Hot British Boyfriend

HarperTeen. Feb. 2021. 336p. pap. $11.99. ISBN 9780063025912.
Gr 9 Up–After Ellie Nichols embarrasses herself in front of her entire school and becomes the subject of a meme, she decides to escape via her school’s study abroad trip to England to find adventure and, best of all, British guys. After arriving, she realizes that her classmates have a very different mentality than her—studying. Instead, Ellie wants to take in the sights and experience life with a hot English boy. However, once she finds a wonderful and debonair Brit, sandy-haired Will, she wonders if he’s right for her. Dev, her studying companion and new friend, makes things even more complicated. Should she be with Will or Dev? This book is perfect for any high schooler who loves cheesy romances. While going on a date with a complete stranger in a new country doesn’t make the most logical sense, readers will be swept away by this story. Characters are from a variety of backgrounds: Dev is Indian American and his large family wants him to be a successful doctor; Will is from a very successful family and he struggles with what he wants to do in life. New friend Huan, who has black hair, is gay, and Ellie’s race isn’t stated.
VERDICT This book will sweep Anglophiles and romantics off their feet.
