“Susane Colasanti delivers a great young adult read for any teen who is struggling with the drama of early high school years. High school sophomore Marisa is smart and charming as she navigates the battlefield that is teen dating. In the end, though, she finds the person that she knew she was waiting for, and he was waiting for her, too.”
-- Darcie Lochinski, Saturn Booksellers, Gaylord, MI


Description

Read Susane Colasanti's posts on the Penguin Blog.

It’s sophomore year, and Marisa is ready for a fresh start and, hopefully, her first real boyfriend. But after popular Derek asks her out, things get complicated. Not only do her parents unexpectedly separate, but Marisa has a fight with her best friend, and Derek—the love of her life—delivers a shocking disappointment. The only things keeping Marisa together are the podcasts from the anonymous DJ, who seems to totally understand Marisa. But she doesn’t know who he is . . . or maybe she does.
