New novel and new website coming soon

My new novel, Kissing in America, will be published by HarperCollins on May 26th, 2015! Here’s the bound galley alongside the handwritten first draft.


The official description:

“In the two years since her father died, sixteen-year-old Eva has found comfort in reading romance novels—118 of them, to be exact—to dull the pain of her loss that’s still so present. Her romantic fantasies become a reality when she meets Will, who understand Eva’s grief. Unfortunately, after Eva falls head-over-heels for him, he picks up and moves to California without any warning. Not wanting to lose the only person who has been able to pull her out of sadness—and, perhaps, her shot at real love—Eva and her best friend, Annie, concoct a plan to travel to the west coast to see Will again. As they road trip across America, Eva and Annie confront the complex truth about love.

In this honest and emotional journey, readers will experience the highs of infatuation and the lows of heartache as Eva contends with love in all of its forms.”

Advance praise:

“Kissing in America is a wonderful novel about friendship, love, travel, life, hope, poetry, intelligence, and the inner lives of girls — all the things, to put it simply, that I like best in a book. I loved it.” –Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

“That Margo Rabb can write a story so gorgeous, funny, and joyous that is also unsentimental and honest is a testament to her skill and to her heart. I loved everything about Eva and the supporting cast in this beautiful novel.” –Sara Zarr, author of The Lucy Variations

“Wonderful…Margo Rabb has created nothing less than a women’s map of American mythologies.”
E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars

I hope you enjoy the new book! I’ll be launching a new website in February–in the meantime, you can find me on Twitter: @margorabb.
