Publisher's Summary

You've never seen a nose as big as mine.
In this modern love story, Cyrano de Bergerac is reinvented as a brilliant and funny seventeen-year-old ...girl.
A tennis champion, straight-A student, and editor of the school paper, Cyrie Bergerac has learned to live with her (ahem) peculiar proboscis. And she's got an armory of witty retorts for every schnozz joke that comes her way. But despite her talents and charm, Cyrie is convinced that no guy - hot or otherwise - would deem her crushworthy.
Certainly not Eddie 'Rox' Roxanninoff, who's gorgeous, smart, and genuinely nice to boot! There's someone else smitten with Rox, too. It's Leyla, Cyrie's pretty yet tongue-tied best friend. Helping Leyla seduce Rox through email provides a wonderful way for Cyrie to express her true feelings. But watching her crush hook up with Leyla may be more than she can take.
Will Cyrie find the strength to risk it all - nose be damned - and confess her love? In this funny and poignant spin on a classic, popular YA author Emily Franklin explores the age-old theme of 'true beauty' with humor and piercing perception.

painful narrator

Would you try another book from Emily Franklin and/or Ashley Litz?

Emily Franklin - sure. Ashley Litz - NO WAY

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ashley Litz?

Anyone! This narrator is painfully squeaky for a character who is supposed to be a high school senior. Ashley also pronounces words awkwardly and puts emphasis on the wrong syllable frequently. The story might be okay, but this is hard to listen to….
