Announcing HOW TO SPEAK BOY by Tiana Smith!

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge sucker for romantic comedies. I mean, two thirds of my movie collection is rom-coms, and I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve watched While You Were Sleeping (which is still one of the best movies ever, don’t even try to change my mind).

One of my favorites is You’ve Got Mail, so I guess it should come as no surprise that it’d inspire my next book. I’m so happy to announce How to Speak Boy, my next book being published by Swoon Reads!

Quinn and Grayson have been fierce speech and debate rivals for years. They can't stand one another, either in competition or in real life.

But when their AP Government teacher returns their school assignments to the wrong cubbies, they begin exchanging anonymous notes without knowing who the other is.

Despite their differences, the two come together through their letters and find themselves unknowingly falling for the competition. Before the state tournament, the two of them need to figure out what they want out of life, or risk their own future happiness. After all, what’s the point of speech and debate if you can't say what's in your heart?

If you like the “enemies to lovers” trope in books, or if you like sweet and funny YA romances, then I hope you’ll pick up How to Speak Boy. And did I mention, it has the cutest cover ever? It was designed by Sophie Erb, and I’m absolutely in love with it.


I can’t wait for you all to read this book when it releases!
