Charming as a Verb

Bookseller Recommendation

If you enjoyed The Sun is Also a Star, then you’ll love Charming as a Verb.

“This might be my favorite book of the year! I loved the original story after reading an advanced copy a few months ago but like the audio even better. Narrator James Fouhey’s voice changes and inflections are spot-on in bringing all of Ben PhiIippe’s heartwarming characters to life. A well-crafted story of contemporary teen issues (family, friendships, relationships, self-identity, social and parental pressures) with plenty of laugh-out-loud humor makes this book a winner.”

Description

From the award-winning author of The Field Guide to the North American Teenager comes a whip-smart and layered romantic comedy. Perfect for fans of Nicola Yoon and Jenny Han. 

Henri “Halti” Haltiwanger can charm just about anyone. He is a star debater and popular student at the prestigious FATE academy, the dutiful first-generation Haitian son, and the trusted dog walker for his wealthy New York City neighbors. But his easy smiles mask a burning ambition to attend his dream college, Columbia University.

There is only one person who seems immune to Henri’s charms: his “intense” classmate and neighbor Corinne Troy. When she uncovers Henri’s less-than-honest dog-walking scheme, she blackmails him into helping her change her image at school. Henri agrees, seeing a potential upside for himself.

Soon what started as a mutual hustle turns into something more surprising than either of them ever bargained for. . . .

This is a sharply funny and insightful novel about the countless hustles we have to keep from doing the hardest thing: being ourselves.
