Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

Release Date: November 2012
 

 

Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question. 

It's one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she's queen of following rules and being prepared. That's why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that's also why she's chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB ("meant to be").

But 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.

"If you're into swoony romances with a little bit of history thrown in, you'll love Meant to Be."--HelloGiggles.com 

"Fun, fresh and irresistibly romantic. STB (SURE to be) loved!"--Sarah Mlynowski

"Readers of Jennifer E. Smith and Stephanie Perkins will revel in this debate about love ruled by the stars or as a matter of the heart."--Shelf Awareness

About the author:

Lauren Morrill grew up in Maryville, TN, where she was a short-term Girl Scout, a (not so) proud member of the marching band, and a trouble-making editor for the school newspaper.

I might be a bit cynical but I don't think so. I think you can find people you get along with and love but I don't think there is a cosmic craziness and that there is only 1 person you are meant to be with.

I don't think so. I think there can be a couple of options for everyone and we end up with someone based on our choices. I also believe that two dedicated people can make any relationship work and can love each other.

I do believe it yes! I was married then divorce. The first marriage was not my "one". But the guy I am marrying now is and always will be!

I think that we all make choices, but there are times in our lives when we're meant to be aligned with one person. My grandmother, while widowed at a young age, was fortunate to have more than one soulmate.

I don't think so. I don't believe in just one right person. Love is a choice. Everyday I CHOOSE my husband. Maybe that doesn't sound romantic to some that believe in fate or just one person, but I think it's terribly romantic.

I think everyone has a "meant to be" I found mine....everyone can. And it's usually when you stop looking that fate sends you "the sign". :-)

Not everyone, but I think that if you pray hard enough, you will find your "meant to be" with person.
