Despite being published 22 years ago, this book is fairly modern in its sensibilities, although the plot seems straight out of the old 80's after-school specials. (In fact, I think I saw a movie, either based on this book or very close in story line, starring Megan Follows of Anne of Green Gables fame when I was a kid.) Seventeen-year-old Leslie and Peter, who have known each other for years, are just sorting the ins & outs of their blossoming physical relationship when they discover that Peter's father and Leslie's mother are having an affair. This book is not one of Norma Klein's finest, but many aspects of the teens' relationship still ring true today, and the writing is only slightly dated. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449701956, Mass Market Paperback)

Peter and Leslie's families have had beach houses near each other for years, so it seemed only natural when their friendship turned to romance. Their perfect summer romance is shattered when Leslie finds her mother's diary and discovers that her mother and Peter's father are having an affair and want to get married. Suddenly the two teens find themselves stepbrother and sister, and must learn to cope with their new lives and old friendship.
