From the author of This Song Will Save Your Life comes a funny and relatable book about the hazards of falling for a person you haven’t met yet.

Seventeen-year-old Arden Huntley is recklessly loyal. Taking care of her loved ones is what gives Arden purpose in her life and makes her feel like she matters. But she’s tired of being loyal to people who don’t appreciate her—including her needy best friend and her absent mom.

Arden finds comfort in a blog she stumbles upon called “Tonight the Streets Are Ours,” the musings of a young New York City writer named Peter. When Peter is dumped by the girlfriend he blogs about, Arden decides to take a road trip to see him.

During one crazy night out in NYC filled with parties, dancing, and music—the type of night when anything can happen, and nearly everything does—Arden discovers that Peter isn’t exactly who she thought he was. And maybe she isn’t exactly who she thought she was, either. 

Ok, let me admit something right here, right now: I have never read a Leila Sales book. This Song Will Save Your Life is sitting on my bookshelf right now, haunting me. And yet, I think of all the Leila Sales concepts that I’ve heard of and loved, this one is the one that’s going to make me a real fan. It has everything I love – writing, blogging, complex relationships with family and friends, a road trip, one night in New York, and a possible romance. 
Also, just look at that beautiful typographic cover! I NEED THIS BOOK ON MY SHELF.
