Description

Coworker, childhood friend, and worst enemy: the changing dynamics of friendship (and maybe...relationship?) are front and center in this charming debut novel with equal amounts of wit and heart. Quinn is having a rough summer. Her beloved grandmother has been put into a nursing home, her dad's gambling addiction has flared back up, and now her worst enemy is back in town: Wesley James, former childhood friend and life ruiner. So when Wesley is hired to work with her at Tudor Tymes, a medieval England-themed restaurant, the last thing Quinn's going to do is forgive and forget. She's determined to remove him from her life and even the score for once and for all--by getting him fired. But getting rid of Wesley isn't as easy as she'd hoped. When Quinn finds herself falling for him, she has to decide what she wants more: to get even, or to get the boy. Wesley James Ruined My Life is an engaging romp through rivalry and restaurants from debut author Jennifer Honeybourn and chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads. Praise for Wesley James Ruined My Life "Quinn and Wesley are fun, well-developed protagonists, and there is a full cast of interesting secondary characters, too. The book's even pacing will entice teens from the start and keep them reading...this [is a] pitch-perfect quirky summer romance." --School Library Journal "The writing is excellent, pacing spot-on, and main character's voice is sweet and funny." --Lisa Buscemi Reiss, reader on SwoonReads.com "Immensely readable, utterly charming and absolutely un-put-downable. The duality of Quinn longing to forget Wesley while hurting over being forgotten by her Gran was just beautiful. I got a little weepy. I'm not going to lie." --Jennifer McKenzie "Sweet, well written and utterly relatable." --Inna Hardison, reader on SwoonReads.com "I liked the main character, Quinn--she was interesting, loyal and passionate. I was rooting for her the whole time and had to know how her story turned out. She was why I kept reading!" --GoodGothGirlReads, reader on SwoonReads.comshow more
