A glimpse into a couple of weeks of one boy’s summer – wonderfully evocative, funny and intelligent, and a fine example of how stories don’t have to be about the big things to make an impact. After January is subtle, affecting and gently witty. I highly recommend.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 061845781X, Paperback)

This summer is different. School is over for Alex Delaney, and he’s waiting for his university acceptance, only seventeen days away. The waiting is killing him. He’s not expecting much from summer. Bodysurfing, TV, but mainly waiting.

So he’s not ready for the girl who cuts past him on a wave. Not at all prepared for her perfect balance on the board, the elegant muscles of her shoulders and back. Just a girl. Compelling green eyes, golden skin, something graceful and elusive about her. Summer is about to change.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:21:55 -0400)

An Australian teenager feels bored while vacationing at his mother's beach house and is worried about passing his final examinations until he meets an attractive local girl.
