The Moon and More

by Sarah Dessen

The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen is the perfect romantic YA novel.

A gorgeous Summer read. Open the pages and fall in love . . .

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?

Confession: I'm practically a Sarah Dessen newbie. Yes, I own How to Deal (Someone Like You and That Summer in one book), but I'd completely forgotten it was even by Sarah Dessen until recently... Whoopsies! So when I stumbled across The Moon and More at my local library, I thought I'd better get myself (re)acquainted with all the awesomeness that I've heard is Sarah Dessen :) How beautiful is that cover! All of my favourite colours in one and such a pretty image, it makes me long for holidays and time off... Naturally, it was only fitting that I read this book in one day (in almost one sitting) on the recent long weekend we had in Melbourne. And what a great way it was to enjoy my day off from work!
