Welcome to the Pre-Squee, a new weekly feature here at the Bookworms and at The Book Swarm. Some books, though they might not be coming out for a few months, need an early squee — we just can’t hold in our excitement about them! Sure, we’ll do full reviews closer to the release date but this feature gives us a chance to share a little bit of our love, whether it be for the story, cover, characters, or whatever. We’re quite flexible in our book love.
So today we Squee about
Between Us and the Moon
June 30th 2015 by Harper Teen
A luminous young adult novel that evokes Judy Blume’s Forever for a new generation.
Ever since Sarah was born, she’s lived in the shadow of her beautiful older sister, Scarlett. But this summer on Cape Cod, she’s determined to finally grow up. Then she meets gorgeous college boy Andrew. He sees her as the girl she wants to be. A girl who’s older than she is. A girl like Scarlett.
Before she knows what’s happened, one little lie has transformed into something real. And by the end of August, she might have to choose between falling in love, and finding herself.
Fans of Jenny Han and Stephanie Perkins are destined to fall for this story about how life and love are impossible to predict
Ok, so I adore Rebecca Maizel – her Vampire Queen series is one of my favourites and when I saw that she has a YA Contemporary coming up next, of course I was excited!
Between Us and the Moon is wonderful! It has a great heroine, a girl who uses the summer to finds herself and defines herself and everything she went thought felt perfectly genuine. Of course, there is romance involved and I loved Andrew so much. The problem? She’s 16 he is 19 … and to be quite honest I didn’t mind the age difference at all. But of course… socially, it’s a huge deal. In any case, the book was wonderful … apart from the end, where I was just hoping for more. But.. the rest 99% of the book were simply great!
So yes, I Between Us and the Moon definitely deserves an early squee!
