About the Book

love and leftovers

My wish is 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

When My Mother Takes an Ambien

I have eight hours to devote to whatever I choose.

Some nights, I take her laptop down to the end of the lane

to pick up a Wi-Fi signal from the neighbors,

IM Katie, and watch Linus’s music videos,

while I perch on the rock wall.

Other nights, I sit facing the glowing coals

and read steamy romance novels that Aunt Greta has left behind.

Without Mom to tell me

to get off the computer,

or to come inside unless I want West Nile

I can hang out with my friends (online).

Without Mom to tell me

that weak female characters

are the result of an unimaginative author,

I can read about women who go weak in the knees

at the sight of a cowboy in Levis

and nothing else.

 

But most of the time

I write poems in this blue notebook

because

I feel free

when Mom is out cold.

About the Author

sarah tregayRaised 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.
