Product description

The eagerly anticipated follow-up to "My Life Next Door" is a magnetic, push-me-pull-me summer romance for fans of Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han. Gwen Castle's Biggest Mistake Ever, Cassidy Somers, is slumming it as a yard boy on her idyllic Nantucket-esque island this summer. He's a rich kid from across the bridge in Stony Bay, and she hails from a family of fishermen and housecleaners who keep the island's summer people happy. Gwen worries a life of cleaning houses will be her fate too, but just when it looks like she'll never escape her past--or the island--Gwen's dad gives her some shocking advice. Sparks fly and secret histories unspool as Gwen spends a gorgeous, restless summer struggling to resolve what she thought was true--about the place she lives, the people she loves, and even herself--with what really is. Huntley Fitzpatrick delivers another enticing summer read full of expectation and regret, humor and hard questions, and a romance that will make every reader swoon.

Review quote

PRAISE FOR "MY LIFE NEXT DOOR" - "Fitzpatrick's excellent first novel movingly captures the intensity of first love [and] the corrupting forces of power..." ("Publishers Weekly", starred review) - "Samantha and Jase have chemistry that crackles: it's the novel's tender, awkward, sexy, dizzy-happy portrayal of first love that really makes it soar." ("Horn Book") - "The characters are dynamic and realistic. Strong narrative pacing adds to the whole sun-kissed package, which is on par with authors such as Sarah Dessen and Deb Caletti." ("School Library Journal") - "An almost perfect summer romance...[that] will have every girl who reads the novel wishing for a Jase of her own." ("Kirkus Reviews") - "Fitzpatrick perfectly captures the heady joys of first love while still dealing with everyday realities" (VOYA) - "Jase and Samantha have a heart-warming romance every girl will envy." (Simone Elkeles, "New York Times" bestselling author of the Perfect Chemistry series) - "A wonderful read that will connect with your heart -- guaranteed!"
