GRMToday’s book is brought to you by a dear friend of mine.  A friend who appreciates my relationship with books, even if she doesn’t fully understand it.  When she moved away a couple of years ago I’d randomly end up with bags and once a box of books from their local library book sale.  She has since moved home but the understanding is still in place.

It’s been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents’ divorce—or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live.

A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she’s been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.

In her signature pitch-perfect style, Sarah Dessen explores the hearts of two lonely people learning to connect.

Don’t forget to check out her blog and link back to Lauren’s Page Turners. It’s been a minute since I highlighted one of my fifty-billion children’s books for Kindle.  With the idea of Christmas books and winter snuggles it seems a fitting time to pull on out that’s been sitting for so long it’s embarrassing.

Don’t forget to check out her blog and link back to Lauren’s Page Turners. There is this legitimate thing where there are so many books on my shelves and I haven’t a clue where so many of them came from.  Trust me, I’m not complaining.  It’s fodder for those days when I just want to read a book, or many books, and it’s a prime reason why Goodreads Monday needs to exist.  And a perfect example of how my stumbling across it was a gift.  This book is another example of that, not a clue where it came from but it wants to be read. Darci Monroe overcame a childhood of neglect with an ebullient spirit, a positive attitude…and extraordinary determination. Now the […]
