What if your soul mate was decided for you?

It started happening a few years ago: the names of MTBs-"meant to be" mates-appeared emblazoned on the skin at age eighteen. Agatha's best friend has embraced the phenomenon and is head over heels in love with her MTB. But Aggy isn't so sure.

As she struggles with accepting her MTB fate, she finds herself falling for a coworker at the local amusement park. Is he a better match? What does Agatha really want in a mate, and moreover, what does she want for herself?

With her trademark wit and irreverence, acclaimed author Julie Halpern explores an age-old question: Who are we meant to be with?

Julie Halpern is the author of the YA novels Get Well Soon and its sequel, Have a Nice Day; Into the Wild Nerd Yonder, Don't Stop Now, and the F-It List. She is also the author of a novel for adults, Maternity Leave. She lives outside of Chicago, with her husband, the author/artist Matthew Cordell, and their two children.

Editorial Reviews

"Halpern (The F- It List) tackles questions of soul mates and destiny in this charming and bawdily funny novel. Aggy's stubborn skepticism gives the story a healthy dose of realism, and Halpern's setup is a smart allegory for the choices teens are forced to make after high school. Whether these decisions are ours or part of a greater plan is irrelevant, Halpern suggests. What matters, as Aggy discovers, is making a choice to begin with."--Publishers Weekly, starred review"Halpern has a fine ear for authentic teenage conversation and doesn't get bogged down in scientific minutia, even as she addresses it in fascinating ways... A great choice for where Ally Condie's Matched and Kiera Cass's Selection series are popular."--School Library Journal
