Description

Get this, I'm supposed to be starting a journal about "my journey." Please. I can see it now: Dear Diary, As I'm set adrift on this crazy sea called "life" . . . I don't think so.

It's been seventy-five days. Amy's sick of her parents suddenly taking an interest in her.

And she's really sick of people asking her about Julia. Julia's gone now, and she doesn't want to talk about it. They wouldn't get it, anyway. They wouldn't understand what it feels like to have your best friend ripped away from you.

They wouldn't understand what it feels like to know it's your fault.

Amy's shrink thinks it would help to start a diary. Instead, Amy starts writing letters to Julia.

But as she writes letter after letter, she begins to realize that the past wasn't as perfect as she thought it was—and the present deserves a chance too.




About the Author

Elizabeth Scott grew up in a town so small it didn't even have a post office, though it did boast an impressive cattle population. She's sold hardware and panty hose and had a memorable three-day stint in the dot-com industry, where she learned that she really didn't want a career burning CDs. She lives just outside Washington, DC, with her husband; firmly believes you can never own too many books; and would love it if you visited her website, www.elizabethwrites.com.




Praise For Love You Hate You Miss You

“Few other writers tell stories as heartbreaking, hilarious, complicated and true as Elizabeth Scott, and LOVE YOU HATE YOU MISS YOU is probably her very best yet.”
-Claudia Gray, author of Evernight

“Reminiscent of John Green’s Looking for Alaska (2005)...a satisfying story of an engaging heroine successfully naming and confronting her demons.”
-Booklist

“The plot is elegantly carried by [Amy’s] honest, clear expression of how she feels about what she is going through.”
-School Library Journal

“Emotional, heartbreaking, and believable. Scott’s writing is clear and spare, almost poetic in the imagery that is created.”
-Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

“Deceptively touching…the twist of a family of thieves gives the story originality.”
-School Library Journal
