Susane's seventh teen novel, All I Need, will be released on May 21, 2013.
Rule 6: Go retro
Being tethered to technology is pretty much required if you, like, live in the world. But summer is the perfect time to unplug and enjoy some old-school fun.
Some of my fave summer things include:
Bike riding – Grab your BFF or BF and take a long bike ride. Chilling with nature will leave you guys feeling mellowed out and even more connected to each other.
Refreshing treats – There’s nothing like slushies, snowballs, and Italian ice to cool you down when it’s broiling out.
Vintage funtivities – Roller skating and mini golf were all the rage back in the day. Well, maybe they were just all the rage in my circle. Timeless, charming, and fun for a whole group of friends.
Amusement parks – Water rides during the day and bumper cars at night? Yes PLEASE.
No matter how you decide to unwind this summer, getting back to the basics will bring the kind of happy times that only simple pleasures can. Now excuse me while I make some watermelon juice popsicles…
Skye wants to meet the boy who will change her life forever. Seth feels their instant connection the second he sees her. When Seth starts talking to Skye at the last beach party of the summer, it's obvious to both of them that this is something real. But when Seth leaves for college before they exchange contact info, Skye wonders if he felt the same way she did--and if she will ever see him again. Even if they find their way back to each other, can they make a long-distance relationship work despite trust issues, ex drama, and some serious background differences?
Teen favorite Susane Colasanti returns to the alternating-voice style of her beloved debut When It Happens in this Serendipity-inspired story about summer, soul mates, and the moments that change our lives forever.
