Van Sato’s got labels. Tourettes, ADHD, SPD – words that have defined his existence since the time he was old enough to know what they meant. Now, Van wants to prove he’s more than an acronym, a syndrome, a problem kid. He takes a summer job as a day camp counselor to prove he’s capable of independence and moving on to the next phase in his life. Maybe, he might even make a friend while there. Someone who’s got just as many or even more labels than him. Someone who understands what it’s like. 

Tabby Dubanowksi wants to forget about everything, the hospitalization, the judgment, the whispers behind her back. As a camp counselor, she will be admired, looked up to, and able to help people who don’t know anything about her old life. Tabby wants a fresh start and a chance to re-ignite her passion for film-making, if only for one summer. 

After running away from their pasts, Van and Tabby collide in a storm cloud of attraction laced with self-doubt, insecurity, shame, and blame. Now, with Van feeling like he might have to quit his job, and Tabby struggling to quell the urge to cut, they will struggle to find themselves in a world designed to keep them apart.
Cover Love (Why you love the cover)

I can go on forever about the cover for You, Me, & Letting Go! because I love it so darn much. Overall, it’s adorable and eye catching, and I love the colors (teal is the color for Tourette awareness). I can tell careful consideration was put into making this cover because it represents my story and characters so well. I love having Van and Tabby both on the cover, and they are pretty much exactly how I imagined them. Any stock photo of random teenagers could’ve been used to toss on the cover, but the designer (Melissa Liban) made sure to find the perfect two that fit. And the background is awesome because it’s partial instructions on how to create something in the book. If this wasn’t my book and I saw the cover, I’m quite certain it’d draw me in and ask me to read it.
