Sometimes a good-bye is just the beginning?

When Emily Carson?s parents die in a plane crash, she?s left with nothing but her mother?s last words scrawled in lipstick on a tray table: ?Emily, please forgive me.?

Now it?s fall and Emily moves to New York City? where she attracts the attention of two very different boys: the cute, popular Owen, and her quirky chemistry partner, Anthony. With the help of some surprising new friends, Emily must choose between the boy who helps her forget and the one who encourages her to remember, and ultimately heal.

Debut author Jennifer Jabaley has written a wonderful, feel-good romantic comedy with real emotional depth. Full of lovably wacky characters, Lipstick Apology is a heartwarming story about the true meaning of forgiveness.
