Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The eagerly anticipated follow-up to My Life Next Door is a magnetic, push-me-pull-me summer romance for fans of Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han.

Gwen Castle's Biggest Mistake Ever, Cassidy Somers, is slumming it as a yard boy on her idyllic Nantucket-esque island this summer. He's a rich kid from across the bridge in Stony Bay, and she hails from a family of fishermen and housecleaners who keep the island's summer people happy. Gwen worries a life of cleaning houses will be her fate too, but just when it looks like she'll never escape her past--or the island--Gwen's dad gives her some shocking advice. Sparks fly and secret histories unspool as Gwen spends a gorgeous, restless summer struggling to resolve what she thought was true--about the place she lives, the people she loves, and even herself--with what really is.

Huntley Fitzpatrick delivers another enticing summer read full of expectation and regret, humor and hard questions, and a romance that will make every reader swoon.

Synopsis:

Now available in paperback, the story of an unforgettable summer.

Synopsis:

From Edgar-Award nominee and New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson

A deal with the devil....

Jane Jarvis and her best friend Allison aren't exactly at the top of the social scene at Saint Teresa's Prepatory School for Girls, but they'll always have each other, right?

Wrong.

The day after an epically hideous and embarrassing disaster, Allison comes to school transformed. Suddenly she's sporting a cute new hairstyle, and she has all the right answers in class. With the help of a strangely wise freshman boy, Jane discovers the unbelievable truth behind the drastic change: Allison has sold her soul to the devil. Now it's up to Jane to put it all on the line to save her friend--without losing her own soul in the process.

“Fast-paced and very funny.”—Booklist

“Great entertainment and hard to put down.”—Kirkus Reviews

An ALA Best Book for Young Adults

A New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age

Synopsis:

A gorgeous debut about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another

“One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time.”

The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy, affectionate. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen-year-old Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. As the two fall fiercely in love, Jase's family makes Samantha one of their own. Then in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?

A dreamy summer read, full of characters who stay with you long after the story is over.

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han is a great read. This book is written beautifully through the eyes of a teenage girl who just wants a fun and happy summer with her family and friends. The main character Belly encounters some incredible experiences along with social hardships. What could she do to get people to like her? She tries to impress some of the boys she knows. She becomes jealous of other people that get their attention. The other two books in this series are about summers at Cousins Beach also. I can’t wait to read those too.

This book was beautifully written, a dream come true in the eyes of a teenager hoping for that first, true summer love.
I have yet to finish the series, but I adore it so far.
Hopefully it all turns out as Im hoping its to be in the end.
For sure worth reading.
