From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah Dessen comes a big-hearted, sweeping novel about a girl who reconnects with a part of her family she hasn’t seen since she was a little girl—and falls in love, all over the course of a magical summer.
Emma Saylor doesn’t remember a lot about her mother, who died when Emma was twelve. But she does remember the stories her mom told her about the big lake that went on forever, with cold, clear water and mossy trees at the edges.
Now it’s just Emma and her dad, and life is good, if a little predictable…until Emma is unexpectedly sent to spend the summer with her mother’s family that she hasn’t seen since she was a little girl.
When Emma arrives at North Lake, she realizes there are actually two very different communities there. Her mother grew up in working class North Lake, while her dad spent summers in the wealthier Lake North resort. The more time Emma spends there, the more it starts to feel like she is also divided into two people. To her father, she is Emma. But to her new family, she is Saylor, the name her mother always called her.
Then there’s Roo, the boy who was her very best friend when she was little. Roo holds the key to her family’s history, and slowly, he helps her put the pieces together about her past. It’s hard not to get caught up in the magic of North Lake—and Saylor finds herself falling under Roo’s spell as well.
For Saylor, it’s like a whole new world is opening up to her. But when it’s time to go back home, which side of her—Emma or Saylor—will win out?
From the Publisher
Q&A with Sarah Dessen on THE REST OF THE STORY!
Q: This is your 14th YA novel! How has your writing or process changed since book one?
A: Basically, the answer is completely. Back when I was first published, I worked two jobs and had to fit writing in where I could. These days, I’m able to make it a priority. But what has NOT changed is that writing is still challenging, every single day, and I’m always terrified I won’t be able to do it. I’m just as nervous about this book coming out as the first one!
Q: The Rest of the Story takes place in a brand-new fictional town. What went into the decision to create this brand-new setting?
A: I think I was ready for a change. I’ve been doing this for fourteen books, as you said, and over twenty years! It’s good to want to try something new. It’s nice because I can still include my other settings (and I do!) so people can see how everything’s connected. Also in the last few years, my own family began going to White Lake in NC every summer, so I had a lot of inspiration.
Q: Are you at all similar to Emma Saylor? Would you say more or less so than your previous protagonists?
A: I always say there’s little of me in every one of my narrators: there has to be. But Emma Saylor is the first of my girls who has dealt with anxiety, which is something I myself have had issues with since high school. Like me, she deals with it by trying to keep everything neat and tidy. But life just isn’t like that. The. messy parts are often the best ones.
Q: Family plays a huge role in The Rest of the Story. Did you model any characters on members of your own family?
A: I definitely have included traits of the people I love in this book, as well as all the others. I’m more likely to steal a characteristic, though, than model a whole character. People think they want that, to be in a book. But to do that, you have to really emphasize some part of them, and usually they aren’t happy with what you choose. It’s more fun to make most of it up!
Q: What are your “five sentences”?
A: They change daily! But for now: I’m an author and a mom. From North Carolina, the state of my heart. Obsessed with Real Housewives and packaged snack mix. I spend way too much time at Target. Someday, I want to live by the ocean.
Q: What’s one thing you would like to tell fans about The Rest of the Story?
A: This is a story about families, both those we are born into and those we make. And while there’s a new setting, I think you’ll still find a lot of things you recognize. Thanks for making this journey with me. Now dive in! (Okay, that was more than one….)
