Perfect Ten (Hardcover)
Okay listen, I'm just a sucker, okay? I have a weird pickiness that even I can't define exactly but I really loved reading this. But also, like, anything with some witchcraft (even though it's subtle) along with dramatic gay boys should basically be given to my through an IV. It's cute, it's fun, and it makes a good book for distraction during a particularly stressful time.

"A sweet summer read about a boy looking for love and the lengths he will go to to find it." --Teen Vogue It's been two years since Sam broke up with the only other eligible gay guy in his high school, so to say he's been going through a romantic drought is the understatement of the decade. When Meg, his ex-Catholic-turned-Wiccan best friend, suggests performing a love spell, Sam is just desperate enough to try. He crafts a list of ten traits he wants in a boyfriend and burns it in a cemetery at midnight on Friday the thirteenth. Enter three seemingly perfect guys, all in pursuit of Sam. There's Gus, the suave French exchange student; Jamie, the sweet and shy artist; and Travis, the guitar-playing tattooed enigma. Even Sam's ex-boyfriend, Landon, might want another chance. But does a Perfect Ten even exist? Find out in this delectable coming-of-age romcom with just a touch of magic.
