by Emily Morra

Fifteen-year-old Liv Morgan has moved with her mom from Buffalo to rural Kansas after her parents’ divorce in the late-1980s. Soon after she arrives, she meets Jack Lindt, who very quickly becomes her best friend and boyfriend. But the innocence and joy of young love is suddenly interrupted when a family tragedy pulls Jack’s life off course. Sunflower is a story about a romance that blossoms between two friends that is ultimately put to the test as Jack’s family deals with death, abuse, alcoholism, and deep family secrets. He loves Liv, but he often feels that she is better off without him. As his depression and angst consume him, he gains strength from reliving the memories of their early days together, and revelling in their surprise encounters with each other. Emily Morra has crafted a novel filled with suspense, friendship, teen romances, and family drama. Readers will cheer on the Lindt brothers as they attempt to run the farm, and will wait with intense anticipation along with Jack in his newly-planted sunflower field. Will Liv return to him? Will the mystery of Mr. White and the Lindt family be solved? There is much to be uncovered within the pages of Sunflower.

“The author creates two compelling characters in Liv and Jack, and we root for them from the beginning.” —Kirkus Reviews
