JOYRIDE BY ANNA BANKS
A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.
It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.
Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber's mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.
All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

I adore Anna Banks. She is all kinds of awesome to follow on twitter. And I did enjoy her previous books. <3 Which is why I'm excited about Joyride. I don't read a lot of this genre, but I think this book sounds pretty amazing :D And so I cannot wait to read it. <3 The cover is awesome. And I love the summary too. I'm crossing my fingers that I will love this book to pieces in June next year. I'm excited for it.
