Eliza takes center stage in this swoon-worthy third installment of the Bookish Boyfriends series
Eliza Gordon-Fergus is an expert rule-follower. She has to be; her scientist parents dictate her day-to-day decisions and forbid her from dating. Which is why she finds Curtis Cavendish maddening. He’s never punished for his class-clown antics—and worse, his mischief actually masks brilliance. Like, give-Eliza-a-run-for-valedictorian brilliance.
When Eliza reads Frankenstein for English class, she’s left feeling more like an experiment than a daughter. Curtis agrees to trade her Anne of Green Gables under one condition: She has to beat him at the science fair. Eliza knows they’re supposed to be competing, but the more time they spend together, the more she realizes she’s in over her head. Because one thing’s certain about Curtis: He makes Eliza want to break all the rules.

Tiffany Schmidt is a former sixth-grade teacher. She lives in Pennsylvania with her family and spends her time baking cookies, chasing her sons and puggles around their backyard, and writing the kissing scenes first. Tiffany is the author of the Bookish Boyfriends series—A Date with Darcy, The Boy Next Story, and Talk Nerdy to Me—as well as four other books for young adults. 
Amy Spalding is the author of several novels for teens, including Kissing Ted Callahan (and Other Guys) and The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the Best Burger in Los Angeles), which earned a starred review from Kirkus. She lives in Los Angeles.
Diana Peterfreund is the author of 13 books for adults, teens, and children, including the Secret Society Girl series, the Killer Unicorn series, For Darkness Shows the Stars, and Omega City. Her books have received starred reviews from Booklist, School Library Journal, and VOYA, and her books have been named in Amazon’s Best Books of the Year. She lives outside Washington, DC, with her family.
