In this first installment in a series set in New York City, readers will feel the strong, vibrant pulse of city life as Colasanti (Now and Forever) traces the romantic encounters of three incoming college freshman, who are as enamored with their West Village neighborhood and newfound independence as they are with the boys who steal their hearts. New York native Sadie, thrilled to be away from her “constantly hovering” parents, thinks she’s found her soul mate in Austin, a senior who shares her dream of becoming an urban planner, but his elusiveness is troubling. California transplant Darcy is drawn to a street magician but having been spurned once, she is afraid to let her feelings get too deep. Meanwhile, idealistic Midwesterner Rosanna is inexplicably attracted to a man who works on Wall Street and stands for everything she abhors. The book ends before resolutions are found, so readers will have to wait for the next book to find out whether love conquers all. Ages 14–up. Agent: Emily Van Beek, Folio Literary Management. (Apr.)
