Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally

Publication Date: July 5, 2016
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Reading Level: Young Adult
Captain of the soccer team, president of the Debate Club, contender for valedictorian: Taylor’s always pushed herself to be perfect. After all, that’s what is expected of a senator’s daughter. But one impulsive decision—one lie to cover for her boyfriend—and Taylor’s kicked out of private school. Everything she’s worked so hard for is gone, and now she’s starting over at Hundred Oaks High.

Soccer has always been Taylor’s escape from the pressures of school and family, but it’s hard to fit in and play on a team that used to be her rival. The only person who seems to understand all that she’s going through is her older brother’s best friend, Ezra. Taylor’s had a crush on him for as long as she can remember. But it’s hard to trust after having been betrayed. Will Taylor repeat her past mistakes or can she score a fresh start?

Why I Am Waiting

Miranda Kenneally always delivers on the feels. She takes badass female heroines, makes them even more awesome by kicking major butt at sports, and gives them swoony men that are unforgettable. This is the contemporary formula for the three s's: success, swoonyness, and sexiness. I am 100% down to read anything this women writes. Make my heart SQUEEE ten times over forever, Miranda! Forever a Miranda follower. <3 Plus, I need to know who makes cameos in this one!
