Scarlet Bridge is beautiful, intelligent, and ambitious. In her final year of high school, she has five goals she wants to achieve before graduation, and she won’t let anything – or anyone – stand in her way. Not even everyone’s favorite golden boy, Levi Henare.

Levi has it all – good looks, quick wit, and he is a rugby prodigy. And nothing gives him more pleasure than getting on Scarlet’s every last nerve.

When Scarlet accidentally dials Levi’s phone number, a chain of events that neither of them expected is set into motion.

Thrown together by a twist of fate, will Levi and Scarlet overcome the challenges of their final year at school, their mutual dislike of each other, and their own personal demons to successfully graduate?

Hasnita Kiran Singh is a twenty-one-year-old living in Auckland, New Zealand. As a university student, she spends most of her time procrastinating. As an Optical Assistant, she’ll do everything to convince you to get glasses. When she’s not writing (which is unfortunately too often), she can be found baking or trying out new restaurants. She loves her friends, being on time, and chocolate fondants as much as she loves reading. She is a proud feminist, typically sleep deprived, and a lover of the stars.

- What is the most romantic thing someone has done for you?

I must admit, I spent a while thinking about this one. Simply because I have the sweetest boyfriend in the world, and he really does go out of his way to spoil me. So, I’m going to cheat a little and share two moments instead of one.

The first thing, funnily enough, inspired a scene in Get You the Moon. My boyfriend and I were on a road trip. We visited the Blue Putaruru Springs, which as a side note, is absolutely beautiful. During the walk, we came across these huge rocks with quotes. Naturally, we sat down to admire the picturesque waters and meaningful words. In that perfect little moment, he (very smoothly) pulled out a white Pandora box. Nestled in the cushion sat a charm bracelet that I had been eyeing out for years. I’ve always wanted one, but the student life makes it hard to justify splurging on such a pricey bracelet. Even though I hadn’t spoken of the details, he selected the exact one I wanted and the charms I had always dreamt about. Beyond the setting and the bracelet, the most romantic thing for me was that he had been listening, paying attention, and he knew me well enough to know what I would’ve loved. If you pick up Get You the Moon, you’ll find a very similar scene between Levi and Scarlet, which amplifies the entire point of the book – that you deserve someone who would get you the moon if they could.

The second moment is probably the cheesiest thing we’ve done together. One day I had mentioned how much I loved the stars and rasgulla. For those that don’t know, rasgulla is a very popular dessert in South Asia, which is basically semolina balls soaked in syrup. It’s everything good in the world, all in one bite. My boyfriend turned up to my flat with some rasgulla (which is pretty difficult to hunt down in Auckland at night) and whisked me away to a beach. And we sat in the sand, listening to the ocean and looked at the stars, all the while eating rasgulla. Is there anything more romantic than stargazing, the beach and the best dessert? I think not.

Just as I write that, I realise how some moments involve the beach and others involving stargazing in Get You the Moon. If you thought this post was cute, then you should read Get You the Moon.
