Overview

Carly and her best friend Becca are ready to drop a nuclear bomb on summer. It's the last one before reality sets in and they're off on their own. Carly is ready to break the mold and stop being known as a goody-two-shoes. In order to get the ball rolling, she agrees to a double date with Gavin – her good-looking yet moody lab partner.

Gavin doesn't have summer plans except to work at his two jobs and hang out in his room drawing. He likes to keep to himself, but lets his brother Nate talk him into going on a double date. Carly isn't like the rest of the girls at school that drive him crazy. She doesn't ask a lot of questions and seems to know when to give him the spaces he craves. Gavin always thought that she was beautiful, but he believes that relationships and love are a lost cause.

Will their date prove that summer love is right around the corner or will it be a dead end?

Intended for 17+.

Bio in Marysue’s own words…

Hi, I’m Marysue G Hobika, and yes I like the G because it says a lot about who I am and where I come from.

I’m from a small rural town called Caledonia, which is about 20 miles outside of Rochester, NY. Nothing can really compare to growing up in a small town where you know everyone and everyone knows you. My high school graduating class had only 96 students, so it is safe to say that I knew them all.

Many of my ideas come from my childhood and having lived in this tight knit community. It was a safe place to grow up and I remember riding my bike all over town with my friends and my cousin, stopping at the AM/PM minimarket to buy candy or big 32oz sodas. During the winter we played out in the snow and even tooled around on my friend’s snowmobile until I kept making us crash because I wasn’t leaning the right way. It was a happy childhood and one I wouldn’t change for anything.

Before heading off to college, I decided to spend a year as a Rotary exchange student. I was curious about what it would be like to live in a foreign country and truly be assimilated into their language and culture. I had taken Spanish in high school and it had immediately clicked, so Spain was a logical choice for my study abroad. I spent a year in the Canary Islands and my passion for the foreign language blossomed. A quote I once heard was, “To speak two languages is to have two souls.” And that is exactly how I feel. Who knows when I might decide to weave details from my experience into a book?

When it was time to go to college I was ready for a big school setting with little anonymity, but I didn’t want to be too far from home. I chose to attend college at SUNY at Buffalo to study to become a Spanish teacher.

I was a Spanish middle school teacher until I decided to stay home and raise a family of my own. Currently I live in Pittsford, NY with my husband, three children and a pug. My house is a busy place with kids coming and going. They all offer inspiration for my books.
