Read This Now: ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER

Isla and the Happily Ever After

Anna had Paris, Lola had San Francisco, and Isla...Isla isn't sure. She's caught between New York and France, between love and fear, and she doesn't know what the right choice is. She's been in love with Joshua Wasserstein since day one, but he's never even glanced at her...or has he? 

Stephanie Perkins has written another amazing, heartbreaking novel that deserves all the accolades it will certainly receive. Don't miss out--read it before it hits all the award lists!

  Request it here so you can see what the fuss is all about.
