Waiting on Wednesday - THE START OF ME AND YOU

One of my favorite debut authors of 2014 was Emery Lord and her book, OPEN ROAD SUMMER.  As you can imagine, I was extremely excited when I saw there would be more from her.  Her next book is THE START OF ME AND YOU and is coming in March.  It's also my pick for this week's Waiting on Wednesday.

Title: The Start of Me and You 
Author: Emery Lord
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Publication Date: 3/31/2015

Following her pitch-perfect debut Open Road Summer, Emery Lord pens another gorgeous story of best friends, new love, & second chances.

It’s been a year since it happened—when Paige Hancock’s first boyfriend died in an accident. After shutting out the world for a year, Paige is finally ready for a second chance at high school . . . and she has a plan. First: Get her old crush, Ryan Chase, to date her—the perfect way to convince everyone she’s back to normal. Next: Join a club—simple, it’s high school after all. But when Ryan’s sweet, nerdy cousin, Max, moves to town and recruits Paige for the Quiz Bowl team (of all things!) her perfect plan is thrown for a serious loop. Will Paige be able to face her fears and finally open herself up to the life she was meant to live?

Brimming with heartfelt relationships and authentic high-school dynamics. The Start of Me and You proves that it’s never too late for second chances.

I'm Emery, and I write books about flawed girls who are really trying, complicated families, friends who show up even when everything's going down in flames, the boy who Gets You even when you don't expect it, and the summer that changed everything. 

Open Road Summer is out now, and The Start of Me & You releases March 31st, 2015.
