So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti

When Brooke's crush, Scott, moves from their suburban town to New York City, she decides to follow him there. Living with her formerly estranged dad and adapting to a new school are challenging, and things go from bad to worse when Brooke learns that Scott already has a girlfriend. But as she builds her new life, Brooke begins to discover a side of herself she never knew existed. And as she finds out, in the city that never sleeps, love can appear around any corner...

If you're looking for a good YA book about love and relationships, then almost anything by Susane Colasanti is a good choice, and if you're looking for something about love and New York City, then So Much Closer is the obvious pick. What I liked so much about this book (aside from the frequent references to some of the coolest locales in NYC) was how Colasanti explores the role that expectations play in a relationship. As Brooke learns, people aren't always who you expect them to be—which can be both a bad and good thing. With Colasanti's signature heart and optimism, So Much Closer is a sweet and satisfying read.
