Augustus Everett est un écrivain « sérieux », considéré comme le nouveau génie des lettres américaines. January Andrews, elle, ne compte plus les best-sellers publiés, mais dans un tout autre registre : la comédie romantique. Aux antipodes l'un de l'autre, ils vont néanmoins se croiser et se lancer un défi. Elle passera l'été à écrire un grand roman littéraire, lui s'essayera à une comédie sentimentale. Afin de trouver l'inspiration, January organise pour Augustus des excursions romantiques, et lui l'emmène à la rencontre de personnes à l'existence brisée. Chacun devra achever son roman avant la rentrée et, bien évidemment, aucun des deux n'imagine tomber amoureux. Bien évidemment...
With one week to win back the best friend she might just be in love with, a travel writer plans the trip of a lifetime in this sparkling new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read. Poppy and Alex. Alex and Poppy. They have nothing in common. Shes a wild child; he wears khakis. She has insatiable wanderlust; he prefers to stay home with a book. And somehow, ever since a fateful car share home from college many years ago, they are the very best of friends. For most of the year they live far apart--shes in New York City, and hes in their small hometown--but every summer, for a decade, they have taken one glorious week of vacation together. Until two years ago, when they ruined everything. They haven''t spoken since. Poppy has everything she should want, but shes stuck in a rut. When someone asks when she was last truly happy, she knows, without a doubt, it was on that ill-fated, final trip with Alex. And so, she decides to convince her best friend to take one more vacation together--lay everything on the table, make it all right. Miraculously, he agrees. Now she has a week to fix everything. If only she can get around the one big truth that has always stood quietly in the middle of their seemingly perfect relationship. What could possibly go wrong?

"A beautiful, lyrical, and achingly brilliant story about love, grief, and family. Henry's writing will leave you breathless." --BuzzFeed Romeo and Juliet meets One Hundred Years of Solitude in Emily Henry's brilliant follow-up to The Love That Split the World , about the daughter and son of two long-feuding families who fall in love while trying to uncover the truth about the strange magic and harrowing curse that has plagued their bloodlines for generations. In their hometown of Five Fingers, Michigan, the O'Donnells and the Angerts have mythic legacies. But for all the tall tales they weave, both founding families are tight-lipped about what caused the century-old rift between them, except to say it began with a cherry tree. Eighteen-year-old Jack June ODonnell doesn't need a better reason than that. She's an O'Donnell to her core, just like her late father was, and O'Donnells stay away from Angerts. Period. But when Saul Angert, the son of June's father's mortal enemy, returns to town after three mysterious years away, June can't seem to avoid him. Soon the unthinkable happens: She finds she doesn't exactly hate the gruff, sarcastic boy she was born to loathe. Sauls arrival sparks a chain reaction, and as the magic, ghosts, and coywolves of Five Fingers conspire to reveal the truth about the dark moment that started the feud, June must question everything she knows about her family and the father she adored. And she must decide whether it's finally time for her--and all of the O'Donnells before her--to let go.

Lucille étouffe sous le poids des attentes de sa mère incapable de subvenir à leurs besoins. Elle n'en peut plus de son frère dealeur, qui la prend pour son esclave.
Winona et Lucille n'auraient jamais dû se rencontrer. Elles se retrouvent pourtant un soir, complètement dévastées, devant le même commissariat. C'est le coup de foudre amical ! Au lieu de porter plainte, les deux filles décident de s'entraider jusqu'à la fin du lycée.
Mais, un jour, elles craquent ensemble : il leur faut un moyen d'évasion rapide. Rien de tel qu'une voiture « empruntée » pour fuir l'insoutenable ! Embarquées dans un road trip à travers les États-Unis, elles vont tout tenter pour changer le cours de leur histoire.
