Hot Boyz Ni-Ni Simone

Chance Kennedy always gets what she wants, even if she has to bend the truth to do it. She's set her sights on extremely fine and college-bound Ahmad King, and she will do anything to become his girl. There's only one problem: she didn't count on love entering the picture. Now she's scrabbling to make things right before the tiny white lie she's told to lock down her guy blows up in everyone's face. Now, the girl with everything may lose it all. . .

The Boy Trap Kelli London

Pretty, popular, and with mad potential, Gabrielle Newton is, hands down, the girl to know. But Gabrielle only has time for Tyler Scott, Lakeview High's hottest new athlete. He's the golden ticket to her dream: becoming an NBA star's pampered wife. But when Gabrielle plays Tyler one time too many, suddenly more than their relationship is on the line . . .

Simone (Upgrade U) and debut author London kick off a new series with a pair of drama-fueled stories about girls looking for love in all the wrong ways. Set in Atlanta, Simone's "Hot Boyz" follows the charmed life of 16-year-old Chance—the pampered daughter of a DA and a CEO—who prefers partying with her Thick-n-Juicy clique in edgier neighborhoods; when she meets college senior Ahmad, she pretends she is 18, which brings plenty of trouble. In London's "The Boy Trap," head cheerleader and schemer Gabrielle, aka "Easy Breezy," is dumped by a popular basketball player, only to latch on to a new one, Tyler, as she tries to fulfill her goal of snagging a future NBA player and living the easy life. Readers won't doubt that everything will work out in the end (even after Gabrielle nearly poisons Tyler after she tries to stimulate his libido with ginseng), which it does in very tidy, message-heavy endings. Opportunities for genuine growth get lost amid dialogue and characters that aim for authenticity but simply feel clichéd. Ages 14–up. (May)
