Full Description

Jane, a superstitious fangirl, takes an anonymous babysitting job to avoid an unpaid internship with her college-obsessed mom. The only problem? She's babysitting the siblings of her childhood friend and new crush, Teo.

Teo doesn't dislike Jane, but his best friend Ravi hates her, and is determined to keep them apart. So Teo's pretty sure his plans for a peaceful summer are shot. His only hope is that his intermittent search for his birth father will finally pan out and he'll find a new, less awkward home. Meanwhile, at Jane's house, her sister Margo wants to come out as bisexual, but she's terrified of how her parents will react.

In a summer filled with secrets and questions, even Jane's Magic 8 ball can't give them clear answers, but Signs Point to Yes.

Excerpt

Jane searched for a subject change. "I'm average at best. And they're all like—" The boom of the first firework swallowed up the rest of her sentence.

"To be continued," Jane said. Teo smiled, and lay back with his arms under his head. Jane mirrored him.

"This would be extremely romantic with the right person," Jane said.

"And I'm the wrong person?" Teo asked with a devilish grin.

"What? No! I didn't mean it like that. I just meant. Well, I didn't even really mean to say it out loud."

Jane closed her eyes and imagined what a different kind of girl would do in this moment, the kind of girl who was confident and didn't feel the need to consult a fortune telling toy before making any decisions. She let out a deep breath and opened her eyes to find Teo watching her.

He grinned sheepishly.

Grins like that should be illegal, Jane thought.

Read Excerpt

Praise

“Fun and original, Hall's sophomore novel has an authentic teen voice with plenty of charm. A standout addition to library shelves.” —School Library Journal

“Funny and charming, all signs point to yes that this sweet story of love—whether in romance, friendship, or family—has something for everyone.” —Booklist

"Another layered, super-charming romance from the author of A Little Something Different." —Melissa Albert, BNTeen blog

"Hall does a great job of creating a budding romance while interjecting bits of comedy throughout the novel." —VOYA

"An adorable, or adorkable as the summary calls it, young adult contemporary romance. If it is starting to get cooler where you are, Signs Point to Yes is the perfect book to have you feeling like you are back in summer. Or, if you are like me, it is a great book for any time of the year." ―Book Briefs

"A cute, summery read with a lovable main character and a humorous rivalry. I definitely recommend this book to fans of Morgan Matson/Katie Finn, as it has that same light and adorable summer feel. This is the perfect book to bring back summer!" —The Candid Cover

Really enjoyed this book after reading A Little Something DIfferent. I went out and bought Sandy's second novel. I really enjoy her character development.

Just read this in a day and it was so fantastic. Bought my mum a copy for Christmas so we can chat about it as we both love YA. Absolutely loved all the characters. Thanks for writing such a lovely book that I will no doubt be reading again and again and again soon enough.

Part of me regrets reading the excerpt now because I'm so impatient to read the rest! It's already drawn me in, just like A Little Something different, and I'm really excited to read it when it comes out.

*Tom Haverford "Nooooo!"* I saw this on the homepage and was ready to dive right in! Still, no doubt this is going right to the top of my TBR shelf!

I love that you bring up Tom Haverford because Aziz Ansari's voice had a big influence on the character Ravi in this book. Like I could HEAR him saying all the lines. Thanks for your support!
