When Rain Mackenzie is expelled from her British boarding school, she can’t believe her bad luck. Not only is she forced to move to New England, USA, she’s also sent to the local high school, as a punishment. Rain makes it her mission to dislike everything about Northbrooke High, but what she doesn’t bank on is meeting Jesse Devlin... Jesse is the hottest guy Rain’s ever seen and he plays guitar in an awesome rock band! There’s just one small problem ... Jesse already has a girlfriend, little miss perfect Amber Lawrence, who looks set to cause trouble as Rain and Jesse grow closer. But, what does it matter? New England sucks anyway, and Rain doesn’t plan on sticking around ...Does she?

About the Author:

Christina Courtenay lives in Herefordshire and is married with two children. Although born in England, she is half Swedish and was brought up in Sweden. In her teens, the family moved to Japan and she had the opportunity to travel extensively in the Far East and other parts of the world. Her debut novel Trade Winds, a historical romance and adventure story, was short-listed for the Pure Passion Award for Best Historical Fiction 2011. Her second novel, The Scarlet Kimono, received the Best Historical Fiction prize for the Big Red Read 2011. Her novels Highland Storms and The Gilded Fan both won the Historical Novel of the Year award (Highland Storms in 2012 and The Gilded Fan in 2014), while The Silent Touch of Shadows (time slip) won the Festival of Romance award for Best Historical in 2013. Christina also writes contemporary YA and New England Rocks was shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year award in the YA category in 2014. Her hobbies include genealogy, archaeology (the armchair variety), listening to loud rock music and collecting things. She loves dogs, reading and chocolate.

Review:

"New England Rocks by Christina Courtenay is a well-written teen novel which will entice girls in early teens. It seems clean and wholesome and deals with real problems that many teen girls face: moving to a totally different area, falling in love, finding the object of your love unavailable, a jealous other girl, being snubbed by some at school, being accepted by others, wanting to move away, and many other teen issues. The love story develops in a realistic way and has as a theme throughout the novel the teens obsession with music and bands. The story reads well and would be a good gift for any teen girl." (Bonnie Neely, Amazon Top Reviewer)

"Rain....I have no words for her except to say that she IS AWESOME. I mean come on, not only is she from England but she has the accent to confirm it, she does archery, plays soccer, drives big fancy killing machine cars-without a license, knows about three languages and her parents are cool and have titles. Jesse was funny and cute... Throughout the book they get close and learn about things in the others’ lives that no one else does." (Night Owl Teen)

"I’m a huge fan of Christina Courtenay’s work, so I had high hopes when I heard that she had written a Young Adult book. I was not disappointed, New England Rocks is one of the finest examples of contemporary romance for young adults that I have read in many years... I adored this book and it was just so easy to read! I loved the way it flowed so well and how the story and character development was paced just right. A real joy to read. 5 Stars!" (Sorcha O'Dowd, Old Victorian Quill)

"Courtenay crafts a spectacular, fun-filled book." (RT Book Reviews)
