HelloGiggles.com, November 24, 2012:
“If you’re into swoony romances with a little bit of history thrown in, you’ll love Meant to Be. I love this book because it’s funny, it has a super-relatable heroine, and it features a ton of romantic tension…Lauren Morrill rules and this book is awesome.”
Kirkus Reviews, October 15, 2012:
“The author has a good ear for comic dialogue.”
Publishers Weekly, October 22, 2012:
“Morrill’s debut is entertaining and quick-witted.”
Booklist, November 1, 2012:
“The traveling details are part of the fun: her friends are into shopping, not Shakespeare, and there are raucous puns about Big Ben. The contemporary scene with consumer name-dropping will grab readers…The core drama is the romance, with all its turnarounds and timeless realism.”
School Library Journal, January 2013:
“This delightful debut explores the excitement and insecurities of an unexpected first love…A great choice for teens who enjoyed Jennifer E. Smith’s The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, Gabrielle Zevin’s Elsewhere, or Rachel Cohn and David Levithan’s Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares.
