About the Author
Eva Des Lauriers is a California girl who became a diehard romantic when she married her best friend, the boy she sat next to in eleventh grade Calculus. She was a delight to have in class if only she stopped talking and now holds both an MSW and BA in Psychology. As a clinical social worker, she had the privilege of working with the vibrant and complicated teens for whom she now writes. When she isn't writing, you can find her wandering through the redwoods, staring at the sea, or pretending she's in a music video while listening to music. She lives with her husband, their two children, and her collection of kissing books in Northern California.

"Eva Des Lauriers' writing brims with fragile, hopeful beauty--the way I ached for these characters and their huge, complicated hearts as they reveal their truest selves over the course of a single life-changing day. One of the best YA novels I've read in a long time." --Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of Today Tonight Tomorrow

"Utterly charming--full of heart-rending first love and self-discoveries that are the trademarks of the best of YA. Des Lauriers's fresh voice is undeniable and makes this debut a standout. Natalia and Ethan will absolutely steal your heart." --Maurene Goo, author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love and Somewhere Only We Know

"I was absolutely swept away by this gorgeous story. A stunning combination of summer, growing up, and young love--you won't be able to turn the pages fast enough!" --Jenna Evans Welch, New York Times-bestselling author of Love & Gelato and Spells for Lost Things

"Eva Des Lauriers wrote the book I had been waiting for. Angsty and heartfelt. Romantic and smart. From the moment I picked up I Wish You Would I could not stop reading it. This book will make you feel ALL the feelings." --Kristin Dwyer, author of Some Mistakes Were Made and The Atlas of Us

* "Des Lauriers' brilliant debut novel will set readers' hearts aflutter. Romantic, compelling, and optimistic, I Wish You Would isn't to be missed." --Booklist, starred review
