About

Overview

An International Bestselling Author

Now: On the verge of marriage and a fresh start, thirty-eight-year-old Charlie Lewis finds that he can’t stop thinking about the past, and the events of one particular summer.

Then: Sixteen-year-old Charlie is the kind of boy you don’t remember in the school photograph. But when Fran Fisher bursts into his life, Charlie begins to hope. In order to spend time with Fran, Charlie must take on a challenge that could lose him the respect of his friends and require him to become a different person.

Now: Charlie can’t go the altar without coming to terms with his relationship with Fran, his friends, and his former self. A celebration of the reviving power of friendship.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

“With fully fleshed-out characters, terrific dialogue, bountiful humor, and genuinely affecting scenes, this is really the full package of a rewarding, romantic read.”

— Booklist (starred)

“With his usual grace, Nicholls (Us; One Day) plumbs human relationships, this time offering a singular reading experience about one young man’s fraught coming of age . . . Nicholls masterfully unfolds events. The depth of feeling between friends, family members, and lovers, first time or not - Nicholls captures it all. Highly recommended.”

— Library Journal (starred)

“Nicholls excels at capturing Charlie’s insecurity, the messy exuberance of first love, and the coarseness of teenage male friendships . . . A good deal of fun.”
