Title: SUMMER OF HOPE
Genre: YA Contemporary
After her brother’s death, sixteen-year-old Callie shuts down. Forced to go to her family’s summer beach house, she resolves to erase the pain any way she can. Enter the "Perfect’s”—a Gold Card group of girls who offer escape in the form of parties, booze and boys.
Then she meets Ethan. Despite fighting it, Callie is drawn to his sweet ways and sexy smile. She falls hard—before discovering he's hiding a secret that changes everything. Ethan came to the beach to escape, to live without the label. Because his label is the kid with Hodgkin's disease.
Callie is left with the choice of standing by Ethan's side and watching another person she loves die, or running and abandoning the one person who helps her to believe in love again. Fight or flight? Callie’s decision puts her own life in danger, and changes the lives of everyone around her, forever.
"I watched my twin brother die, and couldn't do a thing to stop it."
