For Cricket Thompson, a summer like this one will change everything. A summer spent on Nantucket with her best friend, Jules Clayton, and the indomitable Clayton family. A summer when she’ll make the almost unattainable Jay Logan hers. A summer to surpass all dreams.
Some of this turns out to be true. Some of it doesn’t.
When Jules and her family suffer a devastating tragedy that forces the girls apart, Jules becomes a stranger whom Cricket wonders whether she ever really knew. And instead of lying on the beach working on her caramel-colored tan, Cricket is making beds and cleaning bathrooms to support herself in paradise for the summer.
But it’s the things Cricket hadn’t counted on--most of all, falling hard for someone who should be completely off-limits--that turn her dreams into an exhilarating, bittersweet reality.
A beautiful future is within her grasp, and Cricket must find the grace to embrace it. If she does, her life could be the perfect shade of Nantucket blue.
Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I thought this book would have been better if there wasn't so much drama (no offense to those who like dramatic books). The cover is great, but when I started to read it, I kinda just zoned out and read like I wasn't there. The ending was great!! But there was a whole lot of drama. It is a book worth reading, but personally, not one of my favorites. I would recommend it to anyone who likes the drama of the summer before their senior year. The romance, betrayal, humor is what makes Nantucket Blue what it is.
