Publisher Description

Fourteen-year-old Jamie will never forget the summer of 1976. It's the summer when she has her first boyfriend, cute surfer Flip Jenkins; it's the summer when her two best friends get serious about sex, cigarettes, and tanning; it's the summer when her parents throw, yes, naked swim parties, leaving Jamie flushed with embarrassment. And it's the summer that forever changes the way Jamie sees the things that matter: family, friendship, love, and herself.

Like hearing a Favorite Song!

Reading this book was like hearing an old song on the radio. I grew up in the 70's in Southern California and remember the days of sunbathing, OP shorts, surfer dudes and grunion hunting. Blau's portrait of adolescence in the 70's rang true for me and put a smile on my face. Her protagonist, Jamie, grapples with a lovable but dysfunctional family with no boundaries and not a clue as to the inner life of their children. Despite all this, Jamie manages to navigate fist love, first sex, a difficult sister, and the perils of teen friendship. It's a light, humorous read but one that is worthwhile. A great book for the beach or vacation.
