Ellie Is Cool Now

Forever: Grand Central. Mar. 2023. 352p. ISBN 9781538739235. pap. $15.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Available to libraries for the first time, this newly re-published version of Fulton and McClaren’s (Horror Hotel) 2018 Wattpad sensation finds successful television writer Ellie Jenkins going back to the high school she hated in order to get her dream job. She’s coerced by her boss to return to her hometown of Stonybrook, OH, and attend the 10-year high school reunion she planned on skipping. In order to gain a fresh perspective and be promoted to co-executive producer of the TV show Cooler Than You, Ellie must complete a series of challenges that reunite her with classmates she hasn’t seen in a decade. Over the course of one wild week, Ellie will rekindle old relationships and friendships, including with ex-best friend Roxy and longtime crush Mark, who helps her with her quest. Maybe high school won’t be so bad the second time around. Readers will enjoy Ellie’s cynical sense of humor and the well-drawn supporting characters, along with her newly rekindled relationship with Mark, in this second-chance romance with shades of Never Been Kissed.
VERDICT A solid addition to any public library romance collection.
