Synopsis: High school romance is tough—even for a bona fide love goddess. Can Cupid succeed as a mortal matchmaker?

When Eros (aka Cupid) is expelled from Olympus for defying Zeus after falling in love with Orion, she is banished to what she believes to be hell. We call it New Jersey. If she ever wants to go back to the comforts of her old life, she will have to find love for three couples—without using her powers.

Eros, now calling herself True, immediately identifies her first project in Charlie and believes finding him love will be a piece of cake. Charlie is new at school and eager to break out of his old image of band geek, so it’s lucky for him when he falls in with the right crowd on his first day. But music is still his passion. That is, until he meets Katrina...

Katrina is floundering after the death of her father and takes refuge with a boy who, while not entirely supportive, will be there when she needs him, unlike her mother. Too bad True thinks any girl Charlie talks to is perfect for him. Can she get out of her own way and help Charlie and Katrina connect, or will she be stuck in New Jersey forever?

Guest Post - TRUE OLYMPIA’S TOP TEN RULES FOR SURVIVING YOUR FIRST DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL

Wear comfortable shoes. 
There’s a lot of walking involved. More than you’d think. And blisters are not only unattractive, but super painful. I recommend sneakers and thick socks. Or flat sandals. Unless you’re the type of person who drops a lot of books. Because ow.

Do not steal from other people’s plates.
Mortals really do not like it when you do this. It’s as if you’ve tried to make off with their firstborn child. Even if you, say, bite into an apple that was on their plate, then offer to get them a new one (because there are literally dozens sitting in a basket mere yards away), they are less than pleased.

Do not hang out with the mean girls.
They’re even mean to their friends, and sometimes right to their faces. You don’t need any added stress on your first day. Stick to the nice ones.

Wear earplugs.
Teenaged mortals are loud. There’s a lot of shouting and screeching. If you have a low tolerance for sudden bursts of sound, earplugs are a must. Of course you should take them out when conversing with friends, attempting to connect with a possible love interest, or sitting in class.

Be prepared to be bored out of your mind.
Speaking of class, they seem to teach a lot of facts one should already know. Unless that’s just me. I have been around since the dawn of time.

Do not drink two bottles of wine the night before.
The results are tragic. And messy. And disgusting. Honestly, I don’t know how mortals walk around in these bodies all the time. The digestive system can simply turn on you without a moment’s warning.

If someone holds up a phone to take a picture of you, turn the other way.
I realize this is difficult advice to swallow, since the entire population of the Earth—even world leaders—seems to be obsessed with selfies, but sometimes, when someone’s taking a picture of you, it’s for insidious purposes. Don’t trust every phone-wielding person you know.

Don’t ask personal questions.
People tend to think you’re nosy. Or a stalker. Or just plain weird. Start out with something innocuous. Like “How was your summer?” Or “Where did you get that bag?” That one seems to go over well.

Try not to beat anyone up.
It might be difficult to avoid, considering the number of troglodytes lurking around every corner, but trust me, the resulting trip to the Vice Principal’s office is not fun.

Be yourself. 
Some of your classmates may laugh at you, but this is actually a good thing. It helps you to weed out the people who aren’t worth knowing. Some tips for finding the people who are worth knowing? They’re the ones who look you in the eye when you speak, who offer to share their food with you, who don’t say rude things to your face, and who give kind assistance if you’re lost, sick or picked on. Keep an eye out for these kind souls. They’re the keepers.
