Trying Hard to Hear You Author:Sandra Scoppettone "This is the story of one summer in the life of Camilla Crawford. The summer she thought she was in love with Phil Chrystie. The summer her best friend, Jeff, needed her help and she couldn't give it. The summer everyone in her crowd tried hard to listen to each other - but not hard enough. It was the summer of learning about people, learning to... more » accept them- and, not least of all, learning about herself. Camilla wrote it all down so whe would never forget."
