SOOOOOO very excited that How to Unbreakup has released today! This story was SUPER fun to write and is all about summer vacations gone wrong and cute boys with a sprinkle of Star Wars nerdiness! (not necessarily in that order–hahaha). But mostly it’s about Grace, who is forced to spend her summer vacation with her ex-boyfriend, his family, and her family–all packed into 1 vacation home. Problem is Grace REALLY wants Sage back and realizes she made a huge mistake when she broke up with him.
First rule of breakups: There’s no going back.
For three years, seventeen-year-old Grace Evers has regretted breaking up with Sage Castle.
That day, she lost her boyfriend and best friend. And let’s be honest, it’s impossible to just be friends with the one person who gets you, faults and all, and loved you anyway. It’s impossible not to think about how it felt to be held by him, or the way he looked right before he was about to kiss you with the most perfectly yummy kiss goodnight.
And now that things are over between them, they’ve become strangers to one another. Sage won’t even look at Grace, let alone talk to her!
Breakup life sucks and Grace is utterly miserable, doing whatever she can to ease the pain of losing Sage. She’s spent the better part of high school pretending to be something she’s not and hanging out with people who probably wouldn’t notice if she wasn’t there. Crappy dates, backstabbing friends, and Sage’s cold shoulder have taken their toll.
So when her parents propose going away to a house on Lake Michigan for the summer, Grace is thrilled. No more massively bad dates with horrible kissers or lunch with frienemies. Just three months of swimming,
hiking, and relaxing before senior year starts.
But when Grace learns Sage and his family will be joining them, she readies herself for a totally awkward family vacation of disastrous proportions. How can it be anything but awful if Sage won’t even acknowledge she exists?
This is it, Grace’s last chance to get Sage back and unbreakup.
