Author Katie Cotugno makes her debut with the YA realistic fiction novel, How to Love. (For fans of the genre, think Sarah Dessen.) Love hits shelves Oct. 1, but we’ve got an exclusive look at the trailer today. First read the official description, and then check out the trailer after the jump:

Before: Reena Montero has loved Sawyer LeGrande for as long as she can remember: natural as breathing, endless as time. But he’s never seemed to notice that Reena even exists…until one day, impossibly, he does. Reena and Sawyer fall in messy, complicated love. But then Sawyer disappears from their humid Florida town without a word, leaving a devastated—and pregnant—Reena behind.

After: Almost three years have passed, and there’s a new love in Reena’s life: her daughter, Hannah. Reena’s gotten used to life without Sawyer , and she’s finally getting the hang of this strange, unexpected life. But just as swiftly and suddenly as he disappeared, Sawyer turns up again. Reena doesn’t want anything to do with him, though she’d be lying if she said Sawyer’s being back wasn’t stirring something in her. After everything that’s happened, can Reena really let herself love Sawyer LeGrande again?”
