from Dial Books for Young Readers/ Penguin-Randomhouse :
Seventeen-year-old Sadie Bell has this summer all figured out: She’s going to befriend the cool girls at her school. She’s going to bond with her absentee father, a famous artist, and impress him with her love of photography. And she’s finally going to get over Noah, the older guy who was her very first mistake.
Sadie wasn’t counting on meeting Sam, a funny and free-thinking boy who makes her question the things she thinks she is supposed to want. But when those Sadie cares about most hurt her, will Sam’s friendship be enough? Sadie can see the world through her camera, but can she see the people who have loved and supported her all along?
Advanced Praise for "Summer in the Invisible City":
"Romano’s novel wanders languorously through Sadie’s summer, treating readers to the same lushly detailed writing that distinguished her previous book...Relationships among friends, family, and romantic partners are the heart of Sadie’s life and her story, and readers will enjoy meandering through the joys and disappointments of this quiet, reflective teen." - Publisher's Weekly
