Release Blitz: Something' About That Boy by Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: June 23

Banner Spurlock knew the moment that he walked into Kilgore High School and saw Perry Street that life was about to get interesting.

Forced to move due to a problem at home, a problem in the form of his ex-best friend hating him for something that Banner’s father did, Banner doesn’t think very much could improve in his life.

He left his status as king of Benton High School behind and moved to a new school where not only would he have to try out for a new football team and prove himself, but he’d also have to find a place for himself in the hierarchy.

Only, the moment that he arrives, he knows that finding a place for himself won’t be too hard. Especially when his reputation follows him all the way to Kilgore, Texas.

Perry Street hates school. She hates her peers—most of them anyway—and she hates her classes. All she wants to do is finish her senior year, graduate, and find a place that will give her a full scholarship so that she doesn’t have to be stuck here forever.

That’s her goal, anyway.

Then she walks into first period, on her first day of her senior year, and sits down. Seconds later, he walks in and changes every single plan she’s ever made.

It isn’t long before Perry starts to fall for the bad boy who doesn’t care who he does and doesn’t impress. The boy makes her heart flutter. The boy makes her want things that she’s never wanted before. Not ever.

The boy brings trouble with him that nearly kills her.

Review by Lisa Kane

Banner Spurlock is starting a new school in his senior year. Senior year. Can there be anything worse for a kid that age? But his dad is a cop and there was an incident with the father of Banner's best friend. The result of that incident is having to leave the school where he was the popular guy, the hot shot quarterback and start all over. Where he is a nobody and knows no one.

Perry Street tries to stay under the radar. She doesn't engage, she plays volleyball, runs cross-country and track. She has a handful of close friends and has no love for the phonies and loud mouths who think they rule the school.

When Banner shows up on his first day of school he ends up sitting next to Perrey. He likes what he sees, even though she gives off her usual chilly exterior. But Perry wants to get on the football team, so he might be intrigued, but he's gotta get down to business.

Banner has a lot of confidence, but he has the talent to back it up. He'll fight for his place on the team, attracting a lot of buzz about him while he does it. This doesn't all go unnoticed by Perry.

Theirs is a slow burn. Banner brings out the best in Perry. She's much too introverted and needs a good jump start to take a few chances and start to live a life of fun. As close as Banner and Perry get (and there's a little bit of drama surrounding them) Banner's keeping a secret. One that could lose him Perry when she finds out.

I love a well written young adult novel. One that has all the biting and clawing of the social climbing teenagers who believe they are the sun and the rest of the minions are planets lucky enough to be in their orbit. Something About That Boy is a cute read, slightly angsty with a great story you can sink your teeth in!
