What if losing everything you have is exactly what you need?
Kylie’s summer after high school graduation was supposed to be celebrated in Europe, not some podunk town in Ohio. But when the FBI shows up at her parents’ California beach house looking for her father, the life she's known suddenly disintegrates.
With the family assets frozen and her father on the run, the only place left to go is an old, rundown house that once belonged to her great-grandmother. Now her family is broke, her social status is in ruins, and the only internet access is at a café where a nerdy barista boy wants to be her new best friend.
But life has a funny way of teaching its lessons and being catapulted into this new reality might be the help she needs to learn that sometimes you have to let go of everything you know to discover what is real.
With unlikely friendships, family secrets, and a budding romance, Rayna York crafts a heart-warming story about the deception of appearances and starting over in unexpected places. Perfect for YA fans of Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han.
“York's When Life Gives You Lemons Instead of Lattes is a love story about discovering the value of self over all the external pressures we allow to define us. Gorgeous message wrapped in a sweet package.”—C. L. Walters, author of the Cantos Chronicles and the soon to be released, The Story Stars Tell
“A thought-provoking book that takes a hard look at the consequences of having too much, and not focusing on what is really important.”—Gwendolyn’s Books
