I was just cruising the internet when this jumped out at me – the summary!
When Auden decides to spend the summer before college with her father and stepmother in a small beach town, she finds herself freed to discover a new world of friendship with other girls, as well as an unexpected romance with Eli, a rising star on the BMX circuit and a fellow insomniac, who joins her in exploring the late night world of the small town. As Auden struggles to turn from the path her mother has set for her and Eli tries to come to terms with the death of a friend for which he holds himself responsible, the two break out of their mutual self-imposed isolation and find one another.
I am intrigued. I love Eli as the love interest’s name as it’s quite different than all the others. BMX? Love it, if you can ever be bothered try and find some video of Nicole Kidman in an Australian, 80s kid’s movie- BX Bandits. My fascination started there.
Setting? A small beach town. Do we think this might be Colby? Location of Keeping the Moon and roundabout location of the Queen’s beach house? Or is it a new location?
I am sooooooo excited.
