“I was hooked from the very first line of SUMMER OF SLOANE and Schneider kept me entranced with Sloane’s flirty summer romance and the lovely, lush Hawaiian backdrop.” –Shannon M. Parker, author of THE GIRL WHO FELL

WayBackToYouHC

“THE WAY BACK TO YOU was a book that kept me up until midnight burning through a box of tissues.

If you enjoy a good tear-jerker, this book is for you!”–Jennifer Bardsley, author of GENESIS GIRL

Laurie Elizabeth Flynn Reviews SUMMER OF SLOANE

Summer of SloaneI started reading this on a frigid winter night here in Canada, and it was exactly the book I needed to transport me somewhere else. Precisely, to the beaches of Hawaii—and thanks to Erin Schneider’s gorgeous writing, I almost felt like I was reading on the beach with a fruity drink in my hand instead of in my pajamas bundled up with the wind howling outside.

Yes, SUMMER OF SLOANE is the kind of book with the power to take your mind somewhere warmer and more exotic. But don’t mistake this for an airy beach read. It’s a story that tackles so many things with grace, humor, and truth.

Sloane has just finished her junior year of high school and she and her twin brother, Penn, are off to visit their mom in Hawaii for the summer, like they do every year. Only this year is different. Because before she gets on the plane, Sloane suffers a devastating blow—she finds out that her lifelong best friend and her boyfriend, the two people she loves and trusts the most, hooked up behind her back. After expressing her anger through a well-thrown right hook (not going to lie, I loved that part!), Sloane boards the plane with a broken hand and a shattered heart.

But Hawaii might just be the change in setting Sloane needs. After vowing to make it her summer and leave the drama back in Seattle, Sloane meets handsome and charismatic Finn, who makes her believe she can move on from what has happened and learn to trust someone again. But Finn has demons of his own, and Sloane is torn between the undertow of her past and the new life she could have on the horizon.

Right away, I was pulled in to Erin Schneider’s writing style. It’s the perfect blend of heavy and light, serious and funny. Sloane was strong but vulnerable, sad yet hopeful—and the moments where she learned to put herself first made me want to cheer out loud. Her struggles were extremely realistic. Even though she’s thousands of miles from home and the people who betrayed her, the ties with her past aren’t easy to sever, and the good memories don’t just get blotted out because of the betrayal itself. The way Sloane grapples with her dueling feelings made my heart hurt.

On another note, all of the supporting characters here are so wonderfully fleshed out, with quirks and heartaches and hopes of their own. I found myself invested in what happened to all of them.

This is a book with a lot of depth. And if you’re reading it before bedtime, know that there’s a great chance you’ll stay up a lot later than you intended because you’ll need to know what happens next. SUMMER OF SLOANE is virtually unputdownable.

Shannon M Parker Reviews SUMMER OF SLOANE

Summer of SloaneI was hooked from the very first line of SUMMER OF SLOANE and Schneider kept me entranced with Sloane’s flirty summer romance and the lovely, lush Hawaiian backdrop. Sloane is a fierce main character who literally fights for her respect. This debut novel follows Sloane as she rebuilds her life after her boyfriend and best friend hook-up (not a spoiler). Sloane has to figure out where to place her loyalties and how to make room in her heart for both heartbreak and new beginnings. I have no doubt that this book will be in every book bag in the summer of 2016, making next year the summer of Schneider

SUMMER OF SLOANE Cover Reveal

SUMMER OF SLOANE

Sixteen to Read author Erin L. Schneider reveals her amazing cover for her YA debut, SUMMER OF SLOANE today over at Pop! Goes the Reader. Hop on over to see the full reveal and giveaway.

SUMMER OF SLOANE: Warm Hawaiian sun. Lazy beach days. Flirty texts with her boyfriend back in Seattle.

These are the things seventeen-year-old Sloane McIntyre pictured when she imagined the summer she’d be spending at her mom’s home in Hawaii with her twin brother, Penn. Instead, after learning an unthinkable secret about her boyfriend, Tyler, and best friend, Mick, all she has is a fractured hand and a completely shattered heart.

Once she arrives in Honolulu, though, Sloane hopes that Hawaii might just be the escape she needs. With beach bonfires, old friends, exotic food, and the wonders of a waterproof cast, there’s no reason Sloane shouldn’t enjoy her summer. And when she meets Finn McAllister, the handsome son of a hotel magnate who doesn’t always play by the rules, she knows he’s the perfect distraction from everything that’s so wrong back home.

But it turns out a measly ocean isn’t nearly enough to stop all the emails, texts, and voicemails from her ex-boyfriend and ex-best friend, desperate to explain away their betrayal. And as her casual connection with Finn grows deeper, Sloane’s carefree summer might not be as easy to find as she’d hoped. Weighing years of history with Mick and Tyler against their deception, and the delicate possibility of new love, Sloane must decide when to forgive, and when to live for herself.

Erin’s book will be available in May, 2016 but you can add SUMMER OF SLOANE on Goodreads now!
