I'm assuming this book has been published in the last ten years

Young Adult Novel

Here's what I remember:
There's a teenage girl, around the age of sixteen and she works at a restaurant. One thing that gets mentioned a lot is some special name for a type of seafood, maybe clams?

In the beginning of the book, after the girl finishes her shift, she meets her boyfriend in the parking lot and they sit in his truck, and I'm pretty sure they make out or something.

Then I think she starts to get feelings for another boy, who I believe he has red hair. I distinctly remember a scene between them that took place on a boat.

At some point in the book, the girl participates in some sort of pageant to prove herself to someone, but I don't know who. The red-haired boy ends up coming and I think she's embarrassed.

There is also a part where she rides past the red-haired boy house on a bike.

The story ends with the girl and this red-haired boy having some sort of conversation (and possibly kiss?) in a parking lot.

And I think it's possibly set in Maine??

If you have any suggestions please let me know--its really bugging me that I can't remember this book. Thank you!!
