“You’ll fall in love with this genuine young heroine.” — Best Health
After two drama-filled weeks in Manhattan, Pippa Greene is back. Despite a romantic reunion with 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 post-high-school life of bands, shows, and new friends than in their relationship. Will it survive?
Written with the same humour and heart that made Chantel Guertin’s first two Pippa Greene novels instant favourites, Leading Lines offers a fresh and charming perspective on friendships, family, and first love.
Chantel Guertin is the bestselling author of two adult novels — Stuck in Downward Dog and Love Struck — and the YA novels The Rule of Thirds and Depth of Field. She’s a beauty expert on The Marilyn Denis Show and editor-at-large at The Kit. Her writing has been published widely. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.

"Effortless, light and rewarding, this is a series that readers could grasp starting with this third book, but it’s worthwhile to get all three and get to know the bubbly, endearing, lovable Pippa from the beginning." — Globe and Mail
“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 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.

“I was hooked on this series from the beginning of The Rule of Thirds and only got sucked in deeper with each book! What resonated with me most from Leading Lines was the progress and growth seen in Pippa . . . I like seeing her make strides to define herself outside of boys and do things that make her happy while actually enjoying those things.” — Brains, Books, and Brawn
“If you’re reading this right now, go add this book (and the previous two books in the series) to your TBR! All in all, Leading Lines was another enjoyable instalment to the Pippa Greene series.” — The Book Bratz
“Teens will readily relate with Pippa who is an engaging, complex 16-year-old. . . Readers might not always like Pippa or agree with her choices, but everything she says and does rings completely true. Readers will experience all the joys, heartbreak and discoveries of the teenage years as Pippa continues her journey to adulthood. With this series, Guertin has written another novel with a plot that is believable but not predictable, a rare treat in young adult fiction.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials
