YA Authors B.T. Gottfred and Gretchen McNeil

YA authors B.T. Gottfred and Gretchen McNeil will visit the store to discuss their new novels.

Gottfred will discuss THE NERDY AND THE DIRTY. In the book, Benedict Pendleton is considered a nerd, but he knows he's destined for great things. All he has to do is find a worthy girlfriend, and his social station will be secured. Pen Lupo is sick and tired of hiding who she is. On the outside, Pen is popular, quiet, and deferential to her boyfriend. On the inside, however, Pen is honest, opinionated--and not sure that she's quite like other girls. When fate intervenes, Pen and Benedict end up at the same vacation resort for winter break. Despite their differences, the two are drawn together. But is there such a thing as happily ever after for this unlikely pair?

McNeil will discuss I’M NOT YOUR MANIC PIXIE DREAM GIRL. In the book, Beatrice Maria Estrella Giovannini has life all figured out. She's starting senior year at the top of her class, and she’s got a new boyfriend she’s crazy about. The only problem: All through high school Bea and her best friends Spencer and Gabe have been the targets of horrific bullying. So Bea uses her math skills to come up with The Formula, a 100% mathematically guaranteed path to social happiness in high school. But when her boyfriend Jesse dumps her for Toile, the quirky new girl at school, Bea realizes it's time to use The Formula for herself. She'll be reinvented as the eccentric and lovable Trixie—a quintessential manic pixie dream girl—in order to win Jesse back and beat new-girl Toile at her own game.Unfortunately, being a manic pixie dream girl isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Recommended for ages 14 and up.
