In My Mailbox est un rendez-vous hebdomadaire mis en place par Kristi du blog The Story Siren et inspiré par Alea du blog Pop Culture Junkie. C’est un moyen de partager nos acquisitions de la semaine : achats, emprunts, livres reçus...
Amy Curry thinks her life sucks. Her mom decides to move from California to Connecticut to start anew--just in time for Amy's senior year. Her dad recently died in a car accident. So Amy embarks on a road trip to escape from it all, driving cross-country from the home she's always known toward her new life. Joining Amy on the road trip is Roger, the son of Amy's mother's old friend. Amy hasn’t seen him in years, and she is less than thrilled to be driving across the country with a guy she barely knows. So she's surprised to find that she is developing a crush on him. At the same time, she’s coming to terms with her father’s death and how to put her own life back together after the accident. Told in traditional narrative as well as scraps from the road--diner napkins, motel receipts, postcards--this is the story of one girl's journey to find herself.
Ce livre est beau, très beau. Je suis un peu déçue parce que je pensais le commander en Hardback et qu'en fait, c'est un Paperback, mais il reste beau.
J'ai ce livre dans ma Wish-list depuis que j'ai lu et adoré (♥) Since you've been gone. J'espère qu'il sera tout aussi bien !!
Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing sclass. they get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hanf out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is a little aloof, Gabe is shy and it looks like they are never going to work things out.
But something is happening between them, and everyone can see it.
Their creative writing teacher pushes them together. The baristas at the local Starbucks watch their relationship like a TV series. The bus driver tells his wife about them. The waitress at the diner automatically seats them together. Even the squirrel who lives on the college green believes Lea and Gabe were meant to be together.
You'll be rooting for Gabe and Lea too, in this irrestibly romantic, completely original novel !
J'ai ce livre dans ma Wish depuis que je l'ai vu dans celle d'A.J. et je savais pas de quoi il parlait !!! Je suis trop ravie.
