The Trouble with Flirting- Young Adult Novel by Claire LaZebnik

The Trouble With Flirting

Franny’s supposed to be working this summer, not flirting. But you can’t blame her when guys like Alex and Harry are around. . . .

Franny Pearson never dreamed she’d be attending the prestigious Mansfield Summer Theater Program. And she’s not, exactly. She’s working for her aunt, the resident costume designer. But sewing her fingers to the bone does give her an opportunity to spend time with her crush, Alex Braverman. If only he were as taken with the girl hemming his trousers as he is with his new leading lady.

When Harry Cartwright, a notorious flirt, shows more than a friendly interest in Franny, she figures it can’t hurt to have a little fun. But as their breezy romance grows more complicated, can Franny keep pretending that Harry is just a carefree fling? And why is Alex suddenly giving her those deep, meaningful looks? In this charming tale of mixed messages and romantic near-misses, one thing is clear: Flirting might be more trouble than Franny ever expected.

“God, I loved this book. The only thing I regret about blowing through its story is that it gave me a terrible case of TEABS. It’s fun and sweet and dreamy, and it hits close to my heart.”

“Claire LaZebnik truly does have the makings of a Queen of Teen Fiction, and I’m excited to see what she comes up with in the future to come. The Trouble With Flirting is definitely one of my favorite contemporaries so far in 2013, and it will have you smiling from start to finish. ”

“And may I just say, LaZebnik has done it again? She’s done it again. I’ve read (and seen) my fair share of reimagined/updated/Austen-inspired stories, but hers are most certainly among my favorites. LaZebnik makes it feel effortless, never like she’s trying to hard to make the story fit the world and situation she’s created — never like it’s forced. It just… does fit. What’s more, she makes it a story all her own,  and everything else just falls into place.”
