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.
Okay yes, maybe all of Sarah Dessen’s books are pretty much the same. That’s true. However, I’ve been addicted to her books for about 10 years and they never get old to me. This one actually came out last year around this time, but I didn’t get a chance to read it until now. I just had a random thought of wanting to read some realistic fiction and…ta-da! Really good so far and I’m not let down 🙂
