Hello all! I’m beyond excited to share with you the awesome cover for BETTER OFF FRIENDS* (coming February 25, 2014 – mark your calendars!).
AND! Here’s the description of the book (from Point/Scholastic):
For Macallan and Levi, it was friends at first sight. Everyone says guys and girls can’t be just friends, but these two are. They hang out after school, share tons of inside jokes, their families are super close, and Levi even starts dating one of Macallan’s friends. They are platonic and happy that way.
Eventually they realize they’re best friends — which wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t keep getting in each other’s way. Guys won’t ask Macallan out because they think she’s with Levi, and Levi spends too much time joking around with Macallan, and maybe not enough time with his date. They can’t help but wonder . . . are they more than friends or are they better off without making it even more complicated?
From romantic comedy superstar Elizabeth Eulberg comes a fresh, fun examination of a question for the ages: Can guys and girls ever really be just friends? Or are they always one fight away from not speaking again — and one kiss away from true love?
I CANNOT wait for this book to be out. While I’m proud of all my books, I’m especially proud of this one. My editor thinks it’s my best yet, and I kinda trust his opinion, being David Levithan and all…
And to my lovely foreign language readers, I’m happy to report that I’ve already signed contracts for BETTER OFF FRIENDS to come out in GERMAN and SPANISH, with hopefully more languages to follow. While I don’t have any information on when the book will be out in Germany, Spain, and Latin America, I promise to share when I do!
Oh, and I am going to require you all to now only refer to me as “romantic comedy superstar Elizabeth Eulberg” – Scholastic has declared it and it shall be so. Just like Sir Paul McCartney or Dame Helen Mirren. KIDDING!
I hope everybody enjoys the last dwindling days of summer (for those who haven’t gone back to school yet). I’m sending you all lots of love. Can it be February 25th already?
*I updated this post to show the new, final cover – hope you love it!
