Lauren Morrill - Better ​Than the Best Plan
Plans ​are made to be broken. It's the last day of junior year, and seventeen-year-old Ritzy--short for Maritza--is pretty sure she has a great plan. Summer job--check. Hang with friends at the beach--check. Keep looking after herself as she's been doing since her mom bailed to follow her bliss--check. Or no check? After someone reports that Ritzy is living alone, a social worker shows up and puts her into foster care. That's surprise enough. Even more surprising? Ritzy has been in foster care before, as an infant, and the woman who cared for her then takes her in again. But maybe the greatest surprise of all for Ritzy is that living with her foster mother, Kristin, in Kristin's gorgeous house, isn't all that bad. And neither is the cute, friendly boy next door. If Ritzy's mom hadn't gotten her back all those years ago, this is the life she could have had. But is it the life she should have had? When Ritzy's old life catches up with her new one, she has some decisions to make. Can she plan for the worst, but still hope for the best?

Lauren Morrill - Meant ​to Be
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.

Lauren Morrill - Besser ​als der beste Plan
Julia ​träumt von der großen Liebe – und ganz klar, der perfekte Kandidat dafür ist Mark. Nur weiß der noch nichts von seinem Glück und ist auch nicht bei der Klassenfahrt nach London dabei, für die Julia schon so lange Pläne geschmiedet hat. Aber dass ausgerechnet der nervige Jason ihr Referatspartner wird, damit hat sie nicht gerechnet. Unterschiedlicher könnten die beiden nicht sein, doch als Julia nach einer wilden Party eine SMS von einer unbekannten Nummer bekommt, hilft Jason ihr, dem Absender quer durch London hinterherzujagen. Am Ende wartet eine Überraschung auf sie, denn manchmal kann das Leben auch den besten Plan durchkreuzen.

Lauren Morrill - My ​Unscripted Life
Perfect ​for fans of Jennifer L. Smith and Huntley Fitzpatrick, you'll love this funny and sweet contemporary romance about a Southern girl ready for a ho-hum summer until she meets the boy of her dreams who happens to be an international pop star. Sometimes love stories go off script. Another sultry Georgia summer is about to get a lot hotter. Dee Wilkie is still licking her wounds after getting rejected by the precollege fine arts program of her dreams. But if she’d gone away, she wouldn’t have been around to say yes to an unbelievable opportunity: working on the set of a movie filming in her small Southern town that just happens to be starring Milo Ritter, the famous pop star Dee (along with the rest of the world) has had a crush since eighth grade. It’s not like Dee will be sharing any screen time with Milo—she’s just a lowly PA. And Milo is so disappointingly rude that Dee is eager to stay far away from him. Except after a few chance meetings, she begins to wonder if just maybe there’s a reason for his offensive attitude, and if there’s more to Milo than his good looks and above-it-all Hollywood pedigree. Can a relationship with a guy like Milo ever work out for a girl like Dee? Never say never...

Lauren Morrill - The ​Trouble with Destiny
It’s ​not about the destination, it’s about the journey... With her trusty baton and six insanely organized clipboards, drum major Liza Sanders is about to take Destiny by storm - the boat, that is. When Liza discovered that her beloved band was losing funding, she found Destiny, a luxury cruise ship complete with pools, midnight chocolate buffets, and a $25,000 spring break talent show prize. Liza can’t imagine senior year without the band, and nothing will distract her from achieving victory. She’s therefore not interested when her old camp crush, Lenny, shows up on board, looking shockingly hipster-hot. And she’s especially not interested in Russ, the probably-as-dumb-as-he-is-cute prankster jock whose ex, Demi, happens be Liza’s ex–best friend and leader of the Athenas, a show choir that’s the band’s greatest competition. But it’s not going to be smooth sailing. After the Destiny breaks down, all of Liza’s best-laid plans start to go awry. Liza likes to think of herself as an expert at almost everything, but when it comes to love, she’s about to find herself lost at sea.

Lauren Morrill - Vakrandi ​a végzettel
Julia ​semmit nem bíz a véletlenre, köszöni szépen. Pláne nem egy tanulmányi kirándulást Londonba, ami a hozzá hasonló Shakespeare-rajongóknak az ígéret földje! Csakhogy a kiszámítható terveknek lőttek, amikor idegesítő osztálytársával, a szabályokat hírből sem ismerő Jasonnel kerül párba az út idejére. Már első este egy vad buliban találják magukat, és másnap Julia flörtölős SMS-eket kap egy ismeretlen számról! A lány persze kíváncsi a rejtélyes imádóra, ezért alkut köt az ördöggel (izé… Jasonnel), aki segít kideríteni, ki küldi az üzeneteket, ha Julia hajlandó végre lazítani egy kicsit. A kalandos hajsza során a lány sok mindent megtanul, ami nem szerepel (kismillió) útikönyvében − például, hogy semmi nem lepi meg annyira az embert, mint az igaz szerelem.

Lauren Morrill - Being ​Sloane Jacobs
Meet ​Sloane Emily Jacobs: a seriously stressed-out figure-skater from Washington, D.C., who choked during junior nationals and isn’t sure she’s ready for a comeback. What she does know is that she’d give anything to escape the mass of misery that is her life. Now meet Sloane Devon Jacobs, a spunky ice hockey player from Philly who’s been suspended from her team for too many aggressive hip checks. Her punishment? Hockey camp, now, when she’s playing the worst she’s ever played. If she messes up? Her life will be over. When the two Sloanes meet by chance in Montreal and decide to trade places for the summer, each girl thinks she’s the lucky one: no strangers to judge or laugh at Sloane Emily, no scouts expecting Sloane Devon to be a hero. But it didn’t occur to Sloane E. that while avoiding sequins and axels she might meet a hockey hottie—and Sloane D. never expected to run into a familiar (and very good-looking) face from home. It’s not long before the Sloanes discover that convincing people you’re someone else might be more difficult than being yourself.
