Starting from Here
Sixteen-year-old Colby Bingham’s heart has been broken too many times. Her mother is dead, her truck driver father is always away, and her almost girlfriend just dumped her for a guy. When an injured stray dog lands at her feet, she decides to care for it, against her better judgment. But new connections mean new opportunities for heartbreak. Terrified of another loss, Colby bolts at the first sign of trouble, managing to alienate her best friend, her father, the cute girl pursuing her, and even her dog’s vet, who’s taken Colby under her wing. Colby can’t start over, but can she learn how to move on?
(Or, as I like to summarize it, “Girls. Dogs. Trucks.”)
Comment on this post by noon Eastern on Tuesday, May 8, for an additional chance to win a set of three Starting from Here mini-buttons. (Shipping within the United States only, please.) I will post the winners here on May 9. ETA: The random number generator has spoken, and the winners of the bonus giveaway are Kristen Tifft, redheadedbookworm, and Catie. Congratulations!
