I read it all in one sitting — the book went by so fast that I was finished by lunchtime...Nor did I understand the point of the Boyfriend Bracket. Which wouldn't have been a big deal, if it hadn't been the title of the book. I loved Stella and Will's story. I only wish that it had just been Stella and Will's story!

Synopsis

The only way to get over a hopeless crush is to find someone new...Enter: The Boyfriend Bracket!


Putting a new spin on a classic trope, Kate Evangelista explores family bonds, changing relationships, and senior year as our heroine tries to get over her brother’s best friend.

Stella has had a hopeless crush on Will, her older brother's best friend FOREVER, but now that Cam and Will have graduated and are going off to college, this year is her chance to really strike out on her own. Without her overprotective brother and his sidekick around to distract her, she can focus on having all the typical high school experiences that she's always dreamed of—starting with finding a boyfriend! With the help of her best friend, Franklin, she comes up with the perfect plan to have a boyfriend by Christmas: The Boyfriend Bracket.

Or it seems like the perfect plan . . . right up until Will starts showing up again. How is she supposed to find the perfect boyfriend when none of her dates measure up to the one boy she can never have?

The Boyfriend Bracket puts a new spin on a classic genre in a fun, unforgettable way.
