Guess what? I'm back with young adult contemporary fiction after a little detour into women's romantic comedy to start the year.
Like I've said before writing (and reading) YA is my fiction home, but I like to switch things up from time to time too. But the main character in Chasing Days? Not so much. She's a self-proclaimed homeslice and prefers things to stay the way they are, or so she thought...
With graduation on the horizon in just two weeks, she and her best friend struggle with their identities and two secrets that are bigger than both of them. All she knows is everything is about to change, epically.
Want to see the beautiful cover designed by Cheyanne from Nova Book Covers?
I'll confess, I ♥ it soooo much. I'll even just open the photo album on my phone and look at it because it makes me smile so big. And this book? It does the same thing: makes my heart smile because it's a version of what I want for people. Not the hard parts, but the peace, love, and understanding parts. Read it and you'll get exactly what I mean.
So you want to see it, right?
Two-weeks until Willa Wohlbreuk graduates.
Fourteen-days left for exams and senior pranks.
Three hundred-thirty-six-hours for friendships to unravel and to fall in and out of love.
Twenty thousand-one-hundred-sixty-minutes left to go wild and grow up.
And one million two-hundred-nine-thousand-six-hundred-seconds to figure out what freedom really means.
Willa faces her best friend Teddy—Theo now—as he defies his parents and reveals something about himself she never expected. Joss appears with blue hair and stirs things up. And Grady, finally, after four years, suddenly knows Willa’s name. Meanwhile, the undercurrent of uncertainty about the future dredges up the possibility that Willa isn’t even sure who she is. All she knows is life is about to change, epically.
A story of identity and fitting in, friendship and love, living with uncertainty and sexual awakening for fans of Keeping you a Secret by Julie Anne Peters, Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour, Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson, and I'll Give you the Sun by Jandy Nelson.
