Synopsis: [Young Adult Fiction]
National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr and acclaimed author Tara Altebrando were born within 48 hours of each other, on opposite sides of the country. They met online in 2006 and have been friends - and fans of each other's work - ever since. They join forces and wrote Roomies -- a novel about growing up, leaving home, and getting that one fateful e-mail that assigns your college roommate.
It's time to meet your new roomie. --When East Coast native Elizabeth receives her freshman-year roommate assignment, she shoots off an e-mail to coordinate the basics: television, microwave, mini-fridge. That first note to San Franciscan Lauren sparks a series of e-mails that alters the landscape of each girl's summer -- and raises questions about how two girls who are so different will ever share a dorm room. -- As the countdown to college begins, life at home becomes increasingly complex. With family relationships and childhood friendships strained by change, it suddenly seems that the only people Elizabeth and Lauren can rely on are the complicated new boys in their lives . . . and each other. Even though they've never met.
