7 Clues to Winning You by Kristin Walker

7 Clues to Winning You by Kristin Walker
"When a humiliating picture of Blythe goes viral, she's instantly the target of ridicule at her new school. To salvage her reputation, Blythe teams up with Luke to win the Senior Scramble scavenger hunt. But Luke is an unlikely ally and potentially can't be trusted.

Perhaps it's his Shakespearean witticisms that reel Blythe in despite her better judgment . . . or maybe she just craves the thrill of the game. But as the hunt progresses, their relationship heats up. Soon their madcap mischief spirals out of control. Blythe is faced with arrest and expulsion, among other catastrophes - until Luke shows her what the Scramble (and love) is really about."- summary from Amazon

I adored Walker's debut and have been eagerly anticipating a new book from her and this was not a disappointment. The voice and humor just kept the pages turning, especially when it came to interactions between Blythe and Luke. Their interactions were just so much fun!! Gah, I just loved this book!

It's really hard to write more than that, lol. I just cannot put into words how great Walker's writing is. There's just so much humor, depth, and reality to what she writes. She's an author to keep an eye on, especially amidst all the paranormals. This is a nice, funny contemporary that's perfect for the upcoming summer!

Overall, a fantastic book and I urge you all to get this as well as her debut, A Match Made in High School, immediately. You won't be disappointed (unless you're expecting angels or werewolves to pop up because then you will be).

  1. Great review! I also have trouble explaining just how good the writing is when I was just want to say "omg this writing feels so great". I had this on my TBR list already but glad to be reminded it comes out this week! Looks like the kind of read I'm in the mood for.
