{Book Blitz + Giveaway} Boy Swap by Kristina Springer

Boy Swap by Kristina Springer
Publication date: October 16th 2013
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult
Boy Swap: The secret to sisterly love and scholarly bliss.

Research shows that seven out of ten girl fights are over a guy. The Boy Swap Club fixes all that. In an effort to spread around male cuteness and minimize fights and backstabbing, they just share boyfriends. And Brooke Thomas, consummate band member, has been asked to join the super secret club because the president of the club has the hots for her guy.

Brooke doesn’t want to share her boyfriend. I mean, who does? But how can she say no? She, a second chair flutist in the school band, finds herself sitting between the Varsity Cheerleader Captain and the Homecoming Queen at the first meeting. Her friends will never believe this in a million years. Too bad she can’t tell them. But she knows. This one event can change her entire life. What if she becomes actual friends with one of these girls? It might be worth sharing her boyfriend.

Besides, he’ll always love her best, right?

{Interview with Kristina Springer}

The main character in BOY SWAP is a self-appointed “band nerd.” Were you a band nerd in high school?

Totally. I even played the flute like Brooke. But that’s where the similarities end. Brooke is much stronger than I was in high school. And she’s got a great-looking boyfriend that other girls are envious of. I didn’t even date in high school.

What is your favorite scene in the book?

I had sooooo much fun writing this book and there are several scenes that pop out in my mind. My absolute favorite is the end though. It played out like a movie in my head. I love it!

This is your fifth published book. Do you have favorite?
I love ‘em all—they’re like kids. But I’ll always have a special spot for my first book, THE ESPRESSOLOGIST. A number of my faithful readers have told me that BOY SWAP is their fave.

What's next for you?

I’m currently working on a fun middle grade book and don’t want to jinx it by talking about it too much. It’s my first middle grade since MY FAKE BOYFRIEND IS BETTER THAN YOURS, which was a Scholastic bestseller, so I have a lot to live up to! My middle grade fans have been asking me for something new and I want to deliver. J MY FAKE BOYFRIEND IS BETTER THAN YOURS is also releasing in paperback later this year—12/31.

Any news on THE ESPRESSOLOGIST web series?

Last I heard Alloy Digital presented it at NewsFronts 2013 (


“Do you think if Jacob and I got married, our kids would be really musical? I mean, since we both are?” Lizzie asks with a far-off, daydream look on her face.
“Wow,” I say, resisting the urge to laugh, “you’ve been dating for what…four, five days? And you’re already talking marriage?”
“Shh!” she says, looking around to see if Jacob has come into the band room yet. It’s still ten minutes before first period band starts and Lizzie is sitting with me in the flute section chatting. “Don’t let anyone hear you say that. Jacob would freak. I’m not sure we’re even official. I think he has a bit of commitment phobia.”
“Seriously? You guys are making out like, every time I see you in the same room together. He’s definitely committed to taste testing your mouthwash.”
