It's Favorite book Friday and I haven't done one in quite a while. Here's my choice for today:
What happens Next by Colleen Clayton. I have a special place in my heart for Contemporary fiction, when it's written well it can be a beautiful thing, and most of all for the most part they're emotional one way or the other. You laugh, you get angry, you cry. They touch on some part of real life and make me feel something. I love that about contemporary novels.
This book is no different. It is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking. I recommend it all the time now I'm recommending it to you. Just prepare for the feels.

How can you talk about something you can’t remember?
Before the ski trip, sixteen-year-old Cassidy “Sid” Murphy was a cheerleader (at the bottom of the pyramid, but still...), a straight-A student, and a member of a solid trio of best friends. When she ends up on a ski lift next to handsome local college boy, Dax Windsor, she’s thrilled; but Dax takes everything from Sid—including a lock of her perfect red curls—and she can’t remember any of it.
Back home and unable to relate to her old friends, Sid drops her college prep classes and takes up residence in the A/V room with only Corey “The Living Stoner” Livingston for company. But as she gets to know Corey (slacker, baker, total dreamboat), Sid finds someone who truly makes her happy. Now, if she can just shake the nightmares and those few extra pounds, everything will be perfect... or so she thinks.
Witty and poignant, Colleen Clayton’s stunning debut is a story about moving on after the unthinkable happens.
