"Lauren has a secret. Colby has a problem. But when they find each other, everything falls into place.
Lauren is the new girl in town with a dark secret. Colby is the football hero with a dream of something more. In alternating chapters, they come together, fall apart, and build something stronger than either of them thought possible--something to truly believe in."
Why I Can't Wait: Because it's by Lisa Schroeder, and I will read anything Lisa writes. It's really that simple. I love the concept of the new girl in town bonding with the football star, coming together, falling apart, and possibly mending the broken pieces. I also love Lisa's description of her novel on Goodreads as well as the praise from some of my favorite authors. If you haven't had the chance to read this yet...
"Hi! I'm the author of this book, and I thought I'd tell you a little bit about it in addition to the official "publisher's description."
It's a book about small town life, about dreams, about what family and friendship means, and about helping someone else be the best version of themselves. The story is told from two points of view - Colby's and Lauren's. It's similar in that respect to how Brooklyn and Nico tell the story in CHASING BROOKLYN.
A couple of my favorite authors read it and had super nice things to say:
'Full of big dreams and even bigger heart, The Bridge from Me to You is a beautifully told story of love, family and football.' - Jennifer E. Smith, author of The Geography of You and Me and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
'Filled with grace, wisdom, and bittersweet wonder, The Bridge from Me to You beautifully captures the aches and joys of family, love and friendship. You'll want to hug this book.' - Lindsey Leavitt, author of Going Vintage and The Chapel Wars
So there you go. YA novel #6 coming your way July, 2014"
Excited yet? I sure am!
