Spotlight: Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

Eeee, I am SO excited to read this book!

Sarah Tregay is a debut novelist, and a her book is written in verse. Verse isn't always an easy sell, something I know too well, so I'm thrilled Sarah found an editor and a house to publish it! Verse lovers, celebrate, we have another book to read!

Here is the description:

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?

Publisher's Weekly says, "The formal variety of Tregay’s poems creates an immediacy that should maintain readers’ interest and sympathy for Marcie."
I love these lines, taken from the novel:

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

This novel releases December 27, 2011 from Katherine Tegen Books. Happy reading!
