Publisher Description:
Three months. Three guys. One amazing summer.

Summer Smith is in for the best summer of her life. Between the cold weather and her boyfriendless existence in Minnesota, Summer is ready for sun, sand, and boys in the Florida Keys. And by the end of the first day, she has more than enough to keep her busy:

Adam, the senator's son, has looks, power, and all the money in the world.

Diver, the mystery man, is mellow, intriguing, and definitely unique.

And Seth, the perfect guy...only he has a girlfriend.

But with new friends, cute guys, and miles of hot white sand, Summer's in for more trouble than she thinks....

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2008 September)

Gr 7–10— Summer Smith is thrilled to be asked to spend the summer in Florida with her aunt Mallory and cousin Diana, and her trip starts off with a real bang when she meets gorgeous Seth on the plane and ends up with a dreamy kiss. It's pretty clear that Diana resents her presence and seems to be angry for no reason, but sensitive, nice Summer gives her the benefit of the doubt and forges ahead making new friends, getting a job, and meeting lots of handsome guys, including Diana's former boyfriend. If only the summer would never end and she didn't have to return to Minnesota. There are several references to sex and alcohol. This is an overly long and totally predictable teen romance, but girls will enjoy this beachy paperback and will pass it along to friends. It may be formulaic, but it works.—Susan Riley, Mount Kisco Public Library, NY
