Meant To Be by Lauren Morill

This spring break, Julia’s rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she’s partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts … from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love. Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.


“I need to experience books, not just read them.”

About The Author:
Lauren Elizabeth Morrill is many things, including, but not limited to, a writer, an educator, a badass roller derby skater, a former band nerd, an aggressive driver, and a die-hard Mac person. She also watches a lot of TV, eats a lot of junk food, and drinks a lot of Coke. It’s a wonder her brain and teeth haven’t rotted out of her head.

Lauren is the author of Meant to Be, Being Sloane Jacobs, The Trouble With Destiny, and the forthcoming My Unscripted Life (October 2016), all from Random House.

Point is, maybe some people wouldn’t want to be around me all day, but there are people out there who would. And they’re smart and funny. And they like some of the same things I like and hate some of the things I hate, but they also introduce me to all kinds of new things. That’s as close to ‘meant to be’ as I can imagine.

Looking for a guilty (reading) pleasure? If you like Anna and the French Kiss, Meant to Be, and This is What Happy Looks Like, give Kristan Higgins, a try!

Kristan Higgins writes the book version of rom-com chick flicks. Okay, so they’re a little predictable. (Spoiler alert: the character gets the guy in the end.) But that’s part of their fun. Sometimes, you just need a happy ending.  Plus, the characters are funny and relatable, and I always want to move to their tiny, charming hometowns. (And adopt their dogs!).
