Marcie has been dragged away from home for the summer—from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She’s left 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 “summer vacation” has become permanent. She has to start at a new school, and there she leaves behind her Leftover status when 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?

Love & Leftovers is a beautifully written story of one girl’s journey navigating family, friends, and love, and a compelling and sexy read that teens will gobble up whole.


I've read this before but hadn't realized it until I started the first couple of pages. The booked seemed familiar but I couldn't remember how it ended for the life of me.

This book was an fast read and it revolves around family, friends and love. Marcie was moved thousands of miles away from Boise, Idaho to a summer house in Durham, New Hampshire. She was taken away from her friends, her emo-sensitive boyfriend and her father. While trying to cope living miles away from her boyfriend and friends, Marcie looks for comfort and friendship with the only person in her new school that showed her attention, J.D. Things go a little too far, which leaves Marcie confused in what to do with her boyfriend miles away and her new lonely life and only friend J.D.

It was a good story and I, someone who loves a happy ending, loved the ending! So so much.
