This summer they all have romance on their minds.  Ella canít stop thinking about Peter, her older sisterís new boyfriend.  Beth is starting to realize her feelings for her best friend, George, now that he is dating beautiful Cara.  Jamie has been looking forward to rekindling the relationship she started last summer with Ethan; however after emailing and talking on the phone all year, he just doesnít seem as interested this summer.  The chapters alternate between the three girlsí stories.  So will it be a summer of boys for Ella, Beth and Jamie?  (Davinna Artibey, Denver Center for International Studies, Denver Public Schools, CO)
