With the perfect plan to get the guy, what could possibly go wrong?  

Nora Fulbright is the most talented new cheerleader at Riverbend High. She may have been a friendless overachiever in the past but this year Nora is determined to transform from social larva to full blown butterfly. Even if it means dumbing herself down. But when Adam moves to town and steals Nora’s heart with his ultra-smarts she devises a plan to wow him with her intellect. Every move she makes getting closer to Adam is more complicated and she quickly loses control of her strategy. Can Nora to prove that she’s not a complete airhead while keeping her image in check?

Allyson Valentine’s pitch-perfect humor and delightfully frustrating romance is perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins’s Anna and the French Kiss, Susanne Colosanti and Sarah Dessen.


Praise for How (Not) to Find a Boyfriend:

“This sharp-witted debut pours on the wry comedy as a brainiac girl tries to hide her intelligence so she can be popular.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Valentine offers a book about honoring the truth, following one’s bliss, and being oneself that avoids being saccharine or overly prescriptive.” —Publishers Weekly

“In the same vein as E. Lockhart’s The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, the message of embracing who you are is one that teens need to hear.” —SLJ
