Then one day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control.

Quiet Emily's sociable and daring best friend, Sloane, has disappeared leaving nothing but a random list of bizarre tasks for her to complete, but with unexpected help from popular classmate Frank Porter, Emily gives them a try in Morgan Matson's Since You've Been Gone.

Morgan Matson, Jenny Han and Sara Zarr
The King's English Bookshop, Friday, May 9 at 7pm
Join young adult authors, Jenny Han, Morgan Matson and Sara Zarr for a discussion and reading featuring their new young adult novels, All the Boys I've Loved Before, Since You've Been Gone, and The Lucy Variations.

Jenny Han's All the Boys I've Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

Morgan Matson's novel, Since You've Been Gone is about Emily who, Pre-Sloane, didn't go to parties, she barely talked to guys, she didn't do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend—the one who yanks you out of your shell.But right before what should have been an epic summer, Sloane just... disappears. No note. No calls. No texts. No Sloane. There’s just a random to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-selected-definitely-bizarre-tasks that Emily would never try... unless they could lead back to her best friend. Apple Picking at Night? Ok, easy enough.Dance until Dawn? Sure. Why not? Kiss a Stranger? Wait... what?

Getting through Sloane’s list would mean a lot of firsts. But Emily has this whole unexpected summer ahead of her, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected) to check things off. Who knows what she’ll find?

Sara Zarr's novel The Lucy Variations takes readers inside one girl's struggle to reclaim her love of music and to find joy again, even when things don't go according to plan.
