Product Details


[T]he restless interplay between moon and sea becomes a framework for exploring the uneasy intertidal zone between childhood and adult maturity. How preteen girls negotiate this supremely trying life passage is explored in some of the year’s best middle-grade releases; add this to the list. —Kirkus Reviews

“[A] deeply affecting novel with honest emotion. Propelled by authentic characters, the adroitly woven plot meshes past and present, dreams and reality, and love and friendship. [A]n involving, bracing summer tale for all seasons.”–Publishers Weekly

“[R]ich with imagery and thoughtful contemplations…the way in which Summer ends up being connected to Tink highlight[s] the dreamy tranquility of the girls’ seaside town.”–The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
