One of our Books of the Year 2013 & July 2013 Book of the Month A sun drenched and poignant new story from the best-selling US novelist captures one long, last, high school summer vacation for Emaline in her small home town by the sea. Everything is planned for; Emaline will be doing her job, hanging out with friends and, above all, spending time with her boyfriend Luke before they move onto college. But all plans change when Theo, a young student working on a film about a reclusive local artist, arrives. Suddenly Emaline has a lot of choices to make and she has to decide what and who really matter to her. A touching story about growing up and knowing when old loyalties matter most.

A Piece of Passion by Gemma Green, Marketing Mangager, Penguin Children's Fiction.

So why read Sarah’s books over any others in this genre? Easy. She gets it – the characters, settings and plots all feel completely real and a part of your life. The protagonist becomes your best friend, her hopes, dreams and loves become yours – and finishing a Sarah Dessen book leaves you feeling a bit bereft, like the best summer holiday coming to an end. Sarah’s got a huge legion of loyal fans and followers, and it’s easy to see why. As we say here at Penguin, read her once and fall in love. It’s true – try The Moon and More and see what we mean!

Synopsis

The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen

Emaline is spending her last summer before college in her home beach town of Colby. Everything is familiar - from working for her bossy sister Margo at the family rental company to Emaline's gorgeous (and regularly shirtless) childhood sweetheart, Luke. But when an out-of-town brash New York filmmaker, and her young assistant Theo, come to stay at one of the beach houses, everything Emaline thought she knew about herself changes. But can her heart let go of a life she's loved for so long?

It's a gorgeous Summer read so open the pages and fall in love...

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
