Adam Sass, in conversation with James Acker, discusses Cursed Boys and Broken Hearts

Adam Sass

A swoony contemporary romance from Adam Sass following a boy who is cursed to doom any romantic relationship--and the summer that changes everything.

Grant Rossi is never getting a happily-ever-after.

Ever since he was a kid and made a wish on his family's iconic Wishing Rose, his romantic relationships have been cursed to end. Following his most recent (and extremely public) dumping, Grant is languishing in a hot Chicago summer, abandoning his beloved design projects to sink back into depression. But when his family suggests spending the summer helping his aunt and uncle refurbish their beautiful but rundown B&B and vineyard--the home of the Wishing Rose that changed everything for him--Grant decides to accept. Maybe he can finally find a way to recover his creative spark...and break his curse.

But things at the vineyard are not what Grant expects. The place is in almost total disrepair, and--even worse--the person his relatives hired to help is his former childhood crush, Ben--the first boy who broke his heart.

As their chemistry sparks and the summer heats up, the wedge between them can't be ignored. But while they race to restore the B&B in time for the beloved local rose festival, grumpy but lovable Ben starts to break through Grant's carefully crafted defenses. Can Grant find a way to overcome his curse and open his heart, even when it's broken? (Viking Books for Young Readers)
