In Yerba Buena, two women in early adulthood navigate out of their traumatic teenage years. Sara Foster ran away from home at 16 and has created a new life as a bartender in LA. Emilie Dubois feels directionless and is still an undergrad after switching majors too many times. Nina LaCour’s debut adult novel shows us a love that tries to withstand the complications of life. By the end, my eyes were brimming with tears and I couldn’t wait to recommend it to everyone.— Andrea C.
“This book stole my breath away. Raw and intimate, it follows the lives of two women through heartbreak, loss, and adolescent uncertainty as they weave in and out of each other’s lives. I wanted to hug this book to my chest when I finished.”
