Under-Cover Sundays (17): Love & Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

Last year I started a feature here titled "Under-Cover Sundays". The idea was to share that extra-special touch publishers sometimes put into a book, under the dust jacket of a hard cover. I've found a few more and decided to keep on sharing, starting with today's book.

Today's under cover book is Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay.

This time around the photo taken was of a library copy which meant I could not take the dust jacket off. I managed to get a photo of the cover, but not the spine. Here we go!

Dust Jacket & Summary:

My wish is to fall cranium over Converse in dizzy daydream-worthy love.

If only it were that easy.

Marcie has been dragged away from home for the summer—from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She’s left behind her friends, a group of freaks and geeks called the Leftovers, including her emo-rocker boyfriend, and her father.

By the time Labor Day rolls around, Marcie suspects this “summer vacation” has become permanent. She has to start at a new school, and there she leaves behind her Leftover status when a cute boy brings her breakfast and a new romance heats up. But understanding love, especially when you’ve watched your parents’ affections end, is elusive. What does it feel like, really? Can you even know it until you’ve lost it?

Love & Leftovers is a beautifully written story of one girl’s journey navigating family, friends, and love, and a compelling and sexy read that teens will gobble up whole.

Under the cover!

What do you think?
