Seventeen-year-old Sadie is in love: epic, heartfelt, and utterly one-sided. The object of her obsession - ahem, affection - is her best friend, Garrett Delaney, who has been oblivious to Sadie's feelings ever since he sauntered into her life and wowed her with his passion for Proust (not to mention his deep-blue eyes). For two long, painful years, Sadie has been Garrett's constant companion, sharing his taste in everything from tragic Russian literature to art films to '80s indie rock- all to no avail. But when Garrett leaves for a summer literary retreat, Sadie is sure that the absence will make his heart grow fonder - until he calls to say he's fallen in love. With some other girl! A
heartbroken Sadie realizes that she's finally had enough. It's time for total Garrett detox! Aided by a barista job, an eclectic crew of new friends (including the hunky chef, Josh), and a customized self-help
guide, Sadie embarks on a summer of personal reinvention full of laughter, mortifying meltdowns, and a double shot of love. Can a twelve-step program help Sadie kick her unrequited crush for good? Abby McDonald serves up her trademark wit and wisdom in a hilarious new novel.
Garrett Delaney is everything 17-year-old Sadie has ever wanted in a boy, but their relationship has never risen above "best-friend" status. Over the past two years, Sadie has become tired of playing second fiddle to a "parade of girls Garrett falls for with heartbreaking regularity." Now that he's away at writing camp and smitten with yet another girl she decides it's time to get over him for good. The only problem is that, without Garrett in the picture, Sadie isn't sure who she is. In this entertaining antiromance, mainly set in the coffee shop where Sadie works, McDonald (The Anti-Prom) turns the tragedy of unrequited love on its head as she traces her heroine's determined and often comical efforts to find herself and become more independent. Predictably, Sadie's quest is riddled with self-doubt and setbacks, but she has plenty of advocates to catch her when she wavers. Her supporters, an eclectic group of female buddies and co-workers who have had relationship woes of their own, add color and wisdom to the novel, reinforcing the theme that love (and getting over it) is rarely easy. Ages 14 up.
You can't put this book down.
There was a mistake
Page 9 chapter 1. Justin Bieber is spelled incorrectly💔. Bieber is spelled bieber. Not beiber. That is why I had to give it one less star. But other than that the book is good!
Oh yeahh. Amazing book! Would totes recommend this book :)
