Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando

Genre: YA Contemporary

Publisher: Little, Brown

Publish Date: December 24th, 2013

Goodreads Synopsis:

It's time to meet your new roomie.

When East Coast native Elizabeth receives her freshman-year roommate assignment, she shoots off an e-mail to coordinate the basics: television, microwave, mini-fridge. That first note to San Franciscan Lauren sparks a series of e-mails that alters the landscape of each girl's summer -- and raises questions about how two girls who are so different will ever share a dorm room.

As the countdown to college begins, life at home becomes increasingly complex. With family relationships and childhood friendships strained by change, it suddenly seems that the only people Elizabeth and Lauren can rely on are the complicated new boys in their lives . . . and each other. Even though they've never met.

National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr and acclaimed author Tara Altebrando join forces for a novel about growing up, leaving home, and getting that one fateful e-mail that assigns your college roommate.


“Then I start wondering how your sex life works with a roommate. It’s got to be as bad as, or worse than, living at home. What if Ebb is hooking up like crazy while I’m writing research papers three feet away?” (ARC, pg. 84)
