorrow

"A charming, hilarious debut that pays tribute to You've Got Mail while feeling uniquely modern. Kelsey Rodkey's banter is what romcom dreams are made of, and Madeline and Jasper are so perfectly matched that I nearly perished while waiting for them to kiss. (And oh, they do.) An instant favorite." - Rachel Lynn Solomon, New York Times bestselling author of See You Yesterday

"Madeline is quick-witted, bright, and passionate... a lighthearted page-turner." - School Library Journal

"This enemies-to-lovers romance includes a business rivalry, a deadbeat mom, and a last-gasp attempt to save a family store... A solid rom-com." - Kirkus Reviews

"The You've Got Mail-style romance is well-executed in this debut." - Publishers Weekly

"Rooted as much in family as it is in cute banter, book nerdery, and sexual tension... You've Got Mail for teens." - Booklist
