A contemporary Young Adult novel
3 Ex-Best Friends
SYNOPSIS:Back in middle school, Alice, Summer, and Tiernan were inseparable.
They were also the number one fans of the rock band Level3.
But when the band broke up, so did the girls' friendship. Alice spent high school with her nose buried in books, Summer was in the popular crowd, and Tiernan was lucky if she made it to class. Now, just as the girls are about to graduate, Level3 announces a one-time-only reunion show. Even though it's 2,000 miles away, Alice buys three tickets on impulse—and as it turns out, Summer and Tiernan have their own reasons for wanting to get out of town. And thanks to Alice's graduation gift (a newly refurbished '78 VW van affectionately known as the Pea-Pod) they've got the perfect vehicle to get them there. But on their cross-country drive, the girls hit more than just a few bumps in the road. Will their friendship get an encore or is the show really over?
WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT "REUNITED":Winner of the 2011 SCBWI Book Launch Award
"Like most road trips, nothing goes as planned and, mixing it with three ex-best friends, it turns into an adventure worth reading." ~ SLJ
This book is AMAZING! One of my favorite books of 2012, I swear. If you're looking for a great contemporary read, I highly suggest Reunited. If you're looking for a book about ex-friends getting back together, I highly suggest Reunited. If you're a music lover, read Reunited. If you're just a book lover, READ REUNITED. ~ Gypsy Book Reviews
Reunited is one of those stories that stays with you for some time. Hilary does an excellent job of grabbing you and sucking you in so much so you don't realize your at the end of the story until you turn the page and there are no more pages. I truly loved this book and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT AS A BEACH READ! ~ Diary of a Book Addict
Their road trip is at once hilarious and poignant, the dialogue spot-on, the friendships raw and real. REUNITED is a great ride! ~Diana Renn, Author, TOKYO HEIST
If you're a fan of contemps and road trips and laughing, definitely don't miss out on Reunited by Hilary Weisman Graham. ~ Tara (Hobbitsies Reviews)
Hilary Weisman Graham's debut is a fun, bubbly and heartwarming coming-of-age story of friendship, love, and ultimately, finding yourself and being true to who you are --- no matter what. It's one of those books that has a little bit of everything, for everyone... one of my favorite YA Contemporary reads of 2012 so far! ~ The Teen Book Guru
Best Girl Bonding I have read in a while! ~ Mary (Bookhounds)
A road trip, a cool rock band reuniting for one show and one show only, an ancient tricked-out VW van, and three ex-BFFs -- all these fun ingredients, and Hilary Weisman Graham's sparkling writing, make this book the perfect summer read! Their road trip is at once hilarious and poignant, the dialogue spot-on, the friendships raw and real. REUNITED is a great ride! ~ Belmont Reader
What an amazingly written book! Graham has done the very difficult job of capturing the distinct voices of three very different girls. ~ Katie McGarry, Author PUSHING THE LIMITS
So, you ever read a book that makes you want to go back to high school? No? Me either. But this makes me want to go back to the summer between graduation and college. It also makes me want to send this book to a best friend that I can no longer even call friend. This was a great coming of age story, road trip story and contemporary YA fiction. This is one I'll want to read again. ~ Heather (Buried in Books)
What could be better than a cross country road trip with your three best friends, or ex-best friends, as the case may be? This book packs so much fun, mayhem, laughter, tears, and girlbonding into one amazing story. I love a book that can deliver unique, kick ass characters, crazy adventures, and music. Reunited delivers all of these in spades! ~ Sarah (The Book Life)
I loved this book! (Understatement.) I'm usually not the type to be so entranced by a road trip novel, but I guess I just haven't been reading the good ones. ~ Charlotte (Charissa Books)
Once in a great while, a book comes a long that I feel I can really relate to. Reunited is one of those books. Hilary Weisman Graham did a great job of digging in to her inner teenager and bringing out genuine feelings and issues that face teenage girls without any over the top emotions. This book was definitely a breath of fresh air and kudos to Hilary Weisman Graham for bringing very believable characters to life in this lovely book. ~ Jamie (Borderline Phenomenal)
This book has it all: wit, great prose, lots of true-to-life teenage angst, rock stars, and a terrific plot. I can't wait to see the movie version! ~ Lee Harrington, Author REX AND THE CITY
The ultimate road-trip, friendship ride! Made me want to hop into the car with some of my friends and head cross-country. Alice, Summer, and Tiernan are unique, well-developed, and likable characters. I enjoy this book a lot. ~ Colleen Clayton, Author WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
