Hi all! My fourth YA novel, AUGUST & EVERYTHING AFTER (Sourcebooks Fire), is out today and I’m soooo excited to see this book go into the world!!! The characters in this book are among my favorites and I’m anxious to have readers meet them on the page. In honor of my book’s release day, my daughter took this amazing photo!
Here’s a little more about the book. You can purchase it wherever books are sold.
One last summer to escape, to find herself, to figure out what comes next.
Graduation was supposed to be a relief. Except Quinn can’t avoid the rumors that plagued her throughout high school or the barrage of well-intentioned questions about her college plans. How is she supposed to know what she wants to do for the next four years, let alone the rest of her life? And why does no one understand that it’s hard for her to think about the future―or feel as if she even deserves one―when her best friend is dead?
Spending the summer with her aunt at the Jersey shore may just be the fresh start Quinn so desperately needs. And when she meets Malcolm, a musician with his own haunted past, she starts to believe in second chances. Can Quinn find love while finding herself?
” A satisfying blend of family drama, romance, and music, staged in the aftermath of tragedy.” – Publishers Weekly
“The story’s solidly believable and engaging characters, portrayal of the uncertain course of new love, and avoidance of a simplistic happy ending will pull readers in.” – Booklist
“Readers will be glad to know that Quinn emerges from this back-and-forth stronger, wiser, and more herself than ever. Fans of Sarah Dessen’s Just Listen will likely enjoy this romance.” – School Library Journal
