School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up
An entire summer spent living it up on the Jersey shore-what could be more perfect? That's what the seven random teenagers who come together to share a dilapidated beach house thought. But, as is usually the case in life, things don't go as planned. Curt wants to beat up any guy who so much as looks at Avery, yet he has been hooking up with April. Meanwhile, Avery has been crushing on Lucas, but she holds back and remains loyal to Curt-until she comes to her senses and realizes she deserves better. Meanwhile, two of the housemates have a one-night stand and another one is crushing on their landlord. Plus, Sabrina is caught stealing money from her roommates, who all seem to forgive far too easily. There's a lot going on in this book, but all the drama cannot disguise the fact that the characters are one-dimensional, the dialogue is stilted, and the situations are, for the most part, unrealistic.
