Is winning really everything? High school senior Nell Becker certainly thinks so, especially if it means beating the richest, most infuriating, popular guy in school - Jackson Hart.

When Jackson inexplicably starts flirting with her, Nell is sucked into a whirlwind romance with the guy she least expects, and the things that used to matter - like perfect scores and volleyball - fall by the wayside. Nell is letting go for the first time ever, and it feels good.

Except Jackson is hiding an explosive secret, one that may prove their relationship was a game all along.

This YA contemporary will keep readers glued to the page with Laurie Devore's signature blend of compulsive writing, edgy romance, and tough-as-nails characters.

Review quote

"Intense and fiercely smart, this volatile love story is both timely and classic." --Maurene Goo, author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love

"A bold, incisive, timely examination of the high price girls often have to pay for daring to want it all...Clever, romantic, and absolutely unputdownable." --Courtney Summers, author of Cracked up to Be and All the Rage Darker and weightier than many stories about rivals falling in love, Devore's second novel draws a blurry line between honest emotions and calculated moves...a hard-hitting message about the pressures placed on teens to succeed." -- Publishers Weekly "Heartbreakingly unrelenting, incisive look at one young woman's highly pressurized world." --Kirkus Reviews "A clever plot twist reveals just how quick we are to judge the behavior of girls more harshly than that of boys...A winning choice." --School Library Journal

How to Break a Boy:

"Complicated girls, beautiful writing, and drama that will keep you turning the pages until the very end." --Kody Keplinger, New York Times-bestselling author of The DUFF and Run "Olivia's interior world is full of layers and emotional complexity, and readers will root for her to find her way." --Publishers Weekly "A razor-sharp look at grief, betrayal, and redemption. Readers won't be able to resist Olivia." --Kara Thomas, author of The Darkest Corners
