How can you not love this book? The sheer nostalgia, the yearnings of young people, yeah, we were there once and wouldn't have given it up for anything. Parents out of site, love and longing near by, could life and summer get any better? No. And Phillips' story, the shelter of young girls and who they are and what they are is essential to the core of their being. I loved this book because of what you gain and what you lose and in all that exquisite romantic elusive detail. Jayne, I love you. Donald Sommerfield
