Music Match Monday (2)

Music Match Monday is a meme created by myself, the Authoress. All you do is take the book you're reading now -- or maybe the last book you read -- and find a song that matches it. Like its theme song. And share it with us!

Book: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
Song: Ours by Taylor Swift



Why:  Though this song doesn't capture the edginess of the book, I think the lyrics really grab the romance.  Lines like "they'll judge it like they know about me and you" relate almost directly to the story. The two main characters, Alex and Brittany, have to overcome a lot of prejudice.  So despite it's sappiness, this song always reminds me of that book.
