The Rest of the Story

Sarah Dessen

Emma Saylor’s memories of her long-dead mother are sketchy but she always thought she knew about her parents and how they got together. What she learns while on holiday with her mother’s family makes her realise that she has only been told part of the story. Emma decides to fill in the gaps, aided by an old friend who may be something more. An intriguing mystery with a dash of romance.

Happy Girl Lucky

But she thinks that there is a large heart-shaped hole in her life as she hasn’t yet found true love, a situation Hope will do anything to put right.
