In the second book of the So Close to You YA trilogy, Lydia Bentley has discovered that the conspiracy theories about the Montauk Project, the ones her grandfather had told her about all her life, were true all along.

The little town on Long Island really is the Area 51 of the east. Lydia’s hometown has been the site of government time-travel experiments since World War II. Among the “recruits” the Project has used as subjects in these experiments are two members of Lydia’s own family, and Wes, the boy she loves.

What is Lydia willing to sacrifice to save them?

My Teaser

“Here is what I tell myself: he left the shell as a reminder of that night by the ocean. The flower from the tree in my yard, to show he’s close. The leaf, to remind me of what he is–someone capable of finding autumn in the height of summer. And maybe that’s why there has been nothing since then.  Maybe he has delivered his final message–that his life is too different, that we can’t ever work–and now he has left me here in the strange but familiar place.”

    Oooo this sounds good Melissa! I still need to read the first book though! And this isn’t the final line of the book right? It doesn’t end with whoever it is gone and she’s all alone right? RIGHT? 🙂
