Play Me by Laura Ruby

In this day and age, it seems as though almost everyone is uploading their movies to YouTube - even fictional characters. Eddy, along with his two best friends, all aspiring filmmakers, and a feisty actress, create an online series which is entered in a big-time television contest. Eddy's always been serious about his movies, but not so serious about love.

That is, until Lucinda comes back into his life. They "dated" at camp when they were younger, but now, as high schoolers, things are different. Eddy has a reputation as a serial dater; Lucinda's a hard-core tennis player. This relationship might change Eddy's mind about dating, and about girls, and his filmmaking might lead him back to his absentee mom, an actress who left her family years ago to pursue her own career.

Though this book is not a direct sequel to Ruby's previous teen novel, Good Girls, it does take place in the same universe and mentions Audrey as the ex-girlfriend of one of Eddy's friends.

Play Me by Laura Ruby will be released in September 2008.
