Wishlist Wednesday #20

For Macallan and Levi, it was friends at first sight. Everyone says guys and girls can’t be just friends, but these two are. They hang out after school, share tons of inside jokes, their families are super close, and Levi even starts dating one of Macallan’s friends. They are platonic and happy that way.

Eventually they realize they’re best friends — which wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t keep getting in each other’s way. Guys won’t ask Macallan out because they think she’s with Levi, and Levi spends too much time joking around with Macallan, and maybe not enough time with his date. They can’t help but wonder . . . are they more than friends or are they better off without making it even more complicated?

From romantic comedy superstar Elizabeth Eulberg comes a fresh, fun examination of a question for the ages: Can guys and girls ever really be just friends? Or are they always one fight away from not speaking again — and one kiss away from true love?

Why I want: 

This concept has been done before, but I don't think Eulberg will be doing it in the same way. I think I'm already in love with the story and I haven't even read it. The idea of two people from opposite genders can be just friends best friends is something I am enthralled with. Of course, I can see this going two ways: 
  • Actually leaving their friendship platonic, but making me ship them together SO MUCH.
  • Pushing their friendship into romance and predictability and making me mourn for the potential of the story. 
Anyways, I really can't wait to read this one. Also, the cover is cute. Who doesn't love swings?

What are you wishing for this Wednesday?
