Summary:

Salvador Resendez--Salva to his friends--appears to have it all. His Mexican immigrant family has high expectations, and Salva intends to fulfill them. He's student body president, quarterback of the football team, and has a near-perfect GPA. Everyone loves him.
Especially Beth Courant, AKA the walking disaster area. Dreamy and shy, Beth is used to blending into the background. But she's also smart, and she has serious plans for her future.
Popular guy and bookish girl--the two have almost nothing in common. Until fate throws them together and the attraction is irresistible. Soon Beth is pushing Salva to set his sights higher than ever--because she knows he has more to offer, more than even he realizes.
Then tragedy strikes--and threatens to destroy everything that Salva has worked for. Will Beth's love be enough to save him?
Thoughtful and romantic, this is a beautifully written story about following your heart and fulfilling your potential.

Why I am looking forward to this: I love love love stories about two totally different characters falling hard for each other, and actually being right for each other. I'm looking forward to this, which I imagine to be a very sweet story!

  1. I feel like this whole two characters from different social groups has been done soooo many times. But for some reason this one seems like it would be different. I'm going to add it to goodreads. Great pick! Here's my Waiting On Wednesday

  2. Opposite pairings are also among my favorites 🙂 It's creepy... I first heard of this writer like a week ago and I've been stumbling over her name almost daily ever since o.O
    Anyhow, popular guy & bookish girl would be a change from the usual good girl / bad boy pairing! Thanks for pointing it out, and for stopping by yesterday!
