About the Author
Huntley Fitzpatrick always wanted to be a writer. She grew up in a small, coastal, Connecticut town much like the Stony Bay of her novels, My Life Next Door, What I Thought Was True, and The Boy Most Likely To. After college she worked in many fields, including as an editor at Harlequin, so she knew from romance. Before her death in 2022, Huntley was a full-time wife, mother, and writer who brought the world three critically acclaimed, utterly transporting young adult novels about love, friendship, family, and coming of age. Her My Life Next Door is considered a modern YA romance classic, and its characters reflect Huntley's deep love for her family, who were everything to her.
"Excellent . . . Movingly captures the intensity of first love [and] the corrupting forces of power. . . . As the lines between villains and heroes shift, readers will be reminded how "right" and "wrong" choices are rarely crystal clear." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Samantha and Jase have chemistry that crackles: it's the novel's tender, awkward, sexy, dizzy-happy portrayal of first love that really makes it soar." --The Horn Book

"A teen romance [that] feels like something bigger." --The Guardian

"Serious swoonsville."

"A summer romance with depth."--The Boston Sunday Globe

"An almost perfect summer romance [that] will have every girl who reads the novel wishing for a Jase of her own." --Kirkus Reviews

"Fitzpatrick perfectly captures the heady joys of first love while still dealing with everyday realities" --VOYA
