Spotlight on New Adult Literature: An Off Year

Summary from Goodreads:

Cecily has always done everything as she was supposed to: taken the right classes, gotten the right grades, applied to the right colleges. But after a lifetime of following the rules, she surprises everyone by arriving for her freshman year of college . . . and turning around. There are infinite possibilities for Cecily’s unexpected gap year. She could volunteer, or travel around the world – but, for now, Cecily is content to do absolutely nothing. What follows is a year of snarkily observed self-doubt and selfdiscovery during which Cecily must ask herself, for the first time, what does she really want to do with her life?

  • This one sounds kind of meh BUT I almost feel like I have to read it with a cover like that. It’s so quirky!

    • The cover is definitely the selling point.
