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?
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.
Review of How To Speak Boy
Review (4 Stars): How To Speak Boy was a sweet and charming romance that reminded me so much of You’ve Got Mail. Quinn and Grayson have been at each other’s throats while being a part of the Speech and Debate team until their Coach makes them co-captains their Senior Year. To make matters worse, Quinn’s AP Politics teacher puts her assignment in the wrong cubbie, which accidentally leads Quinn to a friendship she never imagined. As Quinn exchanges notes with the anonymous cubbie owner, things begin to heat up between Quinn and Grayson. Now, Quinn must make a decision between falling for Grayson or her anonymous pen pal before things go too far.
I loved Quinn and Grayson’s story! I enjoyed them getting to know one another as pen pals and slowly falling for each other in real life. Quinn needed to someone that challenged her but also understood what she was going through. This was a sweet and wonderful story and I loved Ms. Smith’s books. Can’t wait to read the next one.
