Can't Wait Wednesday: The Rest of the Story


Can't Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen
Pub. Date: June 4, 2019



Goodreads says, "Emma Saylor doesn’t remember a lot about her mother, who died when she was ten. But she does remember the stories her mom told her about the big lake that went on forever, with cold, clear water and mossy trees at the edges.  Now it’s just Emma and her dad, and life is good, if a little predictable…until Emma is unexpectedly sent to spend the summer with her mother’s family—her grandmother and cousins she hasn’t seen since she was a little girl.  When Emma arrives at North Lake, she realizes there are actually two very different communities there. Her mother grew up in working class North Lake, while her dad spent summers in the wealthier Lake North resort. The more time Emma spends there, the more it starts to feel like she is divided into two people as well. To her father, she is Emma. But to her new family, she is Saylor, the name her mother always called her.  Then there’s Roo, the boy who was her very best friend when she was little. Roo holds the key to her family’s history, and slowly, he helps her put the pieces together about her past. It’s hard not to get caught up in the magic of North Lake—and Saylor finds herself falling under Roo’s spell as well.  For Saylor, it’s like a whole new world is opening up to her. But when it’s time to go back home, which side of her will win out?"

Sarah Dessen has a new novel coming out this summer!!!!!!!!!! You guys know she is one of my favorite authors of all time and it just isn't summer without a Sarah Dessen novel. I love that this one takes place during the summer at a lake resort.  This bookworm is super happy. What do you guys think of her latest novel?

  3. Dessen is on my list of if-she-writes-it-I-will-read-it. I have a weird affection for grief books too, so the mother thing plays right into that.
