Angie always thought high school romances were just silly infatuations that come and go. She certainly never thought she would fall in love over one short summer. But when she meets Jack, their connection is beyond any childish crush. Suddenly, Angie and Jack are filling their summer with stolen moments and romantic nights. But as fall grows closer, they must figure out if their love is forever, or just a summer they’ll never forget.
Maureen Daly (1921–2006), still in college when she wrote Seventeenth Summer, captured quintessential adolescent experiences with extraordinary freshness and sensitivity. Seventeenth Summer was chosen unanimously as the first winner of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute Literacy Fellowship. She has also been honored with the O. Henry Award, the Freedoms Foundation Award, and the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award for her literary work.
