Meet Blaine Bowers

The story follows high school junior and artist Blaine Bowers, who seemingly has it all — an ambitious boyfriend, a caring family, and a core group of devoted friends.

Lucky him, right? Well, Blaine’s perfect world starts to implode after he gets dumped right before spring break. Blindsided, Blaine’s ex-boyfriend Joey explains that he needs to focus on finding a guy who is a bit more serious — a guy like Zach Chesterton.

We know, just hearing a name like Zach Chesteron evokes outrage for us, too!

In an Elle Woods moment of the objection, Blaine decides to prove Joey wrong by running for senior student council president. A position Zach Chesterton is also campaigning to take over. A battle of the boyfriends, old and new!

Will Blaine’s efforts be worth it? Who will win the presidency, and will he be able to win back Joey? We know the answer because we’ve read the book — now it’s your turn.
