The Trouble With Flirting by Claire LaZebnik

Franny Pearson never dreamed she'd be attending the prestigious Mansfield Summer Theater Program. And she's not, exactly. She's working for her aunt, the resident costume designer. But sewing her fingers to the bone does give her an opportunity to spend time with her crush, Alex Braverman. If only he were as taken with the girl hemming his trousers as he is with his new leading lady.

I never thought the name Harry could be hot until I read The Trouble With Flirting by Claire La Zebnik. I was thoroughly addicted to this book once I started it. I haven't read a contemporary book in a while and have been so used to faster-paced genres so this was a perfect one to start off with. The plot had just enough drama--which is funny since they’re at a theater camp--without weighing me down and stressing me out. Harry was always cracking jokes and making me laugh, which was cool to see in a YA love interest because usually they're all smoldering and brooding. I think that the relationship in the book is fun and light, but also turns into something much more sweet because it's not insta-love. She doesn't have this huge crush on him right away like the other girls at camp; she actually is going after another guy. Harry truly earns her liking by being nice, funny and just a feel-good guy to be around. If romance and/or theater interest you, definitely check this book out. I loved everything about it.
