    Following her parents' divorce, 12-year-old Juillet and her mother fly from the Midwest to an oceanside Southern California community for the month of July. While Mom works at the local hospital, Juillet is free to roam, though she's generally fearful and often governed by her anxieties and phobias. Anticipating "the most dreadful summer of my life," Juillet soon makes a connection that changes everything. Summer, an enigmatic local girl, befriends her and helps her overcome her ocean-related fears (sharks, rip currents, tsunamis). Besides teaching Juillet the joys of boogie boarding and surfing, Summer finally reveals her own emotional burden, which she's bearing as bravely she can. Juillet's engaging first-person narrative has emotional openness, wry reflection, and vividly drawn settings. While the novel's ending, full of quiet joy on every front, seems too good to be credible, given where the two girls started and what they've accomplished within a single month, there's something real and haunting about these vulnerable characters and their journey together. A beach book with some complexity as well as a happy ending. Grades 5-7. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
