Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlieat least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.
And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them . . .
Sexy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction s greatest writers.
Praise for The Infinite Moment of Us
"The scenes of sexual intimacy are described with innocently erotic frankness, offering an ideal (if not idealized) model for readers on the cusp; this is Forever for a new generation, offering character depth Cath and Michael never achieved. Summer love has never been so good."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"In contrast to unhealthy depictions of sex and relationships that teenagers (and adults) are often exposed to in media and entertainment, Myracle offers up a passionate romance built on a bedrock of love, respect, and trust. And it s difficult to see that as a bad thing."
"Two mature recent high school graduates fall in love and bring out the best in each other in Lauren Myracle's thoughtful exploration of an intimate relationship...the relationship between Wren and Charlie always remains realistic and involving."
"This charming romance has multidimensional characters, straightforward sexuality, and a pace that lets readers fall in love with the main characters. Myracle expertly captures the intense connection of first love, from the need to spend every moment together to trying to figure out how to communicate with one another."
School Library Journal
"The single-focus intensity of Wren and Charlie s feelings is spot-on for the age group... chapters move between both their perspectives as they grow into the relationship, offering readers of both sexes a rather compelling example of the how-to s of intimacy."

Myracle is no stranger to having her work challenged on the basis of “inappropriate” content, and this love story between two high school graduates may attract similar attention. But underlying some explicit and erotic scenes in which Wren Gray and Charlie Parker open their bodies to each other—along with their hearts, minds, and souls—is a rewarding account of two young people whose insecurities and personal histories weigh on the romance they work to build with each other. Poised and accomplished, Wren has always done what her parents have expected of her, while Charlie is a foster child, self-conscious about his often unpleasant upbringing, but fiercely protective of his current family. Will some readers be unable to see past the sex in the book? Yes. Will they be adults? Probably. In contrast to unhealthy depictions of sex and relationships that teenagers (and adults) are often exposed to in media and entertainment, Myracle offers up a passionate romance built on a bedrock of love, respect, and trust. And it’s difficult to see that as a bad thing. Ages 14–up. Agent: Barry Goldblatt, Barry Goldblatt Literary. (Aug.)
