A Long Way from You

Summary from Amazon.com:

For too long, Kitsy has had to satisfy her dreams of becoming a real artist by giving her friends makeovers before prom. So when her best friend Corrinne's family offers to sponsor her for a summer art course in New York City, Kitsy bids a temporary good-bye to Texas to say hello to the West Village. 

Between navigating the subway and the New Yorkers—namely, the Art Boy who has a nice trick of getting under her skin—Kitsy knows that this summer is going to be about a lot more than figure drawing.


I really enjoyed Gwendolyn's first book, Where I Belong, and this one sounds like it will in the same lighthearted vein. Even though A Long Way from You is set in NYC, I'm sure it will still have plenty of southern charm and Texas accents. I'm hoping there'll be a cowboy again too... you can never have too many of those!
