This Is Us for teens, this luminous and heartbreaking contemporary novel follows a girl caught between two brothers as the three of them navigate family, loss, and love over the course of two summers. For fans of Far From the Tree, Emergency Contact, and Nina LaCour.
Before she kissed one of the Cohen boys, seventeen-year-old Jessi Rumfield knew what it was like to have a family—even if technically, that family didn’t belong to her. Rowan Cohen was Jessi’s best friend. Mel was the mother she always wanted. And Luke was…Luke. He was Jessi’s first crush, the boy she spent all summer day-dreaming about.
But then everything changed. Disaster struck and Jessi lost her place in the family she loved so much.
A year later, when Luke comes home from college and asks Jessi to pretend to be his girlfriend for the final months of Mel’s life, Jessi finds herself drawn back into the world of the Cohens. Everything’s changed, but Jessi can’t help wanting to go back, even if it means breaking her heart and losing them forever this time.
