SUMMER OF LOVE occurs right after Love's aunt Mable dies, leaving a huge hole in Love's life. She decides to attend the last big hurrah of the year with Jacob. She arrives late at the Vineyard and needs Arabella to cover for her at the cafe.

The summer, once so full of promise, has a very rocky start.

Love discovers that Mable left her clues around the island, a mini treasure hunt of life that has Love thinking about second chances. With so many ideas and choices floating around in Love's mind, it's a wonder that she gets anything accomplished. What will she do with her life now that college applications are looming before her? Should she track down her mother?

SUMMER OF LOVE continues Love's adventures, leaving the book open-ended for the next chapter in Love's life. Love is a wonderful character that readers will immediately find a connection with. Emily Franklin poses great questions that leave the reader thinking long after finishing the book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451220404, Paperback)

After a rough spring semester at Hadley Hall, Love Bukowski is ready for some sun on Martha's Vineyard. Running her Aunt Mable's cafe might not sound glamorous, but when she's working with her best friend, Arabella, anything can be fun. Plus, Mable's set up a treasure map of clues for her to find-each one bringing Love closer to the truth about her family history.

But now that those pieces of her past are finally fitting together, Love's future isn't clear. College and senior year are ahead, but the boys of summer are more appealing than ever. Surprises, sun, summer love-no matter what happens, the next three months will be ones to write home about.
