Miss You by Kate Eberlen (Pan)

Kate Eberlen’s Miss You is a love story about two people, Tess and Gus, who haven’t met each other properly and maybe they never will…

Tess is 18 years old and about to go to university, but now she is on an idyllic family holiday in Florence. Yet she can’t stop thinking of the motto written on a plate in the kitchen back home, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life”. Her life is about to change forever, but not in the way she thought it would…

Gus and his family are also on holiday in Florence and their lives have already changed dramatically. He tries to be a dutiful son, but longs to escape and find himself.

For a day, the paths of these two eighteen-year-olds will criss-cross before they each return to England.

Over the next sixteen years, Tess and Gus will be challenged by life and love. Separated by distance and chance, it seems like there is no way the two of them are ever going to properly meet… or is there?
