My Made-Up Synopsis

Rachel goes to the annual three-day fair in her little suburban town.At the fair, she meets a seemingly perfect boy, and there seems to be a connection between the two.

Despite how much Rachel likes him, there seems to be something off about him, something she can’t place. Will she be able to figure it out? Will Rachel and her new acquaintance be able to overlook their backgrounds and find love after all?

Real Synopsis

A remarkable story of strange beauty and self-discovery from Printz Award winner Nick Lake

Cassie is writing a letter to the boy whose heart she broke. She’s trying to explain why. Why she pushed him away. Why her father got so angry when he saw them together. Why she disappears some nights. Why she won’t let herself remember what happened that long-ago night on the boardwalk. Why she fell apart so completely.

Desperate for his forgiveness, she’s telling the whole story of the summer she nearly lost herself. She’s hoping he’ll understand as well as she now does how love—love for your family, love for that person who makes your heart beat faster, and love for yourself—can save you after all.

The Verdict

Well, I was sort of on the right track regarding a female main character and the genre of contemporary-romance. Nonetheless, I’m definitely adding this to my TBR; it looks super good.
