What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them... all at once? Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control in To All the Boys I've Loved Before (Simon & Schuster) — the heartfelt new novel from Jenny Han, author of The Summer I Turned Pretty series. In Morgan Matson's Since You've Been Gone (Simon & Schuster), quiet Emily's sociable and daring best friend, Sloane, has disappeared leaving nothing but a random list of bizarre tasks for her to complete, but with unexpected help from popular classmate Frank Porter, Emily gives them a try.

Publisher Comments:

Amy Curry thinks her life sucks. Her mom decides to move from California to Connecticut to start anew--just in time for Amy's senior year. Her dad recently died in a car accident. So Amy embarks on a road trip to escape from it all, driving cross-country from the home she's always known toward her new life. Joining Amy on the road trip is Roger, the son of Amy's mother's old friend. Amy hasn't seen him in years, and she is less than thrilled to be driving across the country with a guy she barely knows. So she's surprised to find that she is developing a crush on him. At the same time, she's coming to terms with her father's death and how to put her own life back together after the accident. Told in traditional narrative as well as scraps from the road--diner napkins, motel receipts, postcards--this is the story of one girl's journey to find herself.

About the Author

Morgan Matson received her MFA in Writing for Children from the New School.  A road-trip veteran, she has driven cross-country three times...so far. She currently lives in Venice, California.
