Waiting on Wednesday: Sixteenth Summer

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Sixteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton
Pub. Date: May 3, 2011

Goodreads says, "Anna is dreading another tourist-filled summer on Dune Island that follows the same routine: beach, ice cream, friends, repeat. That is, until she locks eyes with Will, the gorgeous and sweet guy visiting from New York. Soon, her summer is filled with flirtatious fun as Anna falls head over heels in love. But with every perfect afternoon, sweet kiss, and walk on the beach, Anna can’t ignore that the days are quickly growing shorter, and Will has to leave at the end of August. Anna’s never felt anything like this before, but when forever isn’t even a possibility, one summer doesn’t feel worth the promise of her heart breaking…."

*Hmm....Anna is bored by the prospect of beach, ice cream, and friends? Can't say I relate as that sounds pretty much perfect right about now, but on a more serious note, doesn't Sixteenth Summer look like the ideal beach read? Hopefully it will be in my beach bag this Memorial Day weekend-- just looking at the cover snaps me out of my winter blues.
