Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Budding photographer Josie Saint-Martin has spent half her life with her single mother, moving from city to city. When they return to her historical New England hometown years later to run the family bookstore, Josie knows it's not forever. Her dreams are on the opposite coast, and she has a plan to get there. What she doesn't plan for is a run-in with the town bad boy, Lucky Karras. Outsider, rebel...and her former childhood best friend. Lucky makes it clear he wants nothing to do with the newly returned Josie. But everything changes after a disastrous pool party, and a poorly executed act of revenge lands Josie in some big-time trouble--with Lucky unexpectedly taking the blame. Determined to understand why Lucky was so quick to cover for her, Josie discovers that both of them have changed, and that the good boy she once knew now has a dark sense of humor and a smile that makes her heart race. And maybe, just maybe, he's not quite the brooding bad boy everyone thinks he is..." -- (Source of summary not specified)

    The Saint-Martins women are so unlucky in love that they believe themselves to be cursed. Josie's spent half her life moving because of her mother's complicated relationships with everyone from boyfriends to her own mother. But for Josie, who wants to be a photographer like the father she barely knows, it's all temporary; her future is in L.A., with him. When she and her mom head back to Beauty, the New England hometown they left when Josie was young, it's just another stop on the road. She doesn't expect to reencounter Lucky, the childhood best friend who's now a shockingly attractive—and broody—bad boy. And she certainly doesn't expect to become embroiled in town drama. But a situation that begins with Josie and Lucky getting arrested results in a summer of reconnection, miscommunication, and, maybe, first love despite that Saint-Martins curse. Bennett, who delved into historical fantasy with The Lady Rogue (2019), returns to contemporary romance with this bittersweet, deeply reflective look at what makes a first love so strong and a first dream so big. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
