Description-

  • "You won't be able to put this book down." Miranda Kenneally, bestselling author

    Sixteen-year-old Tatum Elsea is bracing for the worst summer of her life. After being falsely accused of a crime, she's stuck under stepmother-imposed house arrest, and her BFF's gone ghost. With a criminal fine to pay off and no way to get a job, Tatum starts a covert freelance design business online, and is soon trading emails with a cute cello-playing client. If Tatum is reading his messages right, her virtual Prince Charming is funny, smart, and talented—and he seems to think the same about her. Too bad he's spending his summer across the ocean ...

    But sometimes, going after what you want means breaking a few rules. Equipped with a new perspective, and assisted by her feisty step-abuela, Tatum is ready to start fresh and maybe even get her happy ending along the way.

    Christina June's It Started with Goodbye will appeal to fans of Sarah Dessen, Stephanie Perkins, and Jennifer E. Smith.

    "A ... contemporary coming-of-age novel loosely based on 'Cinderella,' this book is suitable for teens who enjoyed Meg Cabot's The Princess Diaries." ?School Library Journal

    "The romance is sigh-worthy!" ?RT Book Reviews

About the Author-

  • Christina June writes young adult contemporary fiction when she's not writing college recommendation letters during her day job as a school counselor. She loves the little moments in life that help someone discover who they're meant to become—whether it's her students or her characters. Christina is a voracious reader, loves to travel, eats too many cupcakes, and hopes to one day be bicoastal—the east coast of the U.S. and the east coast of Scotland. She lives just outside Washington, D.C., with her husband and daughter.

    Gr 8 Up-When 16-year-old Tatum Elsea is arrested for being a getaway driver for her best friend Ashlyn and her boyfriend Chase, she is charged with a misdemeanor. Her punishment is a $500 fine and 100 hours of community service. In addition, Tatum's father and stepmother decide that she should be under house arrest for the entire summer, allowed to leave only for work and community service. Luckily, Tatum's stepgrandmother will be around to act as a buffer between her and her strict stepmother. Ashlyn has been sent away for the summer and refuses to respond to Tatum's emails. But Tatum becomes close to Abby, a schoolmate who is doing the same community service. Abby suggests that Tatum spend her "jail" time productively and encourages her to advertise her web-design skills. With very little effort, Tatum ends up with a few clients, one of whom is her perfect stepsister Tillie, who at first has no idea that Tatum is behind TLC Design. Tatum's decision to come clean with Tillie transforms their previously frosty relationship into true sisterhood. The quick changes in Tatum's stepmother's and Tillie's attitudes add to the fairy-tale quality of the story. A glib contemporary coming-of-age novel loosely based on "Cinderella," this book is suitable for teens who enjoyed Meg Cabot's The Princess Diaries. VERDICT A good purchase for large collections.-Marlyn Beebe, Long Beach Public Library, CA
