A sweet, romantic story about second chances and starting over, The Start of Me & You by Emery Lord will leave readers swooning.
It’s been a year since it happened—when Paige Hancock’s first boyfriend died in an accident. After shutting out the world for two years, 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?
The Start of Me & You is a charming love story with two protagonists that readers will be rooting for through every up and down. Though the ultimate outcome is a wee bit predictable, the road getting there is not — and that’s what makes this such a fun book to read. You want to see how Paige and Max will come together, overcome the odds, and make things work.
Besides two charming protagonists, Lord has populated The Start of Me & You with a collection of realistic and relatable supporting characters that help bring Paige’s world to life.
More than just overcoming a romantic hurdle, The Start of Me & You is also about one young woman moving past a tragedy, overcoming her own fears and insecurities, and discovering who she really wants to be — something quintessential for every human being who is going through or has gone through adolescence.
The Start of Me & You is in stores March 31st.
