Boys Like You

Young Adult Fiction

One mistake.

And everything changes.

For Monroe Blackwell, one small mistake has torn her family apart –leaving her empty and broken. There’s a hole in her heart that nothing can fill. That no one can fill. And a summer in Louisiana with her Grandma isn’t going to change that…

Nathan Everets knows heartache first-hand when a car accident leaves his best friend in a coma. And it’s his fault. He should be the one lying in the hospital. The one who will never play guitar again. He doesn’t deserve forgiveness, and a court-appointed job at the Blackwell B&B isn’t going to change that…

Captivating and hopeful, this achingly poignant novel brings together two lost souls struggling with grief and guilt – looking for acceptance, so they can find forgiveness.


“The classic miscommunications, the emotional pushing and pulling, the “will she?” and “won’t he?” of the destined-to-be-in-love. Readers of Miranda Kenneally, Jenny Han, and Susane Colasanti will enjoy Stone.”


“The story handles challenging subjects like sex, drunk driving, and faith after tragedy in a sensitive and age-appropriate way…just what readers need.”

– School Library Journal

“A contemporary romance-with-a-conscience… Stone writes it with confidence and style. Hot girl from out of town; hunky, vulnerable hero; alcohol-troubled ex-girlfriend; conflict and regrets…there’s nothing wrong—and a good deal that is right—with the romance formula when it’s handled this well.”

– Kirkus

“The story of family, first love, and forgiveness.  I loved it!

– Miranda Kenneally, author of Catching Jordan

“Fast paced with characters you care about, BOYS LIKE YOU by Juliana Stone is a delicious emotional read.”

– Monica Murphy, USA Today & New York Times bestselling author

“More than a love story, Boys Like You is a redemptive remedy for despair that will bring you to tears.”

– K.A. Barson, author of 45 Pounds (more or less)

“Monroe and Nate have amazing chemistry and tons of layers to their characters. Super emotional, sexy, heartwrenching… I LOVED IT.”

– Michelle Rowen, bestselling author
