Back When You Were Easier to Love
Emily Wing Smith
April 28, 2011

WHO ZAN IS: Blow-your-mind brilliant. Stop-your-heart gorgeous. Hold-your-breath clever. WHO ZAN WAS: Joy’s boyfriend. WHY JOY NEEDS HIM BACK: So she can breathe again. WHAT THAT MEANS: An elaborate road trip involving a SAAB 900, Sprite, and Barry Manilow. Oh, and Noah, Zan’s irritating-but-almost-charming ex-best friend. Original and insightful, quirky and crushing, Joy’s story is told in surprising and artfully shifting flashbacks between her life then and her life now. Exquisite craft and wry, relatable humor signal the arrival of Emily Wing Smith as a breakout talent.

I'm so excited to read this one! I fell in love with the summary as soon as I read it. It should be interesting to go on this adventure with Joy to get her boyfriend back. I have a feeling something is going to happen with Noah. I can't wait until April! I adore this cover, it's so cute. I love how it's cartoon-ish but the two people are pictures. Love!



  1. I can't help looking at that cover and hoping the footstool doesn't skid out from under their feet! I find them a little wobbly. It is rather a sweet picture though.

  2. Haha!! You're so right, they are incredibly wobbly. It must be double the wobble since there's two of them.

  3. this book sounds really awesome! and i love the cover - i think it'll stand out.

    i've just added it to my goodreads wishlist. shame it's so far away...

  4. I love this cover. It makes me think of that movie 300 Days of Summer

  5. Hey Nomes! Yes, I totally agree, I wish it came out sooner.

    Hi Juju! I know what movie your talking about, one of my all time favorites actually. Yeah it does remind me of that now! :)
