A girl with it all planned out discovers a romance she never expected in this funny debut about a class trip to London that says you'll love "if you're into swoony romances with a little bit of history thrown in."

This spring break, Julia's rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she's partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love. Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.

an amazing book that made my heart pound. it showed that you can learn to love the ones in life that seemed to be bad in the beginning. I loved the story and no one could have written it better.

I loved this book!!! The ending was predictable but I still loved it. The characters are extremely realistic and likeable (the ones you're supposed to like anyway). Jason added humour to the book almost everywhere he was. Jason and Julia were great characters. The times when they were travelling London were written perfectly. Amazing job Lauren Morrill.
