OFFICIAL WINNER of the 2015 Wattys!!


Luke is popular. He's good looking, he gets invited to all the parties, and his peers worship the ground he walks on. But with popularity comes limitations. Don't do that, don't watch this, you like which band? As Luke rises on the social chain, the harder it is to keep up, and the less of himself he becomes. That is until Ari Quiroz decides to step into his life. 

Spunky, loud-mouthed, and fearless, Ari's petite body is jam-packed with enough confidence to roam the preppy hallways of Percival Shores High in her tattered shoes and flannels without a fear of judgment. Ari inadvertently shows Luke what it feels like to be himself, and is able to bring out the best in him.

As Luke slowly reverts back to his old self, and trades in his Dockers for a pair of skinny jeans, the popular crew at Percival Shores High will stop at nothing to make sure Luke plummets down the social ladder-- bringing his new punk rock friends with him. With the fear of being a freak again and all the temptations to be popular luring him in, Luke has to decide what's more important: senior year as a loser with life-long loser friends, or spend his last year of high school as Percival Shores royalty-- even if the vodka consumed keeps wiping away the memories.

If drunk words are sober thoughts, then Luke Hemmings is in for one hell of a hangover.

This is my third time reading, and this particular line gets me every time. I started cracking up, and my brother looks at me like I'm on drugs 〜( ̄▽ ̄〜)(〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜
