The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things by Ann AguirreThe Queen of Bright & Shiny Things by Ann Aguirre

Goodreads – Contemp. YA – April 7th 2015 by Feiwel & Friends

Sage Czinski is trying really hard to be perfect. If she manages it, people won’t peer beyond the surface, or ask hard questions about her past. She’s learned to substitute causes for relationships, and it’s working just fine… until Shane Cavendish strolls into her math class. He’s a little antisocial, a lot beautiful, and everything she never knew she always wanted.

Shane Cavendish just wants to be left alone to play guitar and work on his music. He’s got heartbreak and loneliness in his rearview mirror, and this new school represents his last chance. He doesn’t expect to be happy; he only wants to graduate and move on. He never counted on a girl like Sage.

But love doesn’t mend all broken things, and sometimes life has to fall apart before it can be put back together again…

Ann Aguirre is one of my auto-buy authors. She never disappoints! So, while this book would not ordinarily be up my alley (a bit too “teenagers find themselves tragically” for my taste), I am still looking forward to it. What can I say? It’s a magical power of Aguirre’s.
