This full-length novel by debut author Natalie Blitt is a pitch-perfect blend of Stephanie Perkins and Miranda Kenneally that proves the age-old adage: opposites attract.

Seventeen-year-old Abby has only one goal for her summer: to make sure she is fluent in French—well, that, and to get as far away from baseball and her Cubs-obsessed family as possible. A summer of culture and language, with no sports in sight.

That turns out to be impossible, though, because her French partner is the exact kind of boy she was hoping to avoid. Eight weeks. 120 hours of class. 80 hours of conversation practice with someone who seems to wear baseball caps and jerseys every day.

But Zeke in French is a different person than Zeke in English. And Abby can’t help but fall for him, hard. As Abby begins to suspect that Zeke is hiding something, she has to decide if bridging the gap between who she is and who he is is worth the risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful YA Romance I loved this book. I started it on the night of December 23rd and had to read it straight through to discover what happened. The premise is clever: smart high school students Abby and Zeke meet in a summer camp for advanced French students and can't seem to get along except when they speak French. How Natalie weaves in French is impeccable (or formidable en francais!). Can there be a détente? What is Zeke hiding? And can Abby ever lighten up about her hatred for all things sports? Natalie Blitt does a wonderful job of taking us along for the ride and her two main Characters, along with the supporting characters, especially Alice, are completely and utterly real. You know these people. This is a romantic story that has you rooting for the characters to make it. An impressive debut!
