A 2017 Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers, this witty and entertaining contemporary debut deftly combines high school drama with pitch-perfect flirty banter.

Taylor Simmons is screwed. Things were hard enough when her dedication to her studies earned her the title of Ice Queen, but after she got drunk at a party and woke up next to bad boy surfer Evan McKinley, the entire school seems intent on tearing Taylor down with mockery and gossip. Desperate to salvage her reputation, Taylor persuades Evan to pretend they're in a serious romantic relationship. After all, it's better to be the girl who tames the wild surfer than just another notch on his surfboard.

Readers will be ready to sign their own love contract after reading The Way to Game the Walk of Shame, a fun and addicting contemporary YA romance by Jenn P. Nguyen and chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads.

About the Author:

Jenn P. Nguyen fell in love with books in third grade and spent the rest of her school years reading through lunchtime and giving up recess to organize the school library. She has a degree in business administration from the University of New Orleans and still lives in the city with her husband. Jenn spends her days reading, dreaming up YA romances, and binge watching Korean dramas all in the name of 'research'. The Way to Game the Walk of Shame is her debut novel.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up—Ambition and perfectionism have kept Taylor more focused on her GPA than on her social life. The only student with better grades is Brian, her close friend whom she thinks she could like, but in her opinion, relationships can wait until she's got everything else that she wants, specifically, admission to the college of her dreams. Of course, her plans go off the rails when she's wait-listed at Yale. Evan has no plans. He's a typical bad boy (typical in that he's not really "bad" at all, just misunderstood) who has a reputation for treating girls like they're disposable. After Taylor and Evan wake up in bed together—with no memory of how they got there from the party they left—Taylor decides that the only way to save her reputation is for Evan to pretend to be her boyfriend, whom she will "reform." Readers familiar with the tropes of an opposites-attract romance won't be surprised when the two begin to fall for each other. Nguyen is adept at creating romantic tension and writing love scenes, which teens will appreciate. She writes from both perspectives, giving readers some insight into character motivation, yet it's still not enough to explain why the characters don't seem to recognize their feelings for each other until the last chapters of the book. Other inconsistencies in character development, some messy descriptive writing, and loose plot threads may distract readers from Taylor and Evan's relationship. VERDICT Teens looking for an easy escape into romance should be satisfied with this low-stakes quick read.—Joy Piedmont, LREI, New York City
