Emme is a sophomore in high school who starts dating, Brendon Agretti, the popular senior who happens to be a senator's son and well-known for his good looks. Emme feels out of her comfort zone in Brendon's world and it doesn't help that his picture perfect ex, Lauren, seems determined to get back into his life, along with every other girl who wants to be the future Mrs. Agretti. Emme is already conflicted due to the fact her last boyfriend cheated on her and her whole world is off kilter with her family issues. Life suddenly seems easier keeping Brendon away and relying on her crystals and horoscopes to guide her. Emme soon starts to realize she needs to focus less on the stars and more on her senses. Can Emme get over her insecurities and make her relationship work? Life sure is complicated when you're dating the it guy.

Dating the IT guy, is written by Krysten Lindsay Hager in first person POV following the main character, Emme. The story is about the challenges of dating the most popular guy in a small town. It's hard enough without the history of a cheating boyfriend and major self-esteem issues. Combine them all, and you get an amazing story. I loved how no matter how many times they got in a fight, or how many times they tried to make one another jealous, they still kept on coming back to each other. I also liked how the characters helped each other through a lot of family issues. And even when you, as a reader, begin doubt their (Emme and Brandon) relationship, they pulled through.

Krysten Lindsay Hager writes about friendship, self-esteem, fitting in, frenemies, crushes, fame, first loves, and values. She is the author of True Colors, Best Friends...Forever?, Next Door to a Star, Landry in Like, and Competing with the Star (The Star Series: Book 2). Her work has been featured in USA Today, The Flint Journal, The Grand Haven Tribune, The Bellbrook Times and on Living Dayton.
