i had the book for a while. once i got into it, i really had fun with it. i live an hour north of baltimore, so it was fun to recognize some of the settings used in the book. I must've beeen totally clueless because i totally didn't get the one connection straight away. though at the end it was obvious. The end was a bit overly mushy considering they were just getting together, but overall, it was a sweet fun read.

One of the best summer reads. EVER. The complex plot will make you want to keep reading till the end. While it may at first seem like a stupid sports book, it turns out to be a wonderful love story. I defenetaly recommend this book for anyone wanting a quick delightful read.

SUMMER IN THE CITY is a novel based around sports, boys, and romance in the big city of Baltimore, Maryland, where Jamie is going to attend college in the fall. I didn't know if I was going to like this book at first, but I'm happy to say I was pleasantly surprised! I'm not a big sports fan, but this book had enough romance in it to keep me interested!

Jamie's parents divorced a long time ago and she lives with her dad. She and her father are very close because Jamie is really into sports and her dad is a football coach. She is the kind of girl that all the guys like hanging out with but not going out with. Her dad wants to take her and her school counselor (his girlfriend) up to their cabin for a summer of camping -- but that doesn't sound so appealing anymore. So instead Jamie goes to spend the summer with her mom, who is an ex-middle school teacher who became a romance writer.

Jamie's dad finds a lacrosse camp to enroll her in to give her something to do while she is there. She ends up getting a job helping run a basketball camp for underprivileged children. She loves basketball and the kids so she has a lot of fun!

You have to read the book to find out all of Jamie's romantic adventures in the city!
