This was another of my favorite books as a young adult.
Caitlin is rich and the duitiful daughter. She always does as she is told. Then she falls for Dom, a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and Caitlin's life is forever changed.
Dom's sister, Patti, pretends to love her job at the country club. She pretends she doesn't want to go to college. In reality, her parents can't afford to send her to school, and Patti dreads the moment all her friends leave her forever.
Jennifer is beautiful and smart. She has been in love with Alan her entire life. Then, Alan discovers he has AIDS.
Danny is the laugh of the party. He's stuck in the role of friend, when he really wants to be Leah's lover.
Leah is sweet and kind. She's also in love with a guy who doesn't know she exists.
Five friends and one unforgettable summer. This book actually reminds me of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Very good teen reading.
