Description

“An utterly enchanting book.” New York Times

A summer to remember…

Angie always thought high school romances were just silly infatuations that come and go. She certainly never thought she would fall in love over one short summer. But then she sees Jack Duluth's crew cut peek out over a booth in McKnight's drugstore, and their connection is beyond any childish crush. Suddenly, Angie and Jack are filling their summer with stolen moments and romantic nights. But as fall grows closer, they must figure out if their love is forever or just a summer they'll never forget.

Author Bio
Maureen Daly

Maureen Daly (1921–2006) was an American writer who worked in journalism, fashion, and advertising. Born in Ireland, she grew up in Wisconsin and won an O. Henry Award for her short story “Sixteen” while she was still in high school. She wrote her most famous novel, Seventeenth Summer, while still in college, recapturing with extraordinary freshness and sensitivity an experience that because of its very nature no older author could touch. Seventeenth Summer was chosen unanimously as the first winner of the Intercollegiate Literacy Fellowship and was one of the first novels to target a teenage audience.
