Overview

Fans of the international bestselling Faking It, Ordinary World, and She Has Your Eyes have a new love story to sink their hearts into with this delightful spinoff.

Wylie Baker is like almost every other suburban sophomore: she texts with her best friends Roxanne and "Bottsy," is impatient to escape the doldrums of high school, and yearns for a boyfriend. But when Wylie's recently discovered biological father David and his wife, Andi, show up to her '80s-themed Sweet Sixteen costume party, her friends are intrigued by and attracted to the mystery man dressed as a British pop star. Wylie's resistance to dish on him prompts her rival, Christina, to dig up the dirt on her own.

A clash with Christina sends Wylie to detention, where she meets Clark Anderson, a cute senior clad in leather jacket and graphic T-shirts, who charms his teachers and takes an instant interest in Wylie. Smart and well read, he insists that they abandon their smartphones for pen and paper. Every correspondence draws them closer, until they are holding hands underneath the desks and stealing kisses in the park.

While Christina makes life increasingly difficult for Wylie in and out of school, Wylie's deepening relationship with David and Andi makes trouble for her parents, Janine and Peter, and her sister, Trish. Everyone seems to be hiding something--Clark's inability to let go of his ex-girlfriend, Roxanne and Bottsy's conflicting love interests, and David's reluctance to come clean about his past--and Wylie spins in the whirlpool of it all. Clark's pending graduation threatens Wylie, her impulses threaten all of her relationships, and Christina's revelation about David threatens to blow everything apart. Wylie's only solace may be in the power of the written word.

About the Author

Elisa Lorello wasn’t always a novelist, but she’s been a writer and teacher all her life. A self-proclaimed “manifester of ideas,” she writes novels about relationships a la Nora Ephron, but with Aaron Sorkin-like dialogue. She also teaches the craft of storytelling, writing process, and rhetoric, and she approaches each subject with enthusiasm and humor.

A Long Island native, Elisa is the youngest of seven children. She earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and taught rhetoric and writing at the college level for more than ten years. In 2012 she became a full-time novelist.

Elisa is the author of eight novels, including the bestselling Faking It, and one memoir. She has been featured in the Charlotte Observer and, more recently, Last Best News, and was a guest speaker at the Triangle Association of Freelancers 2012 and 2014 Write Now! conferences. In May 2016 she presented a lesson for the Women’s Fiction Writers Association spring workshop. She continues to speak and write about her publishing experience and teach the craft of writing and revision.

Elisa enjoys reading, walking, hanging out in coffee shops, Nutella, and all things Duran Duran. She plays guitar badly and occasionally bakes. She moved to Montana in 2016 and is newly married.
