Product Description In this sequel to the New York Times bestseller 99 Days, perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Morgan Matson, Molly Barlow finds herself in Europe on her summer vacation, desperately trying to forget everything that happened a year ago. But over the course of nine days and nine nights, her whole life will be turned upside down once more. . . . Molly Barlow isn’t that girl anymore. A business major at her college in Boston, she’s reinvented herself after everything that went down a year ago… After all the people she hurt and the family she tore apart. Slowly, life is getting back to normal. Molly has just said I love you to her new boyfriend, Ian, and they are off on a romantic European vacation together, starting with scenic London. But there on a tube platform, the past catches up to her in the form of Gabe, her ex, traveling on his own parallel vacation with new girlfriend Sadie. After comparing itineraries, Ian ends up extending an invite for Gabe and Sadie to join them on the next leg of their trip, to Ireland. And Molly and Gabe can’t bring themselves to tell the truth about who they once were to each other to their new significant others. Now Molly has to spend 9 days and 9 nights with the boy she once loved, the boy whose heart she shredded, without Ian knowing. Will she make it through as new and improved Molly, or will everything that happened between her and Gabe come rushing back? From School Library Journal Gr 9 Up—This follow-up to 99 Days is the continuation of Molly Barlow's relationship saga. Picking up after her freshman year in college, this is an engaging novel that does not entirely stand alone. Molly has spent much of the past year with Ian, who has helped her to become a calmer, more stable version of herself. Now she and Ian are off on a romantic vacation together. While exploring London, they run into Molly's ex, Gabe, and his new girlfriend. Gabe is the reason for Molly's fractured relationship with her hometown, the reason for her heartache, and the reason for the abortion she had at the beginning of the school year. When Ian invites Gabe and Sadie to join them for their trip to Ireland, Molly and Gabe find themselves thrown together and trying to keep their past a secret. Cotugno admirably fills readers in on the events of the previous novel without simply providing a synopsis in chapter one, but teens who have read 99 Days will likely be more satisfied than those who are not familiar with the complex relationships among Molly, Gabe, and his family. Some humor makes the serious topics more easily digested.
