A fake boyfriend. A decomposing cow. A hippie grandmom, an incredible journey and one very important question: What’s the real meaning of love?
In Catherine Gilbert Murdock’s new novel Heaven is Paved With Oreos, meet Sarah Zorn through the pages of her diary and travel along as she embarks on the trip of a lifetime—but realizes she may have left her heart at home.
A simple strategy…
Fourteen-year-old Sarah and her BGF, Curtis, were like peas
and carrots—thick as thieves, true-blue besties. But they couldn’t escape incessant
teasing from their classmates, who constantly called the duo BF and GF.
So finally, in what Sarah termed the “Brilliant Outflanking Strategy,” they decided to just go with it—and pretended to be dating. Their plan? To spend the summer together as a fake couple while waiting for a dead calf named Boris to decompose in time for the science fair. But soon, the tactical move goes awry when the buds discover they might actually have real feelings for each other.
The crazy thing about love
Just when things are getting crazy awkward—and Sarah’s
trying to deal with her emotions—her zany grandma Z whisks her off on a trip to
discover the ancient wonders of Italy.
But as Sarah explores a foreign country and bonds with Z,
she’s also exploring her own heart—and realizes she may have left it in
Wisconsin with Curtis. It’s a tale of first loves, friendship and family. Will
Sarah find her way home?
Get your Oreos!
