Goodreads Book Description
A sparkling coming-of-age story about self-discovery, first love, and the true meaning of family, perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Dessen.
Seventeen-year-old Sadie Bell has this summer all figured out: She’s going to befriend the cool girls at her school. She’s going to bond with her absentee father, a famous artist, and impress him with her photography skills. And she’s finally going to get over Noah, the swoony older guy who was her very first mistake.
Sadie wasn’t counting on meeting Sam, a funny and free-thinking boy who makes her question all of her goals. But even after a summer of talking, touching, and sharing secrets, Sam says he just wants to be friends. And when those Sadie cares about most hurt her, Sam’s friendship may not be enough. Sadie can see the world through her camera, but can she see the people who have loved and supported her all along?
Set against a glamorous New York City backdrop, this coming-of-age romance is a gorgeous summer read—one whose characters will stay with you long into the fall.
Why I’m Excited
There is just something so magical about New York City. I visit pretty regularly because my best friend lives in the city, but it’s always been a dream of mine to live there. I love the vibe, the lifestyle, and everything that the city has to offer (minus the amount of tourists of course). I’m not going to lie, when I am there, I pretend I live there, and it makes me feel so damn fabulous. So, reason number one why I’m excited for this book.
Reason number two for why I am excited for this book is that is seems to offer everything! I’m hoping that not only are we going to see Sadie do some self-discovery and deal with the struggles of growing up, but that we’re also going to get a wonderful love story out of it! This whole “Sam just wants to be friends” thing better not be real…
Last but certainly not least, reason number three is the mentions of Jenny Han and Sarah Dessen. All the swoons!
