City Love

Sadie, Darcy, and Rosanna are living together in New York City the summer before their freshman year of college begins. With no parents, no rules, and an entire city to explore, these three girls are on the verge of the best summer of their lives.

Sadie is a native New Yorker. She is hopeful, romantic, and an eternal optimist who is ready to find her soul mate. Then she meets her dream boy: cute, funny, and quirky in all the right ways. The chemistry between them is unreal. Could he be the one?

Darcy is a free spirit from SoCal with rebellious tendencies and unlimited financial resources. Moving to New York City is just another adventure for her. Darcy wants this summer to be all about boy adventures—nothing serious. But how much fun is too much?

Rosanna leaves Chicago for NYC so she can put her past behind her and reinvent herself. The only thing standing in her way is the grand total of seventy-three cents she has saved. Then she meets a guy who wants to show her the glamorous side of New York—a side that she would never get to experience on her own. If Rosanna doesn’t resist, she may find herself in city love.

Told from alternating points of view, City Love, the first title in Susane Colasanti’s new series, captures the moments in each girl’s life when everything is thrilling, amazing, and terrifying all at once … in a way it will never be again.

Editorial Reviews

“In this first installment in a series set in New York City, readers will feel the strong, vibrant pulse of city life as Colasanti traces the romantic encounters of three incoming college freshmen, who are as enamored with their West Village neighborhood and newfound independence as they are with the boys who steal their hearts…The book ends before resolutions are found, so readers will have to wait for the next book to find out whether love conquers all.”

Publishers Weekly

“The strength of this work lies in its reverence for New York City culture and its ability to capture the excitement of embarking on a new adventure.”

Library Journal

“Three teenage girls take on the Big Apple when they share an apartment during the summer before freshman year in college…The alternating voices of the three protagonists are clearly differentiated, and some real issues are highlighted through their different circumstances…Smart girl chick-lit.”
