About the Book

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beastly, Alex Flinn, comes a new contemporary novel about one girl’s journey to find her voice and let love in.

“A delicious bonbon of a love story.”—New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Nancy Werlin

Jacaranda Abbott has always tried to keep her mouth shut. As a foster kid, she’s learned the hard way that the less she talks about her mother and why she’s in jail, the better.

But when a video of Jacaranda singing goes viral, a mysterious benefactor offers her a life-changing opportunity—a scholarship to a prestigious boarding school for performing arts. Eager to start over somewhere new, Jacaranda leaps at the chance, and she pours her heart out in emails to the benefactor she’s never met.

Suddenly she’s swept up into a world of privilege where the competition is fierce and the talent is next level. As Jacaranda—Jackie to her new friends—tries to find her place, a charming boy from this world of wealth catches her eye. She begins to fall for him, but can he accept her for who she really is?

Critical Praise

“A delicious bonbon of a love story." — Nancy Werlin, New York Times bestselling and award-winning author

“Jacaranda’s voice is quick, witty, and frank, making her an easy…character to root for. Her relationships with her new peers…provide fertile ground for some convincing points about class and stigma. Jacaranda’s romance with Jarvis…is a sweet one… An engaging…tale of underdog triumph.”  — Kirkus Reviews

“If you’re looking for a swoonworthy, sweet romance, you need Love, Jacaranda. Well-crafted. Emotional. Good.”
Melissa Marr, # 1 New York Times bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely series

"Female-centric teen theater novels are surprisingly uncommon; this one offers a satisfying journey to self-acceptance, a sweet, sincere romance, and a bit of mystery…" — Booklist
