Elizabeth Eulberg & Brigid Kemmerer | Past Perfect Life & Call It What You Want

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the bookshop.

Elizabeth Eulberg and Brigid Kemmerer will join us to read from and sign their new young adult novels, Past Perfect Life and Call It What You Want

Eulberg and Kemmerer will be in conversation with Sara Zarr.

In Past Perfect Life small-town Wisconsin high school senior Allison Smith loves her life the way it is--spending quality time with her widowed father and her tight-knit circle of friends, including best friend Marian and maybe-more-than-friends Neil. Sure she is stressed out about college applications . . . who wouldn't be? In a few short months, everything's going to change, big time.
But when Ally files her applications, they send up a red flag... because she's not Allison Smith. And Ally's--make that Amanda's--ordinary life is suddenly blown apart. Was everything before a lie? Who will she be after? And what will she do as now comes crashing down around her?

In Call It What You Want Rob goes from popular lacrosse player to social pariah, whis dad is caught embezzling funds from half the town. Even worse, his father's failed suicide attempt leaves Rob and his mother responsible for his care.
Everyone thinks of Maegan as a typical overachiever, but she has a secret of her own after the pressure got to her last year. And when her sister comes home from college pregnant, keeping it from her parents might be more than she can handle.
When Rob and Maegan are paired together for a calculus project, they're both reluctant to let anyone through the walls they've built. But when Maegan learns of Rob's plan to fix the damage caused by his father, it could ruin more than their fragile new friendship.
