    10 Blind Dates
    Would you let your family play matchmaker to help you get over a broken heart?

    Ashley Elston's 10 Blind Dates is the perfect Christmas treat: delicious, warm, funny, escapist YA romance.

    Sophie wants one thing for Christmas - time with her boyfriend Griffin. So when her parents plan a trip to visit her sister over the holiday, Sophie begs to be left behind with her grandparents and her boisterous extended family. But she and Griffin break up and she's devastated.

    Sophie's grandmother, hating to see her so upset, devises a (not so) brilliant plan - to distract her from heartbreak. Over the next ten days, different family members will set Sophie up on ten different blind dates, which doesn't sound awkward at all . . .

    When Griffin turns up unexpectedly, it makes Sophie more confused than ever. Because maybe, just maybe, she's started to have feelings for someone else. Someone who is definitely not available.

    Film rights have been bought by Matt Kaplan and Ace Antertainment, the team behind hit Netflix YA movie Jenny Han's To All The Boys I've Loved Before. Everything Everything screenwriter J. Mills Goodloe is attached to adapt the screenplay.
