Product description


“A richly embroidered cast of characters, a thoughtful exploration of how real friends treat one another, and the true meaning of family all combine to make this a thoroughly satisfying coming-of-age tale. Cape Cod is nicely depicted—not the Cape of tourists but the one of year-round residents—as is the sometimes-sharp contrast between residents and summer people. Hunt has crafted another gentle, moving tale of love and loss: the value of the one and the importance of getting over the other.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Limned in northeastern sea salt and Adirondack chairs, Hunt’s latest offering explores those frustrating preteen years when friends become enemies and family is at once embarrassing and desired. . . . Hunt creates a realistic sketch of small-town life and the agonies of growing up in an imperfect family. . . . The thematic elements of tweenage angst are timeless and relatable.”—School Library Journal

“In addition to telling Delsie’s story in an involving way, Hunt vividly portrays the underlying us-and-them mentality shared by locals in a seaside community that relies on outside visitors. As sweet and summery as lemonade.”—Booklist

“Endearingly blunt, stubborn Delsie lives year-round on Cape Cod. . . . In kid-friendly prose, Hunt balances Delsie’s unfettered sense of adventure with her tweenlike insecurities. . . . Her sweet desire for a family and her unexpected realization that she’s had one all along make this story well worth reading.”Publishers Weekly

“[Delsie and Ronan’s] slow-build friendship is realistic and enjoyable. . . . Delsie is an engaging protagonist, simultaneously stubborn and uncertain, independent-minded without forced quirkiness. Hunt’s depiction of class conflict in a vacation destination is matter of fact, with money woes serving not as plot points but as part of the setting. The writing is vivid and child-friendly . . . with a satisfyingly imperfect resolution to the many conflicts.”—Horn Book

Reviewed in the United States on May 7, 2019
Delsie is being raised by her offbeat-yet-caring grandmother on Cape Cod. It's fine, but she can't help wondering why she doesn't have typical parents. Her unease grows as her friend group starts changing and shifting, until her life feels like one of the storms she likes to track. Enter Ronan, an unexpected and unconventional ally who has been through the wringer himself. Their tenuous friendship grows as they connect over shared experiences of loss and feeling like you don't belong...anywhere. These young people feel real- when Delsie is rejected by her former best friend, it stings, and her sadness and anger is palpable. When Ronan acts out, you understand where he's coming from. These characters are windows into young people's minds, and readers will connect with them as they learn resilience, and rediscover the love and support that already exists in their lives. It's a beautiful and meaningful story that resonates, especially in today's stressful world.
