Sarah Burke is just about perfect. She’s got killer blue eyes,
gorgeous blond hair, and impeccable grades. There’s just one tiny-all
right, enormous-flaw: her nose. But even that’s not so bad. Sarah’s got
the best best friend and big goals for print journalism fame.
the first day of senior year, Rock Conway walks into her journalism
class and, well, rocks her world. Problem is, her best friend, Kristen,
falls for him too. And when Rock and Kristen stand together, it’s like
Barbie and Ken come to life. So when Kristen begs Sarah to help her nab
Rock, Sarah does the only thing a best friend can do-she agrees. For
someone so smart, what was she thinking?
This hip retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac is filled with hilariously misguided matchmaking, sweet romance, and a gentle reminder that we should all embrace our flaws.

His suicidal threat brought his newfound popularity–and a taste of what life could hold for him–but can he live with the fallout if he decides not to go through with his plan?
