Blog Tour: So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti

Today I'm excited to welcome back Susane Colasanti who's latest book So Much Closer was released on May 3rd. I'm really excited for this book of hers because is it just me or does the premise give a off a bit of a Felicity vibe, my all time favorite show!

Here is the book summary:

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... 

During the So Much Closer tour Susane is sharing a bit about some of the places that are featured or mentioned in the book! Take it away Susane!

Greetings, friendly neighbors!  I’m stoked to share some of the inspiration for my fifth book, So Much Closer.

Realistic fiction is my thing.  I like incorporating details inspired by my own experiences to make my books feel as realistic as possible.  So Much Closer takes place in my neighborhood, the West Village. I had lots of fun including my fave New York City places and things in this book.  For my blog tour, we thought it would be fun to share some of them with you.  So here we go!

9.  Strawberry Fields

There’s a place in Central Park where Beatles fans go to remember John Lennon.  They bring guitars.  They sing Beatles songs.  They leave flowers and cards for John on a tile mosaic that says Imagine.  That place is called Strawberry Fields.  And tons of people gather there every single day.

Strawberry Fields is located in a little clearing across from the Dakota, where John Lennon lived.  It’s an intense place where people from all around the city go to worship at the altar of their musical religion.  To honor the memory of John Lennon, I wanted to include a scene at Strawberry Fields in So Much Closer.  I also thought it would be funny for one of the characters to be singing all loudly even though he can’t sing.  Plus, I brought back a character from one of my previous books readers told me they wanted to see more of.  I hope you approve!

This book also has a really great book trailer, it is simple and sweet but definitely leaves you wanting to read the book I think!
