Are you ready to warm your hearts with a romantic read this summer? We’re kicking off Ten Weeks of Teasers for the YA contemporary romance Paintbrush by Hannah Bucchin. The book releases 7/11/17, but we’ve got this sneak peek and more to get you ready!
And I push all thoughts of them out of my mind until the bell rings, and I practically race outside toward Mitchell’s truck. I don’t know what all his stuttering weirdness in the hallway was about, but I intend to find out.
I’m not fast enough because he still beats me there. If I raced out of school today, he must have sprinted. He’s fiddling with the radio as I approach the car. But as soon as I pull the passenger door open, he sits up straight.
“Josie.” He gazes at me, intense and serious. “We’re going on a mission.”
Get your copy 7/11!
about the book:
Mitchell Morrison and Josie Sedgwick have spent their whole lives at the Indian Paintbrush Community Village, a commune full of colorful characters tucked in the mountains of North Carolina, and they aren’t particularly close—at least, not anymore. Josie wishes she could spend all of her time at Paintbrush planting tomatoes, hiking the trails, or throwing giant communal birthday parties, while Mitchell can’t wait to escape the bizarre spiritual sharing and noisy community dinners. Luckily for both of them, high school graduation is just around the corner.
But when Mitchell’s mother makes a scandalous announcement that rocks the close-knit Paintbrush community, and Josie’s younger sister starts to make some dangerously bad decisions, the two find themselves leaning on each other for support—and looking at each other in a whole new light. Their childhood friendship blossoms in to something more as they deal with their insane families, but as graduation approaches, so does life in the real world, forcing Josie and Mitchell to figure out what, exactly, their relationship is—and if it can survive their very different plans for the future.
about the author
Hannah Bucchin has spent her life falling in love with beautiful places, both real and fictional. She grew up in charming Bethlehem, PA, went to college in sunny Chapel Hill, NC, spent a summer studying wildlife in Tanzania, volunteered on organic farms across New Zealand, and hiked all over Acadia National Park in Maine. When not writing, reading, or adventuring, she likes to daydream about the dog she’ll adopt someday, listen to music from the sixties, and exchange ridiculous texts with her parents and siblings.
