Goodreads Book Description

“You go through life thinking there’s so much you need. . . . Until you leave with only your phone, your wallet, and a picture of your mother.”

Marin hasn’t spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind. No one knows the truth about those final weeks. Not even her best friend Mabel. But even thousands of miles away from the California coast, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tragedy she’s tried to outrun. Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits. Mabel is coming to visit and Marin will be forced to face everything that’s been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her heart.

Why I’m Excited

The mystery of why Marin left is definitely one of the things drawing me to this book. I’m also intrigued by the idea of picking up and starting over somewhere new, being anyone that you want to be. I won’t lie, it’s something I’ve thought about doing, but certainly don’t have the guts to actually do. I think this book is also going to have some aspects of dealing with your past, and those are always good lessons to be reminded of. LAST – this cover is amazing.
