My wishis to fall
cranium over Converse
in dizzy, daydream-worthy love.
(If only it were that easy.)

When her parents split, Marcie is dragged from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She leaves behind her friends, a group of freaks and geeks called the Leftovers, including her emo-rocker boyfriend, and her father. By the time Labor Day rolls around, Marcie suspects this "vacation" has become permanent. She starts at a new school where a cute boy brings her breakfast and a new romance heats up.

But understanding love, especially when you've watched your parents' affections end, is elusive. What does it feel like, really? Can you even know it until you've lost it?

Guest Post: Character Interview with Marcie:

Hi, I’m Marcie Foster. Love and Leftovers about me and what happened when my dad came out of the closet and I got stuck on summer vacation in East Nowhere, New Hampshire without my friends, the Leftovers, my boyfriend, Linus, or my security blanket.

So, you like to write?

I am a compulsive journal writer. I can’t live without my blue notebook. Writing poems in my notebook helps me make sense of my life and how I feel about it, sort of like psychotherapy, only a lot less expensive. And it’s private. Well, unless… never mind.

What makes a good story?

Every good story has a love story in it, like those romance novels Aunt Greta leaves behind and my mom abhors. Okay, so maybe I’m a little preoccupied with the idea of falling in love.

What is a novel in verse?

A verse novel is written in a series of poems. All together, the poems reveal the story.

Who is your best friend?

My best friend is Katie Raskolnikov—the blonde with a pink streak in her hair. Yes, I noticed. Her socks don’t match. We’ve been best friends since sixth grade. Yeah, I’ve gotten used to the hair. And the socks. Did you know she has a tattoo?

Do you have a boyfriend? A crush?

Both. Oops. I shouldn’t tell you that. You’ll post it on your blog.

See there’s J.D. in New Hampshire. Think Prince Harry and throw in a little David Beckham (or other soccer-playing hunk of yumminess) and add an New England accent. Adorable. And he brings me breakfast.

Then there’s Linus, my boyfriend, back in Boise. He’s sweet and 4.0-smart with deep, espresso brown eyes. He’s the youngest of four boys and wears hand-me-down t-shirts that are all soft and huggable. He writes me love songs and posts them on YouTube. Who couldn’t love a guy like that?

I Know I Like Him

I know
Linus is my boyfriend
and he’s adorable
in his own Linusy ways.
I know
he’s my second-best friend
who’d tie for first
if it wouldn’t hurt Katie’s feelings.

I know
how smart he is
and that he’d trade it all in
for an ounce of athletic ability.

I know
his music is like my poetry—
an inward glance and
an outlet for expression.

I know
we could be made-for-TV soul mates
who fall ass-over-teakettle
in crazy, amazing love.

I know
I like resting my head on his shoulder
while we watch movies
on the couch.

I know
I like kissing him in the hall between classes
while everyone else
tries not to see.

But how do I know
when it’s love?

Raised without television, Sarah Tregay started writing her own middle grade novels after she had read all of the ones in the library. She later discovered YA books, but never did make it to the adult section. When she's not jotting down poems at stoplights, she can be found hanging out with her "little sister" from Big Brothers Big Sisters. Sarah lives in Eagle, Idaho with her husband, two Boston Terriers, and an appaloosa named Mr. Pots. Her next book, Fan Art, will be released in June.
