Publisher: Dial Books For Young Readers
A gorgeous debut about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another
“One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time.”
The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy, affectionate. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen-year-old Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. As the two fall fiercely in love, Jase's family makes Samantha one of their own. Then in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?
A dreamy summer read, full of characters who stay with you long after the story is over.
If this is Huntley Fitzpatrick's debut novel, I can't wait to read some of her works in future!
Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful.
No other words are nedded to describe this book.
I loved the Garret family, I loved Samantha, I loved Jase, I loved their relationship, I LOVED George! I loved everything in this book.
This book is amazing and I think everyone should read it because they won't be disappointed.
