9780142417706: Salvation

Salvador Resendez--Salva to his friends--seems to have it all. He's Student Body president, captain of the football team, and has a near-perfect GPA. Everyone thinks that he could have any girl, and go to any college, that he wants. But how could he ever leave his family? After the death of this mother, his father and younger sisters need him more than ever. Then the most unlikely girl in school--shy, quiet Beth--catches his eye, and with her help, Salva starts to see things differently. And when a tragic accident strikes, Salva is forced to accept that life is too short not to pursue your dreams.

Thoughtful and romantic, this is a beautifully written story about following your heart and fulfilling your potential.

From the Author:

Quirky Thoughts From the Author:

I first met Salva and Beth in the middle of a collision. Papers, pencils, the contents of Beth's backpack, and point of view everywhere!

Yet neither of them bothered to introduce themselves. Oh, no; they were both far too busy telling me about each other. According to her, he was one of those "patronizing--and annoying--organized people." And according to him, she was "the walking disaster area."

There was plenty of evidence to support both claims. Though I got no names out of that collision, and I had no idea there was a book coming.

I didn't find that out until Pepe shoved Salva into the prologue. Pepe is Salva's best friend, and he's pretty certain he knows what Salva needs: by this I mean who Salva should date, what sport he should play, what he should do with his life, where he should go to college, and when Salva should be brave enough to introduce himself to an author--aka yours truly--and demand that author write his story.

In this case, Pepe was right: Salva has a heck of a story.

If I wanted to be cheesy, I could pitch it as "Perfect Chemistry meets Romeo & Juliet;" but then you'd assume you know the end. And you don't.

Because you can't. Until you know Salva & Beth.

From the Back Cover:

Salvador Resendez--Salva to his friends--appears to have it all. His Mexican immigrant family has high expectations, and Salva intends to fulfill them. He's student body president and quarterback of the football team, and everyone loves him.

Especially Beth Courant, AKA the walking disaster area. Quiet and shy, Beth is used to blending into the background. But she knows she's smart, and she has serious plans for her future.

Popular guy and bookish girl--the two have almost nothing in common. Until fate throws them together and the attraction is irresistible. Soon Beth is pushing Salva to set his sights higher than ever--because she knows he has more to offer, more than even he realizes.

Then tragedy strikes--and threatens to destroy everything that Salva has worked for. Will Beth's love be enough to pull him through?
