I missed featuring the Summer Reading Challenge book last week, so this week, you get two great books for one! :)
The first book, is "Crush Control" by Jennifer Jabaley.
About The Book:
Willow has spent most of her life as her mother's sidekick in a popular Las Vegas hypnotism show. So when she and her mom move back to their sleepy southern hometown to start over, she thinks she's in for a life of quiet normalcy. Except that her new life turns out to be anything but, when she kinda sorta hypnotizes Quinton, the hottest guy on the football team, to fall madly, deeply, head over heels in love with her. But what started out as an innocent way to make her best friend, Max, jealous soon gets way out of hand, and Willow begins to wonder if the mind - and more importantly, the heart - is something you can really control.
This is one of the cutest young-adult books that I've had the pleasure of reading. Jennifer Jabaley does a wonderful job of pulling her readers into the heart of the story of young love and young heartache. Sassy, fun, and heartwarming, "Crush Control" is a great summer read for great fiction fans of any age.
