ABOUT THIS BOOK

It's the summer before senior year and the alluring Angel is ready to have fun. She's not like her best friend, Inggy, who has a steady boyfriend, good grades, and college plans. Angel isn't sure what she wants to do yet, but she has confidence and experience beyond her years. Still, her summer doesn't start out as planned. Her good friend Joey doesn't want to fool around anymore, he wants to be her boyfriend, while Angel doesn't want to be tied down. As Joey pulls away, and Inggy tours colleges, Angel finds herself  spending more time with Inggy's boyfriend, Cork. With its cast of vivid and memorable characters, this tale from the Jersey shore is sure to make some waves.

QUOTES

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, March 19, 2012:
“One can almost smell salt and sunscreen in the air in this soulful and insightful coming-of-age story.”

Review, The New York Times Book Review, May 13, 2012:
“Whatever the resolution to Angel’s story, it is clear that with Bauman— whether she’s Judy Blume’s successor or not—the genre is in good hands.”


From the Hardcover edition.
