Publisher's summary

To All the Boys I've Loved Before meets You’ve Reached Sam—with all the feels of a Taylor Swift song—in this love story in which explosive secrets threaten to tear everyone apart, including best friends (or maybe more?), Natalia and Ethan.

"One of the best YA novels I've read in a long time."—Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of Today Tonight Tomorrow

It’s Senior Sunrise, the epic overnight at the beach that kicks off senior year. But for Natalia and Ethan, it’s the first time seeing each other after what happened at junior prom—when they almost crossed the line from best friends to something more and ruined everything. After ghosting each other all summer, Natalia is desperate to pretend she doesn’t care, and Ethan is desperate to fix his mistake.

When the senior class carries out their tradition of writing private letters to themselves—what they wish they would do this year if they were braver—Natalia pours her heart out. So does Ethan. So does everyone in their entire class. But in Natalia’s panicked attempt to retrieve her heartfelt confession, the wind scatters seven of the notes across the beach. Now, Ethan and Natalia are forced to work together to find the lost letters before any secrets are revealed—especially their own.

Seven private confessions. Seven time bombs loose for anyone to find. And one last chance before the sun rises for these two to fall in love.

A Macmillan Audio production from Henry Holt & Company.

Critic reviews

"Eva Des Lauriers' writing brims with fragile, hopeful beauty—the way I ached for these characters and their huge, complicated hearts as they reveal their truest selves over the course of a single life-changing day. One of the best YA novels I've read in a long time."—Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of Today Tonight Tomorrow

"Utterly charming—full of heart-rending first love and self-discoveries that are the trademarks of the best of YA. Des Lauriers’s fresh voice is undeniable and makes this debut a standout. Natalia and Ethan will absolutely steal your heart.”—Maurene Goo, author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love and Somewhere Only We Know

"I was absolutely swept away by this gorgeous story. A stunning combination of summer, growing up, and young love—you won't be able to turn the pages fast enough!"—Jenna Evans Welch, NYT bestselling author of Love & Gelato and Spells for Lost Things

Don’t usually read YA but…

Loved this one. The story had real depth especially considering the 24 hr timeline! The writing was beautiful and had me invested in all the characters. The narration was engaging and charged. A must listen!

Come for the angst; stay for the ending

This book was so fun to listen to! Both the writing and the performances were wonderful. The side characters added so much and it all just took me back to those heady, intense high school days…
