One superior smirk from Michael Endicott convinces sixteen-year-old Georgia Barrett that the Devil wears Polo. His family may have founded the postcard-perfect New England town they live in, but Georgia’s not impressed. Even if he is smart, good looking, and can return Georgia’s barbs as deftly as he returns serves on his family’s tennis courts. After all, if Michael actually thinks she refuses to participate in lab dissections just to mess with his grade, he’s a little too sure that he’s the center of the universe. Could there be more to Michael Endicott than smirks and sarcasm? If Georgia can cut the snark long enough, she just might find out.

Snark and Circumstance is the first title in the Snark and Circumstance series of young adult romance novellas from Stephanie Wardrop. First title available 2.5.13.


Snark and Circumstance follows Georgia as she starts a new school year at Longbourne High School (a school she only arrived at the year before), and there at the very beginning of the day she has a run in with new student Michael Endicott.

Michael Endicott's family founded the town and Georgia is not at all impressed by this fact, nor by his looks, intelligence or supposed charm. Georgia's refusal to participate in lab dissections leads Michael to accuse her of messing with his grades.
Both can deal out the snark to one another, but can they learn to be real with each other for long enough to see beneath the surface?

I liked getting to know Georgia's characters, she's strong-willed, passionate and a little righteous, as well as more than a bit of an outisder. Georgia's ranting about being a vegan can be a bit much at times, though. It was nice seeing her make an effort to meet and be nice to others (even if her and Michael started out on the wrong foot).

Michael seems snobby and self-important to begin with but he starts to seem like a much nicer person as the story progresses.
The sarcastic and snarky banter between the two is amusing, despite the fact that you sometimes want to smack them over the head for some of their silly misunderstandings.
I loved the ending, it shows great promise for the next novella.

A nice short read that was quick to get through and was quite enjoyable, definitely reading the next installment in this series: Charm and Consequence.

I rate SNARK AND CIRCUMSTANCE Four out of Five!!
