THE START OF ME AND YOU, by Emery Lord

start of me

The story: It’s been a year since Paige’s boyfriend died in an accident, and she knows it’s time to move on. So she makes a plan, listing ways to do it: join a club. Swim. Date. And for the last bullet point, she has a go-to guy in mind: Ryan Chase, her crush since third grade. Still–as she gets to know Ryan better, she can’t help but notice his kinda-geeky, kinda-cute cousin Max: and before she knows it, things are going in a way she never expected…which might turn out to be the best way of all.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: This is an engaging story–strictly for girls!–not only about moving on, but about expanding your horizons. If you’re a fan of Sarah Dessen, you’ll like this one too!
