ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Jess has an agenda. Her best friend was humiliated by boys from a rival college at their university, and Jess is going to teach them a lesson, starting with the arrogant, calculating sexist rugby-playing Blondie. But what starts as an episode in the gender wars and contemporary social media issues, becomes a love story of two young adults who have to see past surface appearances. Gritty, tough and definitely for older teens! Lindy


Jess Gordon is out for revenge.
Last year the jocks from Knights College tried to shame her best friend. This year she and a hand-picked college girl gang are going to get even...

The lesson: don't mess with Unity girls. The target: Blondie, a typical Knights stud, arrogant, cold... and smart enough to keep up with Jess...

A neo-riot grrl with a penchant for fanning the flames meets a rugby-playing sexist pig - sworn enemies or two people who happen to find each other when they're at their most vulnerable?

It's all Girl meets Boy, Girl steals from Boy, seduces Boy, ties Boy to a chair and burns Boy's stuff. Just your typical love story.
