Fifteen contemporary YA books that make fabulous valentines

One title on Dahlia Adler's list of fifteen contemporary YA books that make fabulous valentines, as shared on the B & N Teen Blog:
The New Guy (and Other Senior Year Distractions), by Amy Spalding

Jules has got her eyes on the prize this year, and that prize is the position of editor of the school newspaper. She doesn’t have her sights set on Alex, the new guy with an old past—as a boy bander, no less. She’s definitely not looking to fall for him. But most of all, when she does, she definitely doesn’t expect him to join the band of the school’s biggest betrayers, in the form of a rival campus news organization. To Jules, this is an unforgivable act of war, but when it comes down to her pride or her heart, something’s gotta give. Per usual, Spalding’s newest is laugh-out-loud funny with fabulous parents, but I think this may be my very favorite of hers.
