It's summer romance and second chances, the songs that stay in your head, and the boy you'll never forget.
Two years after rock-song-worthy heartbreak, Virginia Miller is looking forward to a fun, carefree summer. Her friends just landed a spot on a battling bands reality show, and Vee is joining them for her dream internship on tour. Three months with future rockstars seems like an epic summer plan. Until she learns she’ll also be sharing the bus with Cam. Her first love, and her first heartbreak. Now Vee has more than just cameras to dodge, and Cam’s determination to win her forgiveness is causing TMZ-worthy problems for both of them. With cameras rolling, she’ll have to decide if her favorite breakup anthem deserves a new ending. And if she’s brave enough to expose her own secrets to keep Cam’s under wraps.
Breaking Vee’s heart was never Cam’s plan. All he wanted senior year was a new life, in a new town, uninterrupted by the tragedy he left behind. Then Vee swept him into a whirlwind of friendship, musical adventure, and a love he didn’t expect or want. Now, he has a second chance to make it right. But things get complicated when ratings-crazy producers, cameramen, and fans are involved. Can he rewrite their love song with the whole world watching?
Sometimes the last note is just the beginning. Love Songs & Other Lies is the debut romance from Jessica Pennington that Katie McGarry calls "fun and full of heart with a hero who stole my heart!”
Jessica's Top 10 Reasons to Read Love Songs & Other Lies
1. It’s told in Then and Now chapters, so it’s like 2 stories for the price of one!
2. Vee is a strong, kick-ass girl who also has big feelings and insecurities (like all teen girls!)
3. Cam is swoony and brooding in the best possible way
4. Swoony kissing scenes
5. It’s about a girl trapped on a tour bus with the guy who broke her heart sleeping in the next bunk!
6. He writes swoony songs
7. There are easter-egg song references throughout the book
8. Dealing with your ex first-love while cameras are rolling=awkward in the best kind of way.
9. Music. Lots of music.
10. Dual narrators, so you get to read both sides of the story!

**About the Author**
Jessica Pennington is no stranger to the combination of love and drama. She’s a wedding planner, after all. A writer since the age o ten—when she sought publication for her poem about a tree—Jessica likes the challenge of finding the humor in a sad situation or highlighting the awkwardness in a romantic one. She lives in a Michigan beach town suspiciously similar to the one in her novel, with her husband Josh and their son, Rory.
Love Songs & Other Lies is her debut novel.
