The Story of Us
By Deb Caletti
Release Date: April 24, 2012Cricket’s on a self-imposed break from her longtime boyfriend—but she’s picked a bad week to sort out her love life. For one thing, her mother’s romance is taking center stage: After jilting two previous fiancés, her mom is finally marrying Dan Jax, whom Cricket loves. But as wedding attendees arrive for a week of festivities at a guesthouse whose hippie owners have a sweet, sexy son—Ash—complications arise:
Cricket’s future stepsisters make it clear they’re not happy about the marriage. An old friend decides this is the week to declare his love for Cricket. Grandpa chooses to reveal a big secret at a family gathering. Dan’s ex-wife shows up. And even the dogs—Cricket’s old, ill Jupiter and Dan’s young, lively Cruiser—seem to be declaring war.
While Cricket fears that Dan is in danger of becoming ditched husband-to-be number three, she’s also alarmed by her own desires. Because even though her boyfriend looms large in her mind, Ash is right in front of her....
I LOVE Deb Caletti's books, so when I saw she had a new one coming out, I could help but get super excited!!! What's funny about this one, though, is that the girl's name is Cricket, just like the main guy in Lola and the Boy Next Door. It's such an unusual name, yet it's in two books by amazing contemporary ya authors? Hopefully I'll remember it's a girl in this book! And Ash sounds amazing!!!! There's nothing like falling in love when everything else in your life is falling apart. Ahhhh I'm so excited! Can't wait to get my hands on this new one! I know it's bound to be as great as Caletti's other books :)
