Lipstick Apology by Jennifer Jabaley








Summary: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.











My Thoughts: This book was pretty great. The first few pages had me almost crying. Maybe because I've been through the death of a parent and just feeling what Emily must have felt got to me a little bit. Thats ok though, reminds us to put things in perspective. All Emily has left is an apology written out in lipstick. What does it mean?? She goes off to live with her aunt in a whole new world in her eyes. She ends up gaining alot of respect for herself and her aunt over the course of this book. She finds out more about her parents and herself. She realizes what the apology must have been "about."

Plus this one has 2 guys in it, and I'm a sucker for love interests. We meet Owen who is the super popular boy who has his eye on Emily. You know the kind of guy you could never date, because you weren't popular enough. Than there is Anthony who is kind of a loner and keeps to himself but once you really "look" at him you realize there is more than meets the eye. One part of the book actually made me blush a little. Anthony comes out of the bathroom in a towel,,, ohhhhh babbbbyyyy!!! This book was really good. Emotional, funny, embarrassing at parts.

Overall: I liked this one a lot. I finished it in a few days. Emotional at the beginning and the end. A good story! 2 hot guys, what more do you want?

Cover: Its cute. I could see this girl being Emily. Just a regular looking girl. I also like the background image.

What I'd Give It:

I liked this one as well! It was just emotional enough to make me tear up, but not overly emotional. Does that even make sense?
