Love and Leftovers
Paperback Re-Release: 05/13/14
Katherine Tegen Books
Summary from Goodreads:
My wishis to fall
cranium over Converse
in dizzy, daydream-worthy love.
(If only it were that easy.)

When her parents split, Marcie is dragged from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She leaves 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 "vacation" has become permanent. She starts at a new school where 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?

Excerpt

I Know I Like Him

I know
Linus is my boyfriend
and he’s adorable
in his own Linusy ways.
           
I know
he’s my second-best friend
who’d tie for first
if it wouldn’t hurt Katie’s feelings.

I know
how smart he is
and that he’d trade it all in
for an ounce of athletic ability.

I know
his music is like my poetry—
an inward glance and
an outlet for expression.

I know
we could be made-for-TV soul mates
who fall ass-over-teakettle
in crazy, amazing love.

I know
I like resting my head on his shoulder
while we watch movies
on the couch.

I know
I like kissing him in the hall between classes
while everyone else
tries not to see.

But how do I know
when it’s love?


About the Author


Raised without television, Sarah Tregay started writing her own middle grade novels after she had read all of the ones in the library. She later discovered YA books, but never did make it to the adult section. When she's not jotting down poems at stoplights, she can be found hanging out with her "little sister" from Big Brothers Big Sisters. Sarah lives in Eagle, Idaho with her husband, two Boston Terriers, and an appaloosa named Mr. Pots. Her next book, Fan Art, will be released in June.
