Sand, secrets, Nantucket Reds, and romance. A fresh, feel-good debut."Boston Globe
*"Readers should feel empowered by Cricket's efforts to grow up into a strong, honest, and emotionally intelligent young woman, even as they are enchanted by the romantic and exclusive island setting. This is a natural beach read, but will easily win Howland year-round fans, too."Publishers Weekly, starred review"
Fans of Sarah Dessen will find much to like here, as the charm of this summery yarn lies in Cricket's open appeal. Readers will root for her as she falls down, takes her lumps, and moves forward to her final year in high school, always remembering what she learned under the Nantucket sun."Library Journal"
Just like the moonlit shores of the island where it is set, Nantucket Blue casts a spell that will make you hope the summer never ends."Elin Hilderbrand, author of Beautiful Day"
Utterly romantic and fun. I didn't want Nantucket Blue to end."New York Times best-selling author Jenny Han"
A rich, satisfying novel."Providence Journal"
Several elements in this novel make it a little more than just another summer romance. Cricket's struggle to define herself apart from Jules, her decision to follow her heart, and her realization that she can rise above her parents' divorce make this a story that many teens will find absorbing."VOYA
