I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a publisher-made book trailer for a Sarah Dessen book before, so I’m a little excited to have found this one. I’m currently reading and enjoying The Moon and More. The trailer is a quick one, but it fits the book. And even though we don’t really “see” Theo in the trailer, I’m happy to have a better idea of what he’s supposed to look like because I’m having a tough time imagining him for some reason. Enjoy the trailer! The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen released this week, so hopefully you’ll get your hands on a copy soon 🙂
Summary (From Goodreads):
Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.
Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo’s sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.
Emaline’s mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he’s convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?
Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she’s going?
Sarah Dessen’s devoted fans will welcome this story of romance, yearning, and, finally, empowerment. It could only happen in the summer.
