A Walk In The Sun by Michelle Zink
Published by Harper Collins on May 3, 2016
Genres: Young Adult
Rose Darrow never wanted to spend her life working on her family’s farm. But when her family is rocked by an unexpected tragedy she has no choice but to put her plans for the future—and dreams of escaping her small town—on hold.
Bodhi Lowell left home as a kid and hasn’t looked back. Years of working farm jobs has given him the one thing he wants most: freedom to travel without answering to anyone. He’s already looking past his job at Darrow Farm and plans on leaving in September—until he meets Rose.
Neither Rose nor Bodhi can deny the sparks flying between them, but with the end of summer looming, they must decide if it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all
Pssst! – Don’t forget to look for the word with ** around it!
Michelle Zink’s writing really grabbed me with her duology, Lies I Told. I saw her name on this book and I was like
Really, there is just something about books that tell the story of that one summer. Rose is forced back to her family’s farm when what she really wants is to be gone from her small town
So, when Bodhi drifts into town (and onto the farm), he represents the life she wishes she had, oh and they also totally fall for each other.
A Walk In The Sun **has** everything you could possible hope for in a summer romance story and I can’t wait!
