Gr 7 Up
Each of these four stories of summer flings features an introverted teen who comes out of her shell in the throes of first romance. Readers travel the globe to experience a night of clubbing, a week at summer camp, a tour of France, and a college summer school program. Despite a vacuous-looking cover, the values portrayed in the stories have merit, and the characters ring true. The romance, language, and exploits will appeal to general as well as reluctant readers.
