Book Talk

For as long as ten-year-old Lexie can remember, she’s spent every summer on the shore with her parents.  Together, they’d comb the beach for treasure, swim in the ocean, and eat food from the grill.  But this year, things have changed.  Her mom and dad are divorced, and, for the first time, Lexie will have to go to the shore without her mother there by her side.  Making the situation even worse is the fact that Dad is bringing his new girlfriend, Vicky, and Vicky’s sons with them—for the whole week!  How can Lexie share her own small slice of heaven with people that feel like strangers—and when everyone arrives, will there still be room for Lexie?
