If you know or have ever been a townie in a New England seaside town, this book will feel like home, like riding your bike through the warm twilight of summer. Even if you've hardly left Boston, this book will sweep you up and break your heart and then put the pieces back together with tape and bits of string. Kate Allen's writing is both lyrical and straightforward, mature and yet captures the enthusiasm and confusion of being thirteen.
