Description

Was it just a cell phone swap...or fate? It's bad enough when high-school senior Keeley mistakenly swaps cell phones with a stranger. It's even worse when the stranger turns out to be an obnoxious, self-centered boy named Talon...who's just left for football camp with her phone. Reluctantly, the two agree to forward messages for a week. As Keeley gets to know Talon through their texts, she finds out he's more than just an egocentric jock. In fact, the two fall for each other, hard. But Talon has been keeping a secret. One that makes their relationship all but impossible. Will Keeley ever be able to trust him? This romance offers high-school drama, humor and heart, plus a love story that will sweep you away.

        February 15, 2017
        A text-messaging accident leads to romance. Keeley's twin, Zach, has always stood out, with lots of friends and football-star status. Keeley's best friend, Nicky, is busy with a summer school class at a community college, leaving the white teen feeling somewhat left out. A phone mix-up and an initial texting spree connect Keeley and Talon, a boy she's never met. The first-person narrative shows Keeley to be combatively flirty, while Talon's macho bravado is clearly a smoke screen. The phone interactions, represented by iconic text-message bubbles, are critical to the plot, integrated into a story that feels otherwise somewhat outdated. There's little angst, naughty behavior including alcohol is offstage for the most part, and Keeley's and Zach's parents are conveniently clueless though lovingly interested in their offspring. All of the teens are seniors looking toward college and with serious plans for the future, making them feel rather vanilla, an impression that is reinforced by an apparent absence of diversity in race, ethnicity, and class. The one exception is Talon's mother, Darlene, who makes a cameo as an outrageously costumed, blonde cowgirl with a Texas accent. The connection between the twins helps to provide some emotional weight, as does a social media scandal that causes trouble between Talon and Keeley. Blandly engaging. (Romance. 12-16)

        Gr 9 Up-Keeley and her best friend end every summer in the same way: they go to the fair at the pier and ride the Ferris wheel. This time, the ritual is more important because the girls are beginning their senior year and their futures after high school are uncertain. While in line for the Ferris wheel, Keeley suddenly realizes that she does not have her phone, so she rushes back to the food area to try to find it. Luckily, she sees a phone on the ground; it's only later that she notices that it isn't hers. It turns out that it belongs to Talon, who is on his way to football camp-with her phone, instead of his-and they'll have to wait a week until they can switch again. Thus begins the transformation from quiet, shy Keeley to strong, assertive Keeley. Over the course of the week, Keeley and Talon fall for each other, but life is complicated. Once they discover each other's true identities, the obstacles to their romance mount. Summers's debut novel, which started as The Cell Phone Swap on Wattpad, uses text messages to help move the plot along, a narrative choice that at first feels forced but gradually works well. While the book relies on a cliched trope, it is laugh-out-loud funny in parts. YAs who appreciate a good love story will overlook the predictable plot and enjoy seeing the events play out. VERDICT The author has taken a typical summer romance and made it fresh. Purchase where contemporary romances are in high demand.-Nicole Detter-Smith, Homestead High School, IN

        Keeley accidentally swaps phones with Talon, who leaves for football camp before they realize the mistake. The teens--who've never met in person--fall for each other via text; Keeley doesn't know that Talon is actually her popular twin brother's rival. The potential to meaningfully explore how people's behavior differs when texting versus face-to-face is sadly unmet, but the romantic banter is entertaining.
