Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Young Adult), by Sorcha
A boy and a girl, betrothed since birth. Except they hate each other and, well, perhaps the boy likes his betrotheds brother a little more than he should, and perhaps the girl feels lightheaded whenever a certain female knight looks in her direction. Fast-paced and fun, Gwen and Art are not in Love combines an eclectic cast of loveable characters, a delightfully witty prose and a punch-in-the-gut plotline. Its a feel-good, bright and cheerful novel, with deeper underlying themes of familial duty, human connection and destiny.
'Exactly what I needed right now – a delightful, heartwarming, hilarious historical romp, overflowing with queer panic and terrible jokes. I loved it' - ALICE OSEMAN, bestselling author of HEARTSTOPPER'Fun and genuinely funny, with lovely friendships and first-rate dialogue. Gwen and Art may not be in love, but I fell for both of them' - RAINBOW ROWELL, #New York Times bestselling author of the SIMON SNOW trilogy* Winner of the Books Are My Bag Readers' Award for Young Adult Fiction ** Shortlisted for the Café Nero Children's Fiction Award ** Instant New York Times Bestseller*_______________Gwen, the quick-witted Princess of England, and Arthur, future lord and general gadabout, have been betrothed since birth. Unfortunately, the only thing they can agree on is that they hate each other. When Gwen catches Art kissing a boy and Art discovers where Gwen hides her diary (complete with racy entries about Bridget Leclair, the kingdom's only female knight), they become reluctant allies. By pretending to fall for each other, their mutual protection will be assured. But how long can they keep up the ruse? With Gwen growing closer to Bridget, and Art becoming unaccountably fond of Gabriel, Gwen's infuriatingly serious, bookish brother, the path to true love is looking far from straight …_______________'A total rollicking delight … Lex Croucher is one of my favourite romcom authors, and they should be yours too' - CASEY MCQUISTON, #1 New York Times bestselling author of I KISSED SHARA WHEELER and RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE'Congrats to Gwen and Arthur on their permanent acquisition of my ENTIRE heart. Suffice it to say that I loved this book to a degree that’s slightly ridiculous' - BECKY ALBERTALLI, bestselling author of SIMON VS. THE HOMOSAPIENS AGENDA
