A romantic comedy that's "a good choice for fans of John Green" (Booklist) about high school, heartbreak, and having all the answers.
What if the secrets of dating and love were revealed in one simple formula? That's the tantalizing proposition high school senior Shane Chambliss offers the hopeless and hapless guys who come to him for relationship advice.
After the girl of his dreams breaks his heart, Shane devises a mysterious formula called the Galgorithm and establishes himself as the resident dating guru at Kingsview High School. But his attempts to master the art of romance go outrageously awry.
As Shane tries to navigate the ensuing drama, he must follow his heart, abandon all the rules, and ignore his own advice in a quest for true love. What he discovers, no formula could ever predict...

Shane Chambliss has cracked the code on high-school girls. He takes this formula and helps the nerds get the girls.With his deny until you die agreement with his clients he operates in anonymity. Everything is going great until the formula is outed by the school newspaper. When Shane’s love life changes into something unexpected, he is left question all aspects of the “Galgorithm.”

In an Oyster Shell –  A light hearted witty romance that will have you laughing out loud again and again.

The Pearls – I have been looking forward to reading this book for a while. I am glad to report that it was well worth the wait and I was not disappointed in the slightest. The witty prose of this book will make it so you don’t want to put it down. The writing was pristine. There was a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor.

The concept is what initially drew me to this book. A high-school boy has figured out a formula on how to woo any high-school girl. It’s a story that’s too tempting not to read. I liked how the concept played out and how everything was resolved in the end.

The multiple romances in this book were cute. Each one played out a little differently adding diversity to the plot. I like how each romance has unexpected results with each having its own struggles. It makes the romances more realistic which is not often done in a romance book.

The Sand – There was some inappropriate language, the MC was not always easy to relate to, and the narrative voice fell flat at times.
