Guys, like a year and a half ago, I hosted this Boat Name contest. And now I'm finally doing copy edits for this book, so I know what the main boat ends up being called. I used a LOT of the funny names that BabyGirlG provided, so I did send her the prize box. In the end, though, I stuck with The Possibility as the name of the main boat. I guess first instincts are often best! You guys ALL rule though, and I so appreciate the help. Fair warning: I will call on you again.
The "boat book" also finally has a title (and ALMOST has a cover). It's called Unbreak My Heart. Here's a description:
Sophomore year broke Clementine Williams’s heart. She fell for her best friend’s boyfriend and long story short: he’s excused, but Clem is vilified and heads into summer with zero social life. Enter her parents’ plan to spend the summer on their sailboat. Normally the idea of being stuck on a tiny boat with her parents and little sister would make Clem break out in hives, but just floating away sounds pretty good right now. Then she meets James at one of their first stops along the river. He and his dad are sailing for the summer, and he’s just the distraction Clem needs. Can he break down Clem’s walls and heal her broken heart?
Told in alternating chapters that chronicle the year that broke Clem’s heart and the summer that healed it, Unbreak My Heart is a wonderful dual love story that fans of Sarah Dessen, Deb Caletti, and Susane Colasanti will flock to.
It's out in May--hope you guys like it. Cover reveal coming soon, I promise!
