The Perfect Guy by Ann Herrick



Can Rebecca turn her new stepbrother into her new love?

When Rebecca’s mother marries Pres’s father, Rebecca is sure that living in the same house with the guy of her dreams will have its perks and it will be just a matter of time before Pres sees her as more than a kid sister. Even though her best friend, Celeste, warns her to face reality, Rebecca doesn’t listen. She thinks Pres is the perfect guy for her. But Celeste’s brother, Josh, has been friends with Pres for years, and Celeste thinks she knows what she’s talking about.  

Rebecca’s not so sure about her relationship with her new stepfather. She knows he can’t replace her real dad, but she thinks she can break through his cool surface by helping him with the school play.

But things don’t go as planned, and as friendships start to change, Rebecca faces surprising truths about herself and her friends. Will she find happiness in her new family and find The Perfect Guy?

  1. So many young people are in this situation these days, that this story should resonate. If Ann Herrick's other YA's are anything to go by, this will most certainly be a warm-hearted and wise book.
