From the back cover:

First boy. First Love. First Time.

Ella
Peter was watching me all night-I could feel it. I wish he'd make a move already. too bad he's my sister's boyfriend.

Beth
Suddenly George is looking really good in his swim trunks. I don't know what I'm thinking-he's my best friend. Do I want more?

Jamie
Last summer, Ethan and I fell for each other-big-time. My feelings for him haven't changed. But why is he pushing me away?

It's summer. It's hot. It's time to hook up.

Love this book. I also enjoyed the sequel, Next Summer and the third one, After Summer. The fourth and final Summer Boys novel comes out summer 07 called Last Summer. A excellent series of books.

This was a great young adult read. It was easy and fun, a perfect beach read, and there is even a sequal called Next Summer!

My Thoughts: This is the first book in a series. It started out a little confusing for me but quickly picked up. There are 3 girls and it was hard to distinguish between them. I kept having to flip to the back of the book to remember who was who. The three guys in the book I had no problem remembering. But they had very easy names for me to remember and they were each so different. The girls are cousins and each one has their own distinct personality but their names I had a hard time remembering. By the end of the book I knew who was who and could keep each story straight. We learned a little bit about each girl and their relationships. This book is definitely a light summer read. One you would take to the beach and enjoy it with a best friend or while your scooping out a love interest. I related to Beth the most. She reminded me a lot of myself. I also felt more connected to the boy she was crushing on. I also like the cover. It is plain but just the right kind of plain. We see the girl in clear focus and the boy is faded into the background. It also fits the book because the story takes place in a beach area. This book didn't take too much serious thought but was a fun read. I will be definitely be reading the rest of the series once I get my hands on them.
