For Lucy, the Jersey Shore isn't just the perfect summer escape, it's home. As a local girl, she knows not to get attached to the tourists. They breeze in during Memorial Day weekend, crowding her coastal town and stealing moonlit kisses, only to pack up their beach umbrellas and empty promises on Labor Day. Still, she can't help but crush on charming Connor Malloy. His family spends every summer next door, and she longs for their friendship to turn into something deeper.
Then Superstorm Sandy sweeps up the coast, bringing Lucy and Connor together for a few intense hours. Except nothing is the same in the wake of the storm, and Lucy is left to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and her broken home. Time may heal all wounds, but with Memorial Day approaching and Connor returning, Lucy's summer is sure to be filled with fireworks.
I love a good summer tale, especially when the previous summer ended in conflict between the MCs. This quick-read YA novel fit the bill.
Lucy grew up on the Jersey shore with her parents and twin brother Liam. There's growing tension between her and Liam just as there is with her ex best friend Meghan. Then there's Connor - the boy of her summer dreams - the one she spent an intense few hours with - the boy who never called her again.
This summer Lucy is back and ready to face her fears, her enemies, and the truth about it all.
