Love and Other Theories Lib/E Audio CD – Unabridged, 31 December 2014

Love and Other Theories is a fast-paced twist on the coming-of-age novel and the romantic comedy that Kirkus Reviews called careful, subtle, and aching in a starred review.
Aubrey and her best friends made a pact to play by the guys' rules when it comes to dating. They're hoping the rules will keep them from experiencing high school heartbreak--they don't realize that these rules could just as easily keep them from opening their hearts and minds.
And when new boy Nathan Diggs moves to town, Aubrey starts to think that some rules are meant to be broken.
With equal parts bite and romance, topped off with an irresistibly engaging voice, Alexis Bass's novel is one you won't want to miss.
A system for avoiding heartbreak falls apart in an unexpectedly insightful tale of friendship and loyalty...What looks poised to be a romantic comedy (girl meets boy; theories fail; love triumphs) turns into something far more complex and bittersweet. Each character's life is carefully imagined, from Chiffon, the target of the girls' ridicule, to Shelby herself, whose carefree armor slowly begins to crack. The bullying is never forgiven. The lovers, once estranged, are never entirely reunited. The theories are indeed debunked, but what is left in their place is a kind of vulnerability and regret that can't be summed up in a romantic platitude. Careful, subtle, and aching.-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
Bass' debut is an entertaining perspective on the battlefield of the teen dating world.-- "VOYA"
In her debut novel, Bass provides honest, incisive, and sometimes uncomfortable insights into the complicated intersections of friendship and romance, the ways sex can be wielded as a weapon, and the measures some teens take to protect themselves from pain. Readers navigating the tempestuous emotions and relationships of high school should readily connect with these characters' hopes, sorrows, and missteps as they prepare to strike out on their own.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Warning: Bass' debut novel will ignite all your feelings!-- "Wendy Higgins, New York Times bestselling author of the Sweet Evil trilogy"

The characters are authentic/multifaceted, the situations are complicated, the landscape is as real and reminiscent as it is heartbreaking. It's a rich, bold, gutsy debut, and absolutely deserves to be widely read. Highly recommend.
