Teaser Tuesday[140]: You Are Here by Jennifer E. Smith

You Are Here by Jennifer E. Smith

Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Release Date: 2009

Goodreads Synopsis:

Now in paperback with a new cover, Jennifer E. Smith's breathtaking novel about finding out where you are going by discovering what you've left behind.

Emma and her neighbor Peter are both lonely in a way that only bothers them on occasion. They both come from families they don’t quite understand. They both feel like something big is missing from their lives—and they’re both about to search for answers. When Emma makes a discovery that shakes the foundations of her identity, she convinces Peter to join her for a road trip. Each of them has something to find: For Emma, it is a grave—a grave that may be her only connection to her family. Peter is seeking something harder to define, but perhaps easier to navigate—a freedom, a sense of something more than what he has. Together, they take to the open road, engaging in a universal quest to make sense of who they are and where they come from…and learning a thing or two about love along the way.


“The dog turned in three cramped circles in the backseat, then settled down with his nose tucked beneath a paw, and Peter felt a quick rush of affection for him, a fellow outcast, as unlikely a stowaway as himself on this trip that nobody really understood.” (Paperback, pg. 85)
