We Ship It
Author: Lauren Kay
This rom-com debut has the fierce girl energy of the movie Booksmart, blended with the awkwardness of Kelly Quindlen’s Late to the Party, topped with a thrilling international meet-cute à la Love and Gelato.
Olivia Schwartz has a plan. It’s even color-coded.
The plan is this: get a perfect SAT score, attend a prestigious college, and make a straight path toward her dream of becoming a doctor.
The last thing she wants to do—the summer before her senior year of high school, no less—is go on a cruise. Especially with her parents, younger brothers, and all the unspoken things between them since her older brother’s death so many years ago.
Then Olivia meets Sebastian. He’s everything she’s not: charming, exciting, willing to take risks and run with them. For the first time, Olivia feels like she can have fun.
But there’s a lot bubbling up under the surface on this cruise, and when past secrets begin to come to light, Olivia must face all the truths that she’s ignored for so long: about herself, Sebastian, her brother, the past she thought she understood, and the future she’s always planned.
A fun, romantic summer adventure and an emotionally powerful journey of growth, exploration, and acceptance all in one, We Ship It is perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Becky Albertalli, and will transport readers to the thrilling magic of an unpredictable summer.
