Could it be true? Instead of a summer playing handmaiden to Daphne, was I being delivered something entirely different--a summer in the spotlight? A summer starring Gil Burke and me?

Summer flings and sexy romances were Daphne's territory. Not mine. I was the one you didn't pick.

I swatted off my hope like a bumblebee, knowing it was already too late. I'd been deliriously stung.

People always joked about summer romances because they didn't last. Summer romances were made out of ice cream and cotton candy, intensely sweet before they melted into nothing. But I'd never thought of Gil as a summer thing.

Gil was my real love, my real first. We were outsiders together, we had each other, we didn't care that we didn't belong.


From Publishers Weekly

May 01, 2017 – It's 1976 in Sunken Haven, a gated beach community on Fire Island. Jean, 16, is ready to dump her longtime beau, Bertie, for a summer romance with Gil, the nephew of another old Sunkie family. But Gil, who grew up in Alabama, has his eye on Fritz, who hails from Louisiana and has spent the last few summers as a guest of her best friend's family. Though not exactly an outsider, Fritz isn't considered part of the in crowd because she's poor. As Gil gets closer to Fritz, Jean's jealousies and insecurities take hold and she fights for what she believes is rightfully hers, with disastrous consequences. Griffin (The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone) deftly weaves Jean and Fritz's voices together to explore their rivalry for both Gil and a coveted tennis trophy. She expertly captures the voice of a spoiled rich girl who expects things to go her way merely because they always have, but Fritz remains comparatively enigmatic. Still, it's a summer read to lose oneself in. Ages 14 up.
