Roomies

Roomies

by Sara Zarr & Tara Altebrando

The countdown to college has begun.

 

When Elizabeth receives her freshman-year roommate assignment at the beginning of summer, she shoots off an email to coordinate the basics: TV, microwave, mini-fridge. She can’t wait to escape her New Jersey beach town, and her mom, and start life over in California.

 

The first note to Lauren in San Francisco comes as a surprise; she had requested a single. But if Lauren’s learned anything frombeing the oldest of six, it’s that you can’t always get what you want, especially when what you want is privacy.

 

Soon the girls are emailing back and forth, sharing secrets even though they’ve never met. With family relationships and childhood friendships strained by change, it suddenly seems that the only people Elizabeth and Lauren can rely on are the complicated new boys in their lives…and each other.

 

With humor and heart, Sara Zarr, National Book Award finalist for Story of a Girl, and Tara Altebrando, acclaimed author of The Pursuit of Happiness, join forces for a novel about that time after high school, when everything feels like it’s ending just as it’s beginning.
