Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—This companion novel to Love, Lucas centers on 17-year-old Emmy Martin. It's been one month since Lucas, Emmy's best friend and secret love, passed away, and she is trying to cope with the loss. Emmy hopes that mountain biking will help her forget, but she can't drown out her memories, and she's not ready to talk about Lucas or forget about him. Then her parents deliver a devastating blow: Emmy's mom has been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's. Emmy throws herself into mountain biking harder than ever, hoping to ignore what Alzheimer's will do to her mom and their family. Her goal is to win a big race and get sponsored. Her nemesis, Cole Evans, offers to help her hone her biking skills. Will Emmy take the chance to open up to someone new and accept her life circumstances? Emmy is a sympathetic, believable character, and while Sedgwick shows her coping believably with grief, she keeps the focus on the big race Emmy is training for, along with her growing relationship with Cole. The secondary characters are distinct, but since the story is told from a first-person point of view, Emmy is the main concern. VERDICT Not a first purchase. Recommend this to fans of Sedgwick's Love, Lucas and those who like realistic fiction with a hopeful ending.—Natalie Struecker, Atlantic Public Library, IA --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

"Packed full of competitive spirit and restorative heart." —Natalie Whipple, author of House of Ivy & Sorrow and Transparent

Praise for Love, Lucas

"Just as readers think they know how this story is going to end, a big plot twist changes the tale’s course. . . . Fans of Sarah Dessen and realistic fiction with a poignant and sad slant will find this an enjoyable read. VERDICT For general purchase, and especially for those school libraries needing realistic fiction." —School Library Journal

"A deeply moving tale of unimaginable loss and the redemptive power of love. Sedgwick masterfully delves into the painful details of losing a loved one, breaking your heart even as her beautiful words stitch you back together. Romance and friendship, true growth and authentic healing, this story blew me away. It takes a special book to bring tears to my eyes and make me swoon." —Rachel Harris, New York Times bestselling author

"Chantele Sedgwick's Love, Lucas, is a beautiful story about finding hope, first loves, and learning to live again after the loss of a sibling. With a fantastic cast, and the gorgeous setting of the California coast, this book is one fabulous read." —Jolene Perry author of The Summer I Found You

"A beautiful, moving novel of loss and love. Sedgwick’s elegant prose weave a heart-breaking tale that stays with you long after you have finished the last page." —G. R. Mannering, author of Roses

"An emotional summer of love, hope, and healing! Love, Lucas is easy to adore with Sedgwick’s real relationships, sweet romance, and tale of renewal." —Lizzy Charles, author of Effortless With You
