Waiting on Wednesday: The Summer Before Boys

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


The Summer Before Boys by Nora Raleigh Baskin 
Pub. Date: May 10, 2011


Goodreads says, "Julia and Eliza are best friends, spending the summer together. Julia's mother is serving in the National Guard and Julia spends all of her time trying not to think about what could happen. So the girls lose themselves in their summer, hanging out at the resort where Eliza's father works. But when they meet a new boy, neither one of them is prepared for what it does to their friendship. Nora Raleigh Baskin delivers a poignant look at the way a first crush can come between best friends and the importance of hanging on to the time you have as a kid before rushing into growing up."


*It comes with no surprise that I am obsessed with summer/beach reads and this one sounds like something I'd enjoy. Plus, I love the last line in the synopsis about holding onto your childhood for as long as you can. Isn't that the truth!?!
