“I absolutely flew through this novel.” — Books Etc.

“Genuine, relatable, it’s a ride you’ll want to go on again.” — Sukasa Reads

After two drama-filled weeks at photography camp in Manhattan, Pippa Greene is back. Despite a super-swoony and über-romantic reunion with her boyfriend, Dylan, she can’t seem to shake the emotional aftermath of New York. As she navigates parental drama at home and her charged dynamic with Ben Baxter at school, Pippa finds that Dylan is more wrapped up in his new post-high-school life of bands, shows, and groupies than in their relationship. Will it survive?

Written with the same humor and heart that made Chantel Guertin’s first two Pippa Greene novels — The Rule of Thirds and Depth of Field — instant favorites, Leading Lines offers a fresh and charming perspective on friendships, family, and first love.

Editorial Reviews


“Sharp dialogue, fully fleshed, interesting characters, and a believable plot add up to more than typical teen chicklit.” — Quill & Quire

“This third of the planned four-book Pippa Greene series is a manual in how romantic relationships can derail on the realities of everyday life … The style is lively and teens will sympathize with the misunderstandings and doubts that can fracture a relationship.” — VOYA Magazine

“I loved Leading Lines and firmly believe that fans of contemporary YA will love this series, just put aside everything for one afternoon and binge on the wonderful world of Pippa Greene.” — Booking it with Hayley G

“I absolutely flew through this novel. It’s not very long but the story still packs a punch that will keep you turning the pages until you’re done … Leading Lines was such a delightful addition to the series and I already can’t wait for the final book!” — Books Etc.

Leading Lines is a great follow-up to the previous two Pippa Greene novels and takes her story deeper into her personal life and into her genuine love for her family, her friends, and her photography … These novels remain relatable and sweet and are a great read for anyone looking for dynamic and honest relationships in their YA fiction.” — Read My Breath Away
