G/A Hautman, Pete. The Big Crunch. Scholastic Press, 2011. 288p. 9780545240758. 17.99.

June never gets close to anyone. She can’t since her family moves all the time for her father’s work. But when she starts her sixth school in four years in a small Minnesota town she can’t help but feel a real connection with Wes. Big Crunch follows the development of June and Wes’ relationship over the course of one year, including another new job and another move for June’s family. Readers looking for a realistic romance without major drama or over-the-top girliness will enjoy this book. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve
