Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gorgeous debut about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another

The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy, affectionate. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen-year-old Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. As the two fall fiercely in love, Jase's family makes Samantha one of their own. Then in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?

A dreamy summer read, full of characters who stay with you long after the story is over.

"A summer romance with depth." —The Boston Sunday Globe

"Fitzpatrick's excellent first novel movingly captures the intensity of first love." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"An almost perfect summer romance." —Kirkus Reviews

"On par with authors such as Sarah Dessen and Deb Caletti." —SLJ

Synopsis:

A New York Times bestseller

 

Expect the unexpected.

 

Macys got her whole summer carefully planned.

 

But her plans didnt include a job at Wish Catering. And they certainly didnt include Wes.

 

But Macy soon discovers that the things you expect least are sometimes the things you need most.

 

“Dessen gracefully balances comedy with tragedy and introduces a complex heroine worth getting to know.” —Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Macy's summer stretches before her, carefully planned and outlined. She will spend her days sitting at the library information desk. She will spend her evenings studying for the SATs. Spare time will be used to help her obsessive mother prepare for the big opening of the townhouse section of her luxury development.

But Macy's plans don't anticipate a surprising and chaotic job with Wish Catering, a motley crew of new friends, or…Wes. Tattooed, artistic, anything-but-expected Wes. He doesn't fit Macy's life at all—so why does she feel so comfortable with him? So…happy? What is it about him that makes her let down her guard and finally talk about how much she misses her father, who died before her eyes the year before?

This book was so good. I recommend everyone read it! it made me so happy, and made me laugh so hard sometimes, and yet at one point it also made me cry with despair at not being able to go into the story and fix the problem myself... I legit cried at one point. But despite that, this book was incredibly good and I came away from it having learned something about human nature, as I do with most books. Put this on your To-Read list now! You won't regret it!
