Meet the girl who’s “Most Likely to Make Everything Worse.”
TV writer Ellie Jenkins worked her butt off to put her nerdy, outcast teen years behind her. So there’s a certain delicious irony in that she works for a hit show about popular high school kids when she was So. Not. Cool. And now she’s been offered the promotion of a lifetime—if she attends her reunion. But Ellie’s memory of High School Hell isn’t nearly as traumatic as the reality . . .
No one at the reunion is what Ellie expected. Not her ex-best friend, who still has the ability to see right through Ellie. And not her secret crush, who has only gotten hotter, sexier, and way more complicated. The only way she’s going to survive this whole weird ordeal is by fixing her bad high school karma, kissing the boy who got away, and getting the hell out of Ohio for good. But Ellie’s discovering that in real life, she can’t just rewrite the script.

About the Author
Victoria Fulton and Faith McClaren are besties and co-authors of the international Wattpad phenomenon and Watty award-winning rom-com Ellie Is Cool Now, as well as young adult psychological thriller Horror Hotel. Originally from Ohio and Texas, Victoria and Faith now live and write in too-sunny Los Angeles, California. Victoria lives with her fiancé and their two cat children. She has a degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Dayton, so naturally, she co-runs a PR agency with her other bestie when she’s not writing about smooching and serial killers. Faith lives with her guitar-making husband, Pokemon-loving son, and two scruffy dogs. When she isn’t listening to BTS or watching K-dramas, Faith writes contemporary romance novels and volunteers with wolves in a sanctuary outside Los Angeles.
