This week I'm picking:
What I Thought Was True by
April 15th 2014
by Dial Books for Young Readers
From the author of My Life Next Door comes a swoony summertime romance full of expectation and regret, humor and hard questions.
Castle's Biggest Mistake Ever, Cassidy Somers, is slumming it as a yard
boy on her Nantucket-esque island this summer. He's a rich kid from
across the bridge in Stony Bay, and she hails from a family of fishermen
and housecleaners who keep the island's summer people happy. Gwen
worries a life of cleaning houses will be her fate too, but just when it
looks like she'll never escape her past—or the island—Gwen's dad gives
her some shocking advice. Sparks fly and secret histories unspool as
Gwen spends a gorgeous, restless summer struggling to resolve what she
thought was true—about the place she lives, the people she loves, and
even herself—with what really is.
A magnetic, push-me-pull-me romance with depth, this is for fans of Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Deb Caletti.
Why I'm Waiting:
I absolutely adored her first book My Life Next Door, and it ended up being one of my favorites from 2012. I didn't even need to read what this book was about to know that I can't wait to read this book. But after reading the description? OMG, I can't wait, this is my favorite kind of book.
