Fifteenth Summer

Fifteenth Summer

by Michelle Dalton

Chelsea, age fifteen, isn't looking forward to her summer at the lake. It's the first time her family has been there since her grandmother died, and she can't break out of her funk. But her summer takes a turn for the better when she meets a boy who works in the bookstore. Josh is cute, sweet, and funny...and best of all, he seems to like her as much as she likes him. As the days pass by in a blur of boat rides, picnics, and stolen kisses, she can't believe how lucky she is. No one has ever made her feel so special and beautiful.

But Chelsea knows her days with Josh are numbered. She'll be heading home at the end of the summer, and he'll be staying behind. Will this be Chelsea's summer of love? Or will it be the summer of her broken heart?
