Overview

On a warm summer evening in the late 1960s, as Samantha DeSantis walks home from an impromptu softball game, she spots a bike in the distance. She watches as the rider picks up speed, drawing nearer. It's Buck Kendall, an alarmingly handsome, mysterious, and charismatic boy from her school. She can't look away as the hope of finally meeting him draws near. In ways she can't yet possibly understand, the immediate connection they share is oddly familiar. Their budding relationship awakens her to the joy and pain of love-and teaches her about the woman she will become.

Samantha learns even more when she dares to break the ice and challenge the wildly popular (and equally untamed) Brian. She learns that boys can be good friends, too. Every girl in school wants him, but to Brian, Samantha is the best girl in the world. He knows that someday, some guy will be lucky to have her.

From two very different types of love, Samantha learns more than she could ever hope or expect. The heart wants what it wants. Why fight it?

    Will the real Pamela Dean please stand up?

    I ordered this book online because I thought it was a new title by one of my favorite authors: Pamela Dean wrote The Dubious Hills, Tam Lin, and The Secret Country, just to name a few. However, this is not the same author. Rather than the heady blend of magical and mundane, dry wit and poetry that I was expecting, I found an extremely forgettable novel about a teenage girl growing up in the Midwest in the 60's. As it happens, I grew up in the Midwest in the 60's, and this novel is so mind-numbingly dull it makes my childhood seem exciting by comparison. The main character is vapid and boy-crazy. The narrative voice is fully worthy of a high-school yearbook editor, but I can only assume this irony was not intentional. Incidentally, iUniverse is a vanity press; this book is self-published and, in my opinion, not worth reading.

    Highly recommended

    It was a beautifully written story about growing up. The language was great. It was the kind of book that you can't leave. You have to keep coming back to reading it every chance you get.

    Pamela's book will take anyone who remembers their first love, or is currently in the throes of it, on a journey of personal fulfillment. For some of us it is a look back and a trip down memory lane. Her words often made me stop reading to smile and remember the days. For others it's a love story similar to what you may be experiencing right now, perhaps a parallel adventure in love. Despite the heartaches of young love, this book is captivating and heart-warming. Pamela's writing style wraps you up in the characters like a warm blanket. So sit back and enjoy the warmth.

    Trite, overdramatic, in need of an editor who knows how to write, etc. etc.
