MY BEST EVERYTHING
Coming March 3, 2015
You say it was all meant to be. You and me. The way we met. Our secrets in the woods. Even the way it all exploded. It was simply a matter of fate.
Maybe if you were here to tell me again, to explain it one more time, then maybe I wouldn’t feel so uncertain. But I’m going back to the beginning on my own. To see what happened and why.
Lulu Mendez longs to leave behind her small Virginia town and her job at the local junkyard in favor of college life in sunny California. So when her father loses her tuition money, Lulu needs a new ticket out—fast.
Desperate for funds, she and her friends cook up a scheme to make and sell moonshine—the homemade, high-profit, and highly illegal alcohol that surfaces every now and then at parties and bars. Looking for a guide into this secret world, they turn to Mason, a boy with a troubled past and the skills to go with it. With Mason’s know-how and Lulu’s determination, the plan just might work.
Except Lulu never planned to fall for a boy with no future. And as the summer burns on and danger closes in, Lulu realizes that getting everything she always wanted might mean losing more than she can stand.
My Best Everything is Lulu’s letter to Mason—but is it an apology, a good-bye, or a love letter?
