If I Fix You

By Abigail Johnson

Publication Date October 25th, 2016

 

If I Fix You

 

Summary From Goodreads:

 

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. 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 . . .

 

Why I Picked It:

I love Sarah Dessen and Morgan Matson, and if this debut author is anything like them, I'm sure I'll love her too. And, I'm really curious to see what really happened to make her mom leave so abruptly, and what happens between Jill and Sean. Does she fix her relationship with him? and what about this new mysterious neighbor? I can't wait to find out!
