will have you reminiscing about summers as a teenager and all the
foibles and joys of those times. With references to the 1980s that

loved the book and cried at the end. It was a wonderful heartwarming
tale of an adolescent boy and his heart. I loved the characters and
could relate, as I am a fellow Long Islander. The references to the
1980s are great." - Nancy O'Hara, early reviewer.
brought back some great memories of high school. I felt very
'seventeen,' which was a fun way to feel during the week of my fiftieth
birthday. I can't even guess how many times I literally laughed out
loud. I was expecting a great book and was definitely not
disappointed." - Karen Nelson, early reviewer.
loved the '80s memories of Friendly's fribbles, Spencer's Gifts, the
music, movies, etc. I have lots of family in Long Island and grew up
going there all my life, and I feel like he nailed the Long Island '80s
vibe of malls and beach days. The book has great nostalgia for me,
especially given the world we live in today with constant social media
and everyone on their phones. It was a great escape!" - Danielle Boniauto, early reviewer.
