Partying with friends and scoring a flawless tan is about all Roxie has on her list of things to make her Hampton’s summer perfect.
Her parents, however, have other plans and Grandma Betty’s farm is just one of them.
Just as her life is in shambles and the quaint town is suffocating her, she meets Chase.
Somewhere in the mix of bummer summer and small town doldrums, he becomes the boy she can’t seem to avoid falling for. Just adding him to the picture, her stay starts to get better, even if she knows it has to end with the summer holidays.
That is until Betty drops a life-shattering bomb.
Roxie must make a choice that will change her life forever. What happens when a spoiled brat from New York learns the true meaning of love, loss, and forgiveness?
Can Chase and Roxie find a way to be together or is this just another summer romance?
~~Kj's Review~~This wasn’t just your typical teen sent away for the summer, and hated every moment until a boy saved the whole summer. This was a story of family, roots and that which makes all of our lives richer. Roxie, most certainly one of the more spoiled girls, but there was a spark of her wanting something more there right from the beginning. Her disdain of Grandma Betty’s farm typical of a kid who hasn’t encountered this lifestyle before. Boy meets girl, Chase is his name and the romance begins to be forged.
I have to say Ruthi Kight’s novel took my breath away, it was so much more than I expected and everyone was telling me what a great book it is. I agree totally, it is a wonderful book and I look forward to more. It was about a girl finding her way into the world and making something of herself. It had real life unhappiness, nothing was sugar coated, my kind of book!! I highly recommend this book to anyone, it is an awesome story. Thanks to Ms. Kight for giving me her book to read and review, it was my pleasure!
