Eden:

Josh Evans and I have been best friends forever. He knows all my secrets, and I know all of his. So when he randomly asks me to help him lose his virginity, I sort of flip out. That’s a question that sends your mind to places you’ve seriously never considered before. Like, you know. Having sex. With your best friend. Except Josh doesn’t want to have sex with me—he wants me to help him find a girl. A nice girl who’s funny and smart and cute. Except he already knows a girl just like that…

Josh:

Eden Sumner is my best friend. So of course she’d be the person to help me find my perfect match, so I can drop my V card before I head off to college. Except the more we search, the more I realize that maybe the right girl has been by my side all along. I don’t need Eden’s help in finding me a girl to love. I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with Eden. But now she thinks I’m only after one thing…with anyone but her.

REVIEW:

Whenever I read a Monica Murphy YA story, I always find myself back in my 18 yrs. old mind.
I loved both characters Joshua and Eden, who have been best friends for years, all that changes when Josh ask her to find a girl to lose his virginity too. It was a good switch being a boy needing help and still being a virgin.
All the talk of sex made them look each other differently. I found them so cute together, it seems like they were the only ones who didn’t realise what was happening between them. I loved the other best friends Molly and Abraham they were so funny.
Monica’s knack is that it all seems so realistic, not all the made up with all the stars and music fading.
I would happy letting my teenage daughter read this and enjoy as much as I did.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

When fifteen-year-old Ciarán Morrigan eavesdrops on a conversation between his father and two mysterious strangers, his life—and the life of his little sister, Remiel—is changed forever. After their father makes a startling decision, the Morrigan siblings are forced to flee the only life they’ve ever known and embark on a dangerous adventure across the nation of Empirya. With the enlisted help of a disinherited vagabond, a cynical violinist, a fire-juggler with a fierce temper, an aspiring mechanic, and a cheerful librarian, Ciarán and Remiel must fight to escape the clutches of lethal pursuers. Their journey carries them through smog-filled cities, dark forests, humble towns, and perilous mountains, but will Remiel’s dark secret and ghosts from the past prevent the Morrigan children from finding a place they can truly call home?

EXCERPT:

 

Ramus stared blankly at the prostitute’s beckoning hand. The girl flexed her fingers, as though trying to conjure money from his pockets.
“I’ll do anything you ask if the price is right.”
Valkyrie reached across Ramus and pushed the girl’s hand away, saying, “He’s not interested, thank you.”
The girl narrowed her eyes. “I think he can answer for himself, honey.”
“And his answer is no, sweetie.”
Indignant, the girl turned her attention back to Ramus. “Listen, if you want to hire me you have to leave these three out of it.” She gestured to Valkyrie, Remiel, and me, her nose wrinkled. “There’s a place down on Furnace Street we can use for the night. Real cheap—I know the owner.”
Ramus wasn’t listening—his eyes were fixed on the rearview mirror. A gunshot ripped through the air. Remiel squealed and grabbed my arm again.
Ramus turned the key, and the cab sputtered back to life. “Time to go!”
“What was that?!” the prostitute shrieked.
Valkyrie reached over Ramus, grabbed the girl by the arms, and yanked her through the open window. She was just thin enough to fit, and she landed unceremoniously on Ramus’s lap. Her knee crashed into his groin, and he let out a pained yelp. Valkyrie pulled her again so she was sprawled on his lap instead.
“What are you doing!?” she howled as Ramus jammed his foot on the gas.
“It’s called saving your life, and you’re welcome!” Valkyrie snapped.
The girl let loose a series of vulgar curses as Valkyrie shoved her into the backseat between Remiel and me. The sickening scent of flowery perfume and smoke assaulted my nose. “Let me out of here!” she yelled.
“So you can get shot? No chance!” Valkyrie fired back, though he added in a low, irritated growl, “But it’s very tempting…”
“It was probably just a car backfire!” She reached over me, groping for the door handle. I was too stunned to stop her, even though I would be the one in danger of falling out of the cab if she succeeded.
Another gunshot rang out somewhere behind us. The girl screamed and jerked back into her seat.
“Drive faster!” she ordered.
We rocketed off into the murky evening. The girl dug her fingernails into my arm—much sharper than Remiel’s—but I was too scared to ask her to release me.
