I make it a point to read as many debuts as possible, with If I Fix You I am reminded why I do so. It is a wonderfully written debut filled with heart and humor and quite possibly one of the best lines in YA lit. No, I won't tell you what it is I don't want to spoil it for you; trust me you will cry all the tears.— Faith
Readers of Sarah Dessen, Cammie McGovern, and Morgan Matson will adore this thought-provoking, complex, and romantic contemporary novel from debut author Abigail Johnson, about finding the strength to put yourself back together when everything you know has fallen apart.
When sixteen-year-old Jill Whitaker's mom walks out-with a sticky note as a goodbye-only Jill knows the real reason she's gone. But how can she tell her father? Jill can hardly believe the truth herself.
Suddenly, the girl who likes to fix things-cars, relationships, romances, people-is all broken up. It used to be, her best friend, tall, blond, and hot flirt Sean Addison, could make her smile in seconds. But not anymore. They don't even talk.
With nothing making sense, Jill tries to pick up the pieces of her life. But when a new guy moves in next door, intense, seriously cute, but with scars-on the inside and out-that he thinks don't show, Jill finds herself trying to make things better for Daniel. But over one long, hot Arizona summer, she realizes she can't fix anyone's life until she fixes her own. And she knows just where to start.
