Two sworn enemies start to fall in love through anonymous notes in How to Speak Boy, a fun and charming YA novel from Tiana Smith.
Quinn and Grayson have been fierce speech and debate rivals for years. They can’t stand one another, either in competition or in real life.
But when their AP Government teacher returns their school assignments to the wrong cubbies, they begin exchanging anonymous notes without knowing who the other one is.
Despite their differences, the two come together through their letters and find themselves unknowingly falling for the competition. Before the state tournament, the two of them need to figure out what they want out of life, or risk their own future happiness. After all, what’s the point of speech and debate if you can’t say what’s in your heart?

My Review:

Oh, how I loved this adorable quick and easy read!  It reminded me of You've Got Mail and is perfect for high school girls.  It's clean, it's funny, it's a little bit formulaic but I could totally live with that. I loved the falling into friendship then into romance.  It was fun to yell at the characters since we the readers get to be somewhat omniscient.  I highly recommend this book.


I gratefully received a free copy of this book upon request.  I'm leaving my review voluntarily and all opinions are my own.

Author Bio:
Tiana Smith is a copywriter turned novelist who grew up in the Rocky Mountains. When she isn’t writing, she’s chasing after her ninja boy, reading, or binging the Disney Channel. She’d love to be fluent in sign language, but for now she gets by with awkward hand gestures and even more awkward French. She has double degrees in Honors and English from Westminster College but wants to go back to school to be a lion tamer.
