Ellie’s Sweet 16 is a summer of firsts.
First serial-killing stalker…?
Hockey-obsessed tomboy Eleanor Westley has never been the object of a guy’s affection before. So when the hottest boy she’s ever seen moves in across the street and starts treating her like she’s the center of his universe, naturally she’s going to be a little skeptical. But everything starts to make sense when girls who look just like Ellie start dying all around the city. Obviously the new guy is the killer, and of course he only likes her because he wants to slice her into tiny pieces. Right?
The more Ellie gets to know Seth the more she’s convinced he’s a psychopathic killer. Problem is, he’s the sweetest psychopathic killer she’s ever met. Not to mention he’s brutally hot. No matter how hard she tries, she can’t help but fall for him.
From the best selling young adult author of The Avery Shaw Experiment and V is for Virgin, comes a lovable, quirky, and wildly funny coming of age contemporary romance about a girl, her strange but hot neighbor, and the crazy summer that changed both of their lives forever.
Will Ellie find true love?
Or will her summer of firsts turn out to be a summer of lasts?

the most intense eyes I’d ever seen. And, get this. He was holding a Taser.
“Hi, Ellie,” he said in a strong, deep voice. “It’s nice to meet you.”
of course I screamed. The psycho just killed the Haskins’ dog. I screamed loud
enough that the J’s probably heard me all the way at camp. Then I tried my best
to push the new kid away from me, but he was too strong. I would have freaked
out that such a hot boy was touching me, except I was too busy freaking out
that such a hot boy was touching me! Pinning me to the ground, actually.

off his shirt.

what was I supposed to do? The guy comes out of nowhere, kills a dog, pins me
to the ground, and takes his clothes off? Oh yeah, and he knows my name. How
does he know my name?

finally dawned on me how much pain I was in.
