If Skylar Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing separating straightedge Skylar from art school is three months of summer until Skylar's mother loses her job, and Skylar realizes her dreams may be slipping out of reach.
Josh had a different escape route: the Marines. But after losing his leg in Afghanistan, he returned home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be.
What brings Skylar and Josh together is working at the Paradisea quirky motel off California's Highway 99. Despite their differences, their shared isolation turns into a friendship and soon, something deeper.
Compelling and ultimately hopeful, I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios is a powerful examination of love, loss, and resilience.
