Just Friends by Tiffany PitcockA new spin on the classic smart-girl-and-bad-boy setup, this witty contemporary romance shows how easily a friendship – even one built on an elaborate lie – can become so much more.
Jenny meets Chance for the very first time when she is assigned as his partner in their Junior Oral Communications class. But after they rescue a doomed assignment with one clever lie, the whole school is suddenly convinced that Little-Miss-Really-Likes-Having-A’s and the most scandalous heartbreaker in school have been best friends forever. It’s amazing how quickly a lie can grow―especially when you really, really want it to be the truth.
With Jenny, Chance can live the normal life he’s always kind of wanted. And with Chance, Jenny can have the exciting teen experiences that TV shows and movies have always promised. Through it all, they hold on to the fact that they are “just friends.” But that might be the biggest lie of all.
Debut author Tiffany Pitcock delivers a spot-on depiction of first love and the high school rumor mill in Just Friends, chosen by readers like you for Macmillans young adult imprint Swoon Reads.

"Us & Them" (2018) — a Netflix original
Such a premise is ripe for a lot of potent comedic potential mixed with the very real pains of adolescent memories, but Kumble never raises the characters and their relationships above one dimension. Because of this, the central romance isn't nearly as swoon-worthy as it should be, and what surrounds it hits too many false notes for comfort. While escorting talent-free, semi-psychotic pop-star-in-the-making Samantha James Anna Faris to Paris for the holidays, a freak accident onboard their private plane leads to an unscheduled landing near his old home in New Jersey. Stranded there for a day, Chris, with Samantha in tow, returns to stay with his daffily loving mom Julie Hagerty and sex-crazed year-old brother, Mike Christopher Marquette. While out for a night on the town, Chris unexpectedly comes into contact with Jamie for the first time in ten years.
