Dumped by her boyfriend the summer after senior year, teen love and relationship columnist Lu Charles has hit a wall with her writing. The words just won't come to her like they used to and if she doesn't find a topic for her column, she'll lose her gig at hip online magazine Misnomer, and the college scholarship that goes along with it. Her best friend, Pete, thinks she should write through her own pain, but when Lu overhears another couple planning a precollege breakup just like hers, she becomes convinced that they're the answer to cracking her writer's block. And when she meets them-super-practical Iris and cute, sweet Cal-and discovers they're postponing their breakup until the end of the summer, she has to know more. Have Cal and Iris prolonged their own misery by staying together, knowing the end is in sight? Or does the secret to figuring out all this love business-and getting over it-lie with them? One thing is certain-if Lu can't make a breakthrough before summer is over, she can kiss her future goodbye. From the acclaimed author of Let's Get Lost and North of Happy comes a touching exploration of love, relationships and the pain of breaking up.

"Narrator Nancy Wu brings listeners into the mind of teenage love-and- relationship columnist Lu Charles. Wu's smooth voice has just the right inflections for Lu's dry sense of humor as she muses about love and heartbreak. However, through both the narration and the story itself Lu ends up sounding older than her 18 years. Wu's strength in this work is her delivery of dialogue. When Lu interacts with the other characters, the back-and-forth of Wu's voices is engaging. She especially makes listeners want to hear more of Lu as a columnist who asks just the right questions to get her interviewees to reveal their personal stories.
