15832932 What I Thought Was True
Author: Huntley Fitzpatrick  
Publisher: Dial
Release Date: April 15, 2013

Synopsis from Goodreads:
From the author of My Life Next Door comes a swoony summertime romance full of expectation and regret, humor and hard questions.

Gwen Castle's Biggest Mistake Ever, Cassidy Somers, is slumming it as a yard boy on her Nantucket-esque island this summer. He's a rich kid from across the bridge in Stony Bay, and she hails from a family of fishermen and housecleaners who keep the island's summer people happy. Gwen worries a life of cleaning houses will be her fate too, but just when it looks like she'll never escape her past—or the island—Gwen's dad gives her some shocking advice. Sparks fly and secret histories unspool as Gwen spends a gorgeous, restless summer struggling to resolve what she thought was true—about the place she lives, the people she loves, and even herself—with what really is.

A magnetic, push-me-pull-me romance with depth, this is for fans of Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Deb Caletti.

Why I'm Excited:

I absolutely loved My Life Next Door and cannot wait to read what this author has dreamed up next. I'm such a fan of books with idyllic summer settings, especially Nantucket, and have always been a sucker for the "wrong side of the tracks" + blue blood = love storyline. I love this charming cover, too. I seriously cannot wait to read this and am sure it is going to be a very popular choice today.
