All It Takes by Sadie Munroe is out in the world today!
I’m excited for several reasons, the first of which is I read this a while ago and now that it’s out I can finally talk with people about how great it is! Second, I had the pleasure of being the developmental editor on this novel so seeing it available is absolutely thrilling. I fell in love with the main characters, Star and Ash, and the way they have to build themselves and each other up in a place that is trying to tear them down. While this novel definitely has these beautiful, sparkly bright moments, I should warn you that it also had me tearing up in public not just on the first read, but every time I read it.
And now you can read it, too!
About This Book:
Nineteen-year-old Star Collins never intended to return to her hometown, Avenue. That part of her life ended when she was nine years old, and child services took her away from her hoarder mother. Her mother chose her stuff over her daughter. That part of her life was supposed to be in the past.
But her mother has just passed away and Star finds herself giving up her summer to quietly clean out her old home. She just wants to sell it and move on with her life. However, things aren’t going the way she planned. With her dyed-black hair and tattoos, she’s attracting almost as much attention from the small town residents as Ash Winthrope, the guy who was just released from prison.
All Ash wants is a chance to start over. He screwed up and he knows it, he’s going to have to live with the guilt for the rest of his life. But he’s stuck in Avenue until his parole ends, and no one, not even his own parents, wants anything to do with him. Nearly out of money and completely out of options, Ash takes the only job he can, helping Star haul stuff out of her mother’s house.
Neither of them expects anything to happen between them, or for their lives to change. But sometimes meeting the right person is all it takes.
About the Author:
Sadie Munroe has been dreaming up stories for as long as she can remember. She is often found staring off into space, brainstorming her next plot, even when she hasn’t quite finished the one she’s currently working on. It’s a problem. She lives in Ontario, Canada, with her family and her dog, Trips, as well as what some people would consider far too many books (they’re wrong). All It Takes is her first novel.
All It Takes is available to order here.
