The Girl of His Dreams

The rules are simple: Play or get played. And never, ever, catch feelings.

That's the motto 17-year-old heartthrob Antonio Lopez lives by. Since his mother walked out, Antonio's father has taught him everything he needs to know about women: they can't be trusted, and a real man has more than one. So once Antonio gets what he wants from a girl, he moves on. But McPherson High's hot new beauty is turning out to be Antonio's first real challenge.

Miesha Wilson has a motto of her own: The thrill of the chase is not getting caught. Game knows game, and Miesha is so not interested. She's dumped her share of playboys and she's determined to stay clear of the likes of Antonio Lopez—until his crazy jealous ex aggravates her. But when she decides to play some games of her own, Miesha and Antonio find themselves wondering if love is real after all...

"Hot and poppin' with drama and life lessons. The world of teen lit has never seen anything like this before!" —Ni-Ni Simone, author of No Boyz Allowed, on Crazy Love

    June 15, 2013
    Drama reigns supreme in suburban New Jersey. Senior basketballer Antonio "Tone" Lopez can have any girl he wants. They throw themselves at his feet at school and sext him hot messages and pics at night. He can have anyone he wants, and he knows it. And he does. The only one he can't have is Miesha, the beautiful, stone-cold new girl in town from Brooklyn, who, of course, becomes the object of his affection. Tension sparks the moment she walks into the school. Every other girl is jealous of her beauty, and the drama escalates when Tone shows an interest in her. Threats are made. Punches are thrown. Weaves are torn--and more. Abrams' latest is good, raunchy fun. There's little actual profanity spoken by the characters, but the sex trash talk runs rampant. What's important, however, is that Tone and Miesha aren't just stereotypes, and Abrams works hard to humanize them with their back stories and dreams. But what teen readers will love the most are the full-on catfights, trash talk and sizzling romance. Good, dirty fun. (Romance. 15 & up)
