Samantha is back with another Day’s YA guest post, and this time she’s coming at ya with a nostalgic ode to the 90s!
Got Mono? Check.
Fired from your dream job? Check.
Parents splitting up? Check.
Boyfriend got a new girlfriend? Check.
Summer before college ruined? Check.
Things are definitely not going as planned. Cassie is now working retail (yuck) with her ex-best friend, Drea, who could like totally star in the next Boyz II Men video. Together, the unlikely pair embark on a treasure hunt involving more Cabbage Patch Kids than you ever thought existed. With a rekindled friendship, an unexpected new love, and enough food court lo mein to last a lifetime, Cassie’s summer may actually be turning around…
This nostalgic coming-of-age story is full of 90s TV, music, and trends that will make you wish for frosted tips and Orange Julius. It will make you laugh and wince along with Cassie as she finds friends, family, love, and confidence in the strangest places. THE MALL has the most authentic characters, and you can’t help but befriend them along the way.
