Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.

Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo's sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.

Emaline's mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he's convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?

Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she's going?

Sarah Dessen's devoted fans will welcome this story of romance, yearning, and, finally, empowerment. It could only happen in the summer.


My Thoughts:
Sarah Dessen was one of my absolute favorite authors in middle school, and I am beyond excited that she is coming out with a new book! This new book looks great, and I'm sure that she won't disappoint!

What are you waiting for this week? Let me know in the comments!

  2. I don't read many contemps either, but I really like Sarah Dessen and have Dreamlands and Just Listen sitting on my shelf that I need to get to!

  3. *PHEW* Thank goodness I'm not the only blogger who hasn't read this one! It feels like that, right? I've requested it on NetGalley and Edelweiss and got rejected BOTH TIMES. Booo...

    I don't read too many contemporaries either (though lately... that statement probably changed!), but I do want to read this one! I've never read anything by Sarah Dessen before though O_O

    Hope you get to read this one early! :D

    Check out my WoW post!

  4. This sounds really good. I love reading contemporaries.

  5. Would you believe I have never read a book by Sarah Dessen? I should really remedy that. I am such a bad YA blogger!
