Hicklebee's own TAB (Teen Advisory Board) will be hosting YA author Tiffany Schmidt and her new book in The Bookish Boyfriends series, The Boy Next Story. Inspired by the timeless classic Little Women, and coinciding with the book’s 150th anniversary, this book is sure to charm any reader who’s ever had a book boyfriend of her own.
There’s no one better than the boy next door. At least not according to Aurora Campbell, 14, who has been in love with Tobias May since their very first sandbox kiss. Rory likes Toby, but Toby likes Rory’s sister Merrilee, even though Merrilee is already dating Toby’s friend Fielding—and it’s all about to get even more complicated at Reginald R. Hero High, where our leading ladies’ romantic fantasies come true, often with surprising consequences.
Tiffany Schmidt is a former teacher who lives and writes in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. She is also the author of several young adult thrillers and dramas for Bloomsbury. Her first book in the Bookish Boyfriends series, A Date with Darcy, released in May 2018. Browse the rest of her books here.
"This light rom-com holds heartbreak, surprises, and significant Campbell family dynamics that will hit home with many teens."
"The Campbell girls' (mis)adventures at Hero High pick up without missing a beat in this follow-up to Bookish Boyfriends (2018) . . . Rory's story will ring a chord with die-hard romantics."
