Salvation by Anne Osterlund

Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Penguin (Speak)

Publish Date: January, 2013

Goodreads Synopsis:

A smart, unexpected romance from an award-winning author.

Salvador Resendez--Salva to his friends--appears to have it all. His Mexican immigrant family has high expectations, and Salva intends to fulfill them. He's student body president, quarterback of the football team, and has a near-perfect GPA. Everyone loves him.

Especially Beth Courant, AKA the walking disaster area. Dreamy and shy, Beth is used to blending into the background. But she's also smart, and she has serious plans for her future.

Popular guy and bookish girl--the two have almost nothing in common. Until fate throws them together and the attraction is irresistible. Soon Beth is pushing Salva to set his sights higher than ever--because she knows he has more to offer, more than even he realizes.

Then tragedy strikes--and threatens to destroy everything that Salva has worked for. Will Beth's love be enough to save him?

Thoughtful and romantic, this is a beautifully written story about following your heart and fulfilling your potential.


“Salva knew his dearth of a sex life was crazy. He hadn’t been dateless for this long since he’d entered Liberty High, but—well, he kept having dreams about the wrong girl.” (Paperback, pg. 104-105)

(On a sidenote, I read over that second sentence several times, and each time I at first read ‘Liberty High’ as ‘Library High’. That kind of says something about me, doesn’t it? But also, wouldn’t it have been so much cooler to go to a school called ‘Library High’?)
So! Reading anything good right now?
