SUTTER KEELY. HE’S the guy you want at your party. He’ll get everyone dancing. He’ ll get everyone in your parents’ pool. Okay, so he’s not exactly a shining academic star. He has no plans for college and will probably end up folding men’s shirts for a living. But there are plenty of ladies in town, and with the help of Dean Martin and Seagram’s V.O., life’s pretty fabuloso, actually.

Until the morning he wakes up on a random front lawn, and he meets Aimee. Aimee’s clueless. Aimee is a social disaster. Aimee needs help, and it’s up to the Sutterman to show Aimee a splendiferous time and then let her go forth and prosper. But Aimee’s not like other girls, and before long he’s in way over his head. For the first time in his life, he has the power to make a difference in someone else’s life—or ruin it forever.
My teaser, from p. 90 in the paperback:
"That's not the craziest part of it," I say. "The craziest part was when we decided to jump off the bridge."

"You jumped off a bridge?"

"Of course. And not some puny little bridge either. It was one of those big iron bridges with the framework that arches."
I'll be starting this today! I'm super excited the for movie, since it looks awesome, but I wanted to read the book first. So here I go! :)

I'll be visiting around and visiting back, so leave me links to your teasers! Have a lovely Tuesday!
