Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "In one impulsive moment the summer before they leave for college, overachievers Scarlett and David plunge into an irresistible swirl of romance, particle physics, and questionable decisions. Scarlett and David have known each other all their lives in small-town Graceville, Colorado, where David is just another mountain in the background, until, one day, he is suddenly so much more than part of the landscape. Magnetic, spontaneous, David is a gravitational force. And Scarlett, pragmatic, wry, eye on the future, welcomes the whirlwind he brings even as she resists it. Moving between the present and the past, this is the story of a seemingly grounded girl who's pulled into a lightning-strike romance with an electric-charged boy, and the enormity of the aftermath. Smart, bold, and unconventionally romantic, Shana Youngdahl's debut explores grief, guilt, and reconciling who you think you need to be with the person you've been all along. It's an aching, transporting reminder that between the past that shapes us and the unknowable future, we have only the present to forgive ourselves and forge ahead"--Dust jacket.

    Scarlett and David were the brightest academic stars in their tiny Colorado town, but until one electric moment just weeks before leaving to opposite coasts for college, they weren't lovers. David, Scarlett would tell you, was an ass. Scarlett had dated David's best friend, and was still nursing feelings for him. Now, physics aficionado Scarlett splices together different time lines to unspool the events that have radically altered the expected trajectories of both her and David's lives. As she explains, her story is but a series of "nows." These concurrent storylines take a bit of initial concentration to sort out, but reward the reader with good plot twists and surprising emotional connections. If secondary characters emerge a bit piecemeal, it serves to cement the fact that this is Scarlett's story, singularly told. The issues explored—academic competition, substance abuse, college life, unwanted pregnancy—will be of interest to older teens. Similarly, the writing is John Green–like, intelligent and peppered with witty repartee. Recommended for sophisticated readers. Grades 10-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
