Willowdean, self-proclaimed fat girl and Dolly Parton-fanatic, is determined to be in charge of how her mother, classmates, and small town view her. Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with hunky Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does.

One last summer romp throughout Europe with his best friend Percy and Monty is determined that he will FINALLY tell Percy how he feels about him. Unexpected chaperones, detours, and pirates hilariously disrupt Percy and Monty's carefully planned trip but perhaps provide a better adventure than they ever expected.
What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them… all at once? Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control. (Goodreads)
