#1 New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire returns to self-publishing with this page-turning YA account of Erin Easter, one of three Erins in the small senior class of rural Blackwell High School who not only share a first name, but also their birthday. Easter, raised by a neglectful single mom, keeps to herself and admires Weston Gates from afar. The other Erins, Erin "Alder" Alderman and Erin "Sonny" Masterson are the darlings of the community: daughters of the two wealthiest families in town, best friends, cheerleaders, and everything Easter isn't--and they never let her forget it. Alder has even claimed Weston since the 8th grade.
Weston is a well-liked star athlete, and the son of two prominent attorneys. He struggles daily with the pressures of living up to his family name and secretly empathizes with Easter's feeling that she belongs somewhere else; in a different life. Not until he begins sneaking nights out with Easter does he gain the courage to buck expectations and acknowledge his feelings ... both for his future, and for her.
A shocking tragedy rocks the tiny town, and Easter's life is turned upside down in the best way possible. But when the truth is revealed and everything she thinks she wanted falls into her lap, life only becomes more complicated.

A really nice read
This book is really entertaining to read because I find it relatable and it kept up my interest the entire time with the touches of comedy. I couldn't put this book down! :)
Total trash! Don’t waste your time trying to read it!
Such a beauty in Happenstance
What a fantastic read (everything I've read by Jamie has been nothing except for fantastic)! I love the relatable feeling I got by reading about Erin (Easter) and Weston. Much of their character and behaviors were those of reality. The things that happened to them, emotions they felt. I was easily pulled into this book and read it in it's entirety within a few hours. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, as well as Jamie's other books I haven't read yet.
