Description

A spunky, contemporary novel about friendship, failure, and what happens when things don't go according to plan, ideal for readers who like their heroines smart and strong--but not perfect. Danielle's plans for the future were all figured out... until she failed senior English and her single college acceptance was rescinded. Determined to get her life back on track, Danielle enrolls in her hometown community college with a plan: pass English and get back into Ohio State--and her mother's good graces. Romance isn't on her radar... until she reconnects with her childhood crush and golden boy next door, Luke. Between family drama, first love and finding her own way, Danielle can't help but feel a little overwhelmed. Thankfully she has her friendship with the snarky and frustratingly attractive Porter, her coworker at the campus bookstore, to push her to experience new things and help keep her afloat. One thing's for sure: This time, failure's not an option. Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, The Big F is a smart, funny, and highly relatable novel by debut author Maggie Ann Martin about finding your own way after one epic fail. Praise for The Big F "Martin's first book is nothing short of amazing! You'll laugh, cry and scream with every page as you follow Danielle and her realistic yet zany post-high-school antics. . . . The Big F deserves an A-plus for being the quirkiest, most fun-loving read of 2017 so far!" --RT Book Reviews "A debut novel sure to resonate with high schoolers who eagerly anticipate graduation and the start of college. . . . Danielle is a savvy, likable character with whom teens will easily identify. . . . Romance fans will enjoy this fast-paced story that features an interesting set of characters and satisfying conclusion." --School Library Journal "Danielle is a likeable character who tries to do the right thing. Readers will have confidence in her even when she sometimes lacks self-assurance. . . . An easy, enjoyable read." --VOYA "'When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.' I'm pretty sure that that quote epitomizes The Big F. . . . Fun, cute, and totally relatable." --Book Allureshow more
