Although it is not a pre-requisite to reading this book, living only 3 blocks from the entrance to Island Beach State Park made this book especially enjoyable to this reader! Within this work of fiction, the author has embedded a good deal of information about this very special and hidden gem on the Jersey Shore. For example, although we have sailed down to Tice's Shoal many times, I wasn't aware (but was happy to learn about) the pump-out boats. I look forward to reading the next two books by this author and I recommend his work to you as a good summer read!

If you like the way it feels to be "down the shore" this is the book to read this summer. You will get a real sense of South Seaside Park and Island Beach State Park through the characters and the fictional story that Mr. Schwartz brings to life in this tale. I look forward to following the adventure in the two novels planned for future release.

With a little bit of history, a little bit of mystery & a touch of romance, Schwartz captures the "real" Jersey Shore in his first book. A must read for true beachgoers this summer. I look forward to Katy's adventures in book II.

My Island Beach: I. A Summer Read is a great summer read! Those who spend (or spent) summers visiting Island Beach State Park in New Jersey will find it even more interesting, as familiar locations are woven into this fascinating work of fiction. You do not need to be a local to enjoy this book, though it is a MUST read if you live in the neighborhood! In this book, the author weaves together many themes ...mystery, intrigue, and suspense...and then intertwines the story with historical facts about Island Beach, NJ . This makes for an original and credible story that flows well from start to finish, while introducing well-developed and interesting characters. There are enough subtle hints and undertones to keep the pages turning, and while the reader may think he has determined the ending, it is not predictable and will most certainly be a surprise! As this book is the first of a trilogy, I am looking forward to reading books II and III. I would recommend this book to a wide audience. Read My Island Beach: I. A Summer Read by Robert Schwartz. It is well written and should NOT be missed!
