Macy Sorensen is settling into an ambitious if emotionally tepid routine: work hard as a new pediatrics resident, plan her wedding to an older, financially secure man, keep her head down and heart tucked away. But when she runs into Elliot Petropoulos - the first and only love of her life - the careful bubble she’s constructed begins to dissolve.
Love and Other Words is both a love story and a coming of age novel. It’s populated by the loveable characters and sprinkled with the quirk and wit that fans have come to expect from Christina Lauren, but it also draws an intimate picture of both Macy and Elliot as we see them grow from teens to adults. Macy in particular does not have an easy childhood after losing her mother at a young age. Erin Mallon’s narration had me feeling both the highs and the lows twice over as Elliot and Macy become neighbors, then friends, and then something more in their teen years. Their relationship seems to be of storybook perfection, but something comes between them to separate them for 11 years. Told in alternating timelines, the book had me unable to stop listening with the growing tension and the need to know: What could have possibly separated them all those years ago?

"Oh my heart, I loved this book so freaking much. Every single thing about it gave me deliciously giddy feels. My heart smiled the entire time, except in those moments when it ached and when it cried. The romance in Getting Schooled is absolutely EVERYTHING. It's so heartwarming, so satisfying, so joyful. It made me want to pump my fist in the air as I read. But there's so much more to this story than just the central romance between a football coach and the newly hired drama teacher who also happens to be his high school sweetheart. It's a heartfelt story of what it means to coach and educate, to guide a future generation and instill confidence in them while they're struggling with teenage angst and social issues. It's about family and friendship and the humor and heartache that connects all of them. And, of course, it's an unforgettable love story between characters that I just adored…"
