What I Thought Was True
Expected publication date:
15th April 2014
(From Goodreads)From the author of My Life Next Door comes a swoony summertime romance full of expectation and regret, humor and hard questions.
Gwen Castle's Biggest Mistake Ever, Cassidy Somers, is slumming it as a yard boy on her Nantucket-esque island this summer. He's a rich kid from across the bridge in Stony Bay, and she hails from a family of fishermen and housecleaners who keep the island's summer people happy. Gwen worries a life of cleaning houses will be her fate too, but just when it looks like she'll never escape her past—or the island—Gwen's dad gives her some shocking advice. Sparks fly and secret histories unspool as Gwen spends a gorgeous, restless summer struggling to resolve what she thought was true—about the place she lives, the people she loves, and even herself—with what really is.
A magnetic, push-me-pull-me romance with depth, this is for fans of Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Deb Caletti
OMIGOSH!!! YES! THIS WAS ON MY LIST OF MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2014! I literally screamed when I saw that there was a sneak peak on netgalley.com and I snatched it up!
I have loved Huntley Fitzpatrick's work ever since her first book - My Life Next Door (I loved that book so much!!!! Can't wait for the sequel-ish in 2015). Anyways, I was so excited when I finally got my hands on it and I anticipated so many good things and oh my gosh! So much joy! Once again, Huntley Fitzpatrick did NOT disappoint! I think this is already so good and I've only read 23 beautiful pages of it. I just want that book in my arms already. I'm going to stroke that book when I get it and see that beautiful cover in my hands. And then I'm going to read it and love it and adore it because its a beautiful book duh.
23 pages in and I think Gwen is a great protagonist.
23 pages in and aww Emory!~
23 pages in and oh my god Cass!
There was a line 'Don't think about it. And definitely not about his lips.'
I want to think about his lips. Oh gosh another sexy and beautiful person to add to my top favourite guys of all time:D
I want to know what happens after this 23 pages.
I want to know what happens to Cass and Gwen.
I want to know if they get the beautiful happy ending they deserve.
23 pages in and I've fallen in love with all the characters in the book. <3
Thank you Dial for allowing me to read a sneak peek. I really enjoyed it! Huntley Fitzpatrick really writes the best contemporary books around!
Those of you who are interested in Contemporary/Romance/YA or just any kind of book, remember to buy this book when it is out and do go read her other book too! It's literally a work of art.
5 Stars Out of 5 Stars ALREADY!
^SENSE THE EMPHASIS!
