Welcome back to the YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes, presented by the Apocalypsies! Over the course of the race, you’ll be introduced to over 50 debut YA and MG authors and their fabulous books. Are you up to the challenge?
If you’re just landing here and wouldn’t like to participate, head on back to the starting line over at the Apocalypsies page and read the rules. If you’re stopping by for a glass of Gatorade on your way through the race, then read on and good luck! Here’s the vital info you’ll need as you play on:
Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question.
It’s one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she’s queen of following rules and being prepared. That’s why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that’s also why she’s chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB (“meant to be”).
But this spring break, Julia’s rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she’s partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love.
Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.
Did you get that? Make special note of Meant to Be‘s setting as you continue on in your journey. You’ll need it!
