Following her pitch-perfect debut Open Road Summer, Emery Lord pens another gorgeous story of best friends, new love, & second chances.
It’s been a year since it happened—when Paige Hancock’s first boyfriend died in an accident. After shutting out the world for a year, Paige is finally ready for a second chance at high school . . . and she has a plan. First: Get her old crush, Ryan Chase, to date her—the perfect way to convince everyone she’s back to normal. Next: Join a club—simple, it’s high school after all. But when Ryan’s sweet, nerdy cousin, Max, moves to town and recruits Paige for the Quiz Bowl team (of all things!) her perfect plan is thrown for a serious loop. Will Paige be able to face her fears and finally open herself up to the life she was meant to live?
Brimming with heartfelt relationships and authentic high-school dynamics, The Start of Me and You proves that it’s never too late for second chances.
I haven’t finished my review yet of Open Road Summer
even though I read it way back in May, and there’s a big reason: it’s probably one of my favourite books of the year, and possibly of the last few years, and a book like that doesn’t just get a review – it gets a lot of thought and a full-on essay from me. =p A truly heartfelt book, ORS floored me with its honesty and writing from the heart. The friendship and romance in that book were arrestingly good so I can’t help but be on the edge of my seat waiting for Emery Lord’s sophomore title.
Plus, just look at that gorgeous cover! It perfectly evokes all-the-feels, summer, and contemporary…and you guys know I love those things! Look out for my review of Open Road Summer soon, and in the meantime, swoon over that synopsis!
Are you guys waiting for THE START OF ME AND YOU, too? Have you read (and fallen in love with) OPEN ROAD SUMMER? Isn’t that cover amazing? What are you waiting for this week? Sound off in the comments!
