Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eleven-year-old Remy loves Seagate, the island where her grandmother had a house and where her family spends every summer vacation. But this year’s different. Remy misses her dog, Danish, who recently passed away. The usual Seagate traditions don’t feel the same—and neither does her relationship with her two best friends, Micayla and Bennett. Micayla’s family is moving to Seagate year-round, and she’s spending more time with the year-round kids. Bennett’s doing “boy stuff” with new kid Calvin and his snobby sister Claire. Remy takes comfort in the company of Dog Beach—which is where she hatches her plan to bring her friends closer and recapture the Seagate magic. This start of a new series is filled with summer treats, activities, and the spirit of friendship and invention that are Greenwald’s trademarks.

Praise for Welcome to Dog Beach

"Remy’s quiet tale of change and growth marks a promising start to a new series."

--Kirkus Reviews

"Greenwald (My Summer of Pink & Green) gives Remy a candid and relatable voice in this first book in the Seagate Summers series."

--Publishers Weekly

"Dog devotees and aspiring entrepreneurs will find a friend and mentor in Remy, who adroitly combines her puppy love with a knack for business. She’ll also make a good companion for those self-serious tween readers looking for a little sympathy on the perplexing and often unpleasant road to adolescence."

--Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

 

Synopsis:

A warm debut novel about friendship and first love.

Synopsis:

Marleys life is as precarious as an overfull water balloon—one false move and everything will burst. Her best friends are pulling away from her, and her parents, newly separated, have decided she should spend the summer with her dad in his new house, with a job she didnt ask for and certainly doesnt want. On the upside is a cute boy who loves dogs as much as Marley does . . . but young love has lots of opportunity for humiliation and misinterpreted signals. Luckily Marley is a girl who trusts her instincts and knows the truth when she sees it, making her an immensely appealing character and her story funny, heartfelt, and emotionally true.

Synopsis:

Marley's life feels as precarious as an overfull water balloon--one false move and everything will burst. Marley's lifelong best friends appear to be ditching her and her parents, newly separated, have decided she should spend the summer with her dad in his generic subdivision house, with a summer job she didn't ask for and certainly doesnt want. On the up side there is a very cute boy who loves dogs as much as Marley does living across the street . . . but young love can be rocky too, with lots of opportunity for humiliation and misinterpreted signals. Luckily Marley is a girl who trusts her instincts and knows the truth when she sees it, attributes that make her immensely appealing and make her transitional summer worthwhile and satisfying to experience alongside her.
