An insightful coming-of-age novel for girls with no interest in being "Pretty in Pink".

El Marini just isn't fitting into the new life she's been forced to create without her dad. Her mom and sister have accepted his absence and moved on, but El is convinced things will get back to normal if she just keeps her feelings of loss to herself and waits it out.

Life at her new public school would have been unbearable if weren't for Eric Callahan. As her crush grows to epic proportions, she'll do anything to be more like the popular girls he notices, even buying the first pink top she's ever owned. But then she meets Dylan, a quiet artistic-type who is both unnerving and annoying as he shines a light on El's misguided attempts to attract Eric. El's need for acceptance will hit home with teens as she finally sees that chasing boys has distracted her from making peace with the past and finding herself.

About the Author:

KAREN TAYLEUR lives in Australia with her husband and two children. Chasing Boys is her first teen novel. www.karentayleur.blogspot.com

From Booklist:

With her father gone, El’s new life feels temporary. The new public school and tiny apartment she shares with her mom and sister are more like placeholders until she can return to her old life. Only two things feel permanent: her new best friends, endearingly naive Desi and the blasé Margot, and her epic crush on Eric Callahan. But then there’s Dylan. He stares at her, sometimes with disapproval for liking Eric, who already has a perfect girlfriend. The premise is not new. Will she end up with the “dreamboat” jock, or the curious artist with a past? Chasing Boys reads like a diary without being in the format of one, and short chapters (some with only one sentence) make this title attractive to reluctant readers. All the ingredients of El’s life are blended seamlessly, never downplaying the audience’s intelligence, as Tayleur captures the all-consuming nature of a teenage crush without making El ridiculous. Moody, poetic, and intimate, this book is billed as the “romance for girls who don’t like pink,” but is much more than that. Grades 8-11. --Courtney Jones
