Lipstick Apology - Jennifer Jabaley

Four little words written in lipstick mean Emily must say goodbye to everyone she knows.

One minute, Emily Carson is dancing on her kitchen at an end-of-school party. The next, she’s staring at the news, witnessing the wreckage of a plane crash - the plane her parents were on. Her mother’s last words are scrawled in lipstick on a tray table: EMILY PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

Now it’s fall in New York City, and Emily is desperate to leave tragedy behind. If helps that Darlington High’s swim team champion has his irritable green eyes on her. And then there’s her quirky chemistry partner slash baker-by-night, Anthony, with his classroom jests, delicious frosted donuts and firm just-friends status.

But Emily is still haunted by her mother’s mysterious apology. She must find out what it means. Only then can she choose between the two boys in her life: the one who makes he forget, or the one who helps her remember, and ultimately, heal.

Sometimes goodbye is just the beginning.

I also got the goods from Jessica Verday. One of the postcards is signed, it says, ‘Welcome to The Hollow. JV’.
