Donna from Bite My Books is starting a feature about Shitty YA Boy Toys, so I wanted to do my own with Wonderful YA Boys. The kinds of boys that make me think "I want my sons to turn out like that." I know there are several other memes out there that are similar (Book Boyfriend is one that comes to mind) but this comes more from a mom standpoint.
Last time I did Sean Griswold, today it's Cash Sterling from Shut Out by Kody Keplinger. (Read my review here). Cash was such a great guy and the perfect one for Lissa to fall for--especially compared to her first boyfriend, he was totally gross.
First off, Cash works in a library. A LIBRARY. Swoon. And he gives the money he makes to his parents to help out after his dad loses his job.
Secondly, he is a soccer player. Double Swoon.
He goes to parties to be the designated driver.
And he is, as described by a character in the book, "good looking, friendly and charming."
He's not afraid to tell a girl he thinks she's amazing. Love it when a guy can talk to a girl to her face, none of that texting crap!
He is just so sweet and earnest when he and Lissa first hang out at a party.
He is just mature and really secure with himself.
That is something I strive to instill in my sons all the time!
I just adore Cash! He is an AWESOME YA boy!
