The next course for me in the BookSparks University Fall Reading Challenge for 2014 is Finding Mr. Right 101 with the required reading of A Blind Spot For Boys by Justina Chen.
About The Book:
Sixteen-year-old Shana is officially on a Boy Moratorium. After a devastating breakup, she decides it's time to end the plague of Mr. Wrongs and devote herself to her true passion: photography. Enter Quattro, the undeniably intriguing lacrosse player who slams into Shana one morning in Seattle. Sparks don't simply fly; they ignite - and so does Shana's interest. But just as she's about to rethink her ban on boys, she receives crushing news: Her dad is going blind. Shana and her parents vow to make the most of the time her father has left to see, so they plan a photo safari to Machu Picchu. But even as Shana travels away from Quattro, she can't get him out of her mind.
This is a great read! I love how it has such family loyalty in it. A lot of YA books don't these days. The character of Shana embodies the perfect 16 year old! Makes me remember when I was that age, and how I felt about love and such!
