Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
In Sarah Ockler's debut novel, she explores the roiling waves of death and grief while finding new light in a life still living. Anna is on vacation with her best friend Frankie in California, and when Frankie suggests project Twenty Boy Summer(twenty guys in twenty days) Anna reluctantly agrees. The thing is, she's not ready for a summer fling. Especially since just a year ago, Anna fell in love with Frankie's brother Matt and he died in a car crash. Now, she must bury the secret deep in her heart, or else risk the shattering of her seemingly normal life-and the guilt of betraying her first love.
