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.

    " THIS WAS HORRIBLE. I really did not enjoy this book at all. It's not because it was boring in the beginning, and I stopped, Because I didn't. It's not because I had high expectations to begin with, Because I did. It's because this book is so old, my mom could have read it when she was in the fourth grade and you can defintly tell. DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY. love, Caroline "

    " Teen romance written in the 1940's. It was hard for me to get into at first, mainly because the characters are very old fashioned, and one dimensional. The mom stays home, cooks & cleans, takes a nap everyday. The dad leaves and works and expects a drink when he gets home. The sister is going to college to meet a man. Angie - the main character - is young, quiet, doesn't think she's pretty and crushes on the town jock. But in the end, the beautiful descriptions of the summer and the town and Angie's feelings over the course of the Summer courtship is what kept me reading. The ending left a little to be desired, I wish I knew what happened to Maureen and if Angie and Jack stayed in touch, but I ended up really liking the slow, simpler feel of this book. "

About the Author

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.
