Wishlist Thursday[6]: The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen

The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen

Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Penguin (Viking Juvenile)

Publish Date: June 4th, 2013

Goodreads Synopsis:

Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.

Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo's sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.

Emaline's mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he's convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?

Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she's going?

Sarah Dessen's devoted fans will welcome this story of romance, yearning, and, finally, empowerment. It could only happen in the summer.


For some reason, I have yet to review even one of Dessen’s books (mostly because I read all of them before I started reviewing), and so I have yet to express my Dessen-love. Which, there is a lot.
I’ve read all of Dessen’s book (I started with This Lullaby), loved every single one, and am always waited, excited and impatient, for the next one; which, ugh, there’s always a two year wait. I understand that it takes time to write the books and all, but I just love her books so much and always want more of them.
So, all this to say that I’m super excited for this book. I cannot wait for it to come out, and am so happy that it will be released and in my hands in only a couple more weeks. I haven't even read the synopsis of it because I want it to be a surprise, although I've caught glimpses that have only gotten me more excited.
