The Day Beforeby Lisa Schroeder
Thursday, August 14, 2014 07:00 PM
Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Beaverton, OR
Join us for an evening of young adult fiction featuring a panel discussion with five authors. The sequel to the action-packed Reboot, Amy Tintera's Rebel (Harper Teen) is a can't-miss thrill ride, perfect for fans of James Patterson, Veronica Roth, and Marie Lu. Mila 2.0: Renegade (Katherine Tegen Books), the suspenseful, heart-wrenching follow-up to Debra Driza's Mila 2.0, will leave readers racing to turn the last page. Kasie West's On the Fence (Harper Teen) is a sweet and satisfying read about finding yourself and finding love where you least expect it. Whirlwind romance and breathtaking action continues in Shannon Messenger's Let the Storm Break (Simon Pulse), the sequel to Let the Sky Fall. In Lisa Schroeder's The Bridge from Me to You (Point), new girl Lauren and football hero Colby come together, fall apart, and build something stronger than either of them thought possible. This panel discussion will be moderated by Novel Novice.
Synopses & Reviews
Amber's life is spinning out of control. All she wants is to turn up the volume on her iPod until all of the demands of family and friends fade away. So she sneaks off to the beach to spend a day by herself.
Then Amber meets Cade. Their attraction is instant, and Amber can tell he's also looking for an escape. Together they decide to share a perfect day: no pasts, no fears, no regrets.
The more time that Amber spends with Cade, the more she's drawn to him. And the more she's troubled by his darkness. Because Cade's not just living in the now — he's living each moment like it's his last.
"The Day Before is lyrical, vivid, and poignant. Like hidden gems that sparkle in the sand, each verse tells its own story; a heartfelt reminder that life's treasures — friendship, love, and compassion — are often discovered when we least expect them." Sarah Ockler, bestselling author of Fixing Delilah and Twenty Boy Summer
Sixteen-year-old Amber, hoping to spend one perfect day alone at the beach before her world is turned upside down, meets and feels a strong connection to Cade, who is looking for his own escape, for a very different reason.
One moment can change everything.
Amber’s life is spinning out of control. All she wants is to turn up the volume on her iPod until all of the demands of family and friends fade away. So she sneaks off to the beach to spend a day by herself.
Then Amber meets Cade. Their attraction is instant, and Amber can tell he’s also looking for an escape. Together they decide to share a perfect day: no pasts, no fears, no regrets.
The more time that Amber spends with Cade, the more she’s drawn to him. And the more she’s troubled by his darkness. Because Cade’s not just living in the now—he’s living each moment like it’s his last.
One day. Just one day. Amber’s life is about to be turned upside down, and all she needs is one perfect day. Because tomorrow? Tomorrow she has to fly across the country to live with parents she’s never known. Amber was switched at birth, but the mistake was only recently discovered, and the courts have decided that Amber will split each year between her family in Oregon and her birth parents in Texas. At sixteen, it’s a hard reality for Amber to face.
So she escapes to the beach, where she meets a mysterious boy. Cade is dark and intense—and their chemistry is undeniable. As the two spend the day together, Amber discovers that Cade is also looking for escape. A very different escape—for a very different reason.
