Only one rule - it must be set in the USA (otherwise, you know, I'd have gone with Melina Marchetta).
This is my shortlist
If I stay by Gayle Foreman
The Secret Year by Jennifer R Hubbard
Looking for Alaska by John Green
All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab
Which would you pick? Or do you have a better suggestion?
Thanks and have a great weekend.
