Book Blitz:Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay {Excerpt + Teasers + Giveaway}

Paperback Re-Release: 05/13/14
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Romance

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?

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.
