Fourteen-year-old Jamie will never forget the summer of 1976. It's the summer when she has her first boyfriend, cute surfer Flip Jenkins; it's the summer when her two best friends get serious about sex, cigarettes, and tanning; it's the summer when her parents throw, yes, naked swim parties, leaving Jamie flushed with embarrassment. And it's the summer that forever changes the way Jamie sees the things that matter: family, friendship, love, and herself.

A coming-of-age novel of a teenager in the 1970s. She has rich but free-spirited parents, finds her first love and faces many changes during the summer of 1976. Written so that the reader can remember their own similar events, even at different periods of time. Read full review
