Front Street Teens

Author Crush!

If you’re looking for something absolutely adorable to read for Valentine’s Day, look no further than the amazing Morgan Matson! Her books are the perfect amount of sweet to satisfy any sweet-tooth. Her books can be on the lengthy side, but the pages fly by as you’re reading.

Cross country road trips are great – except Amy is definitely not ready to get behind the wheel after a fatal car accident that killed her father. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour is heartfelt and cute, but doesn’t make light of grief or recovery after a tragic accident. Amy and Roger both have baggage of their own, but together they’ll make the journey to her new home from California to Connecticut, figuring out how they fit together along the way.

Second chances aren’t always easy to come by, but in Second Chance Summer, Taylor’s family is devastated by news about her dad’s health and decides to spend one last summer together at the family lake house. When she finds out that her ex-BFF and ex-boyfriend are still right where she left them before moving away, she’s hoping to get a second chance.

In Since You’ve Been Gone, Emily would be lost without her sociable best friend, but when Sloane just disappears, she’s stuck… Until a list of bizarre tasks arrives in the mail from Sloane encouraging Emily to get out of her shell and live her own life this summer. Making new friends and getting a new job are pretty doable, but how is skinny dipping or kissing a stranger going to help anything?

Andie always has a plan, but in The Unexpected Everything – much like the title – things begin to go according to their own plans with no regard for Andie’s. Her father gets involved in a political scandal, she can’t go to the summer med school program she’s been wanting to attend, and a new guy appears from seemingly out of nowhere. What’s a girl to do?

If you’re looking for something sweet to read before Valentine’s Day, Morgan Matson is definitely your girl – but if you’re looking for something a little more sarcastic and funny, check out what she writes under the name Katie Finn. Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend is a rom-com that totally reminds me of something out of Gossip Girl with hilarious twists, bitter friends, and cute boys. After ruining Hallie’s life, seeing her ex-BFF is the last thing Gemma wants when she winds up back in the Hamptons after being away for five years. But when she realizes she’s been flirting with Hallie’s brother, she hopes she can prevent Hallie from figuring out it’s her.

Whether you’re in the mood for a sweet, funny read or a sarcastic romp, you’re sure to find something great with both Morgan Matson and Katie Finn’s books!
