Description-

  • For fans of Sarah Dessen and John Green, How to Love is a breathtaking debut about a couple who falls in love . . . twice.

    Before: Reena Montero has loved Sawyer LeGrande for as long as she can remember. But he's never noticed that Reena even exists . . . until one day, impossibly, he does. Reena and Sawyer fall in messy, complicated love. But then Sawyer disappears without a word, leaving a devastated--and pregnant--Reena behind.

    After: Almost three years have passed, and there's a new love in Reena's life: her daughter. Reena's gotten used to life without Sawyer, but just as suddenly as he disappeared, he turns up again. Reena wants nothing to do with him, though she'd be lying if she said his being back wasn't stirring something in her.

    After everything that's happened, can Reena really let herself love Sawyer LeGrande again?

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    August 19, 2013
    There’s a big gap between where 18-year-old Reena Montero expected to be and where she is. Instead of studying journalism at Northwestern after graduating from high school a year early, she’s living with her parents in hot, sticky Florida, taking courses at the local community college and caring for her toddler, Hannah. It’s not what Reena planned, but she’s making the best of it. Then her one love—Hannah’s father, Sawyer LeGrande—comes back to town. In a confident debut, Cotugno structures Reena’s story in alternating “before” and “after” chapters that explain how Reena and Sawyer got together, what brought them to where they are now, and where they could end up, maybe, if they can push through a tangle of guilt, anger, and complicated family connections. Cotugno draws even the minor characters well, and although Sawyer, as a reformed bad boy, is something of a stock figure, Reena is complex and appealing. It’s impossible not to root for the two of them to beat the odds. Ages 14–up. Agent: Alloy Entertainment.

  • Carolyn Mackler, winner of the Printz Honor and bestselling author of THE FUTURE OF US

    "There are those novels, once in a spectacular blue moon, that just feel perfect. HOW TO LOVE is that book. Perfect."

  • Siobhan Vivian, author of THE LIST

    "HOW TO LOVE is epic. I crushed so hard on this book. A roller coaster ride with all the euphoric highs and the stomach-dropping lows of falling in love. The writing is as beautiful as the love story. I adored it!"

  • Entertainment Weekly

    "A vibrant, sparkling narrative of first love and second chances - will remind you that love isn't ever easy, but falling for a great story is."

  • Publishers Weekly

    "[In this] confident debut...it's impossible not to root for the two of them to beat the odds."

  • Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

    "Readers looking for a story of whirlwind passion...and a happily-ever-after drive into the sunset will not be disappointed."
