When her family arrives at their summer home, Cathy goes to the store a few blocks away to get soda. To her surprise, she discovers Dan is working at the store. Now, how will she be able to have a trial romance, when Dan is the one she wants to have a real romance with? Dan agrees to have Rebecca pretend to be his girlfriend to get rid of a bunch of ten-year old girls who hang around Dan all the time. How can Rebecca just pretend to be his girlfriend when that's what she really wants? And, how will Rebecca handle a new girl claiming Dan's attention and affection?
SUMMER REPLACEMENT is a very refreshing young adult romance. It was so nice to read about Rebecca's first love and the lessons she learns.
