Here is my "working" blurb for the current WIP, and so far, I've been calling it A Boy for Every Season--but it just doesn't have that elusive It, if you know what I mean.
Layney Logan doesn't swim in the high school dating pool--period. She'd rather avoid the questionable warm spots in the water and focus on the important things--like getting into college and running the high school newspaper. So when her arch-nemesis and co-chief editor (who also happens to be her ex-boyfriend),Jimmy Foster, suggests she do a feature story about what girls are really looking for in boys she wants to run for the hills. What's worse, he wants her to go on twelve blind dates with the boys the paper is photographing for a fundraiser calendar.
The one thing Layney dislikes more than dating is letting Foster think he got to her, so she takes the assignment to prove she's more than over him. The trouble is, she is learning a little more about herself on every blind date--the good, bad, and ugly (sometimes scary) ones. And the more she learns about Layney Logan, the more she wonders if Foster's known her better all this time.
So--we've got two intrepid high school reporters, twelve blind dates of doom, a calendar of hunks (and some not so hunky), a newspaper staff of chaos, two people who hate each other but probably should never have broken up, and Mr. March--a total hottie skater boy who throws his hat in the ring. And a big secret Layney's been hiding for four years and it's the REAL reason she and her arch nemesis broke up.
So...give me some titles! If I end up using yours, you get to be a character in the book--one of the reporters for The Follower, Layney's high school newspaper. I'll send you a questionaire and make a character dossier of you. Not in high school anymore? That's okay--you'll get a second chance at sixteen and be immortalized in a young adult novel.
Let's hear them.....
