Waiting on Wednesday: The Summer After You and Me

The Summer After You and Me
Author: Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Synopsis via Goodreads:
Sunbathing, surfing, eating funnel cake on the boardwalk—Lucy loves living on the Jersey Shore. For her, it's not just the perfect summer escape, it is home. And as a local girl, she knows not to get attached to the tourists. They breeze in over Memorial Day weekend, crowding the shore and stealing moonlit kisses, only to pack up their beach umbrellas and empty promises on Labor Day. Lucy wants more from love than a fleeting romance, even if that means keeping her distance from her summertime neighbor and crush, Connor.

Then Superstorm Sandy tears apart her barrier island, briefly bringing together a local girl like herself and a vacationer like Connor. Except nothing is the same in the wake of the storm. And day after day, week after week, Lucy is left to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and broken home. Now with Memorial Day approaching and Connor returning, will it be a summer of fresh starts or second chances?

Every year I look for the perfect summer themed reads to occupy me under the sun. Beaches, summer tourists, and complicated romance makes this book sound right up my alley. I also read Doktorski's book How My Summer Went Up in Flames two years ago and it was a lot of fun. I think this one will make a great beach read!


  1. this does look like the perfect beach read. I loved her book how my summer went up in flames
