Some brief overview of this book

Cricket Thompsons lifetime of overachieving has paid off: shes headed to Brown University in the fall, with a spot on the lacrosse team and a scholarship that covers almost everything. Who knew living in the dorm cost money? An Ivy League education seems to mean living at home for the next four years.

When Cricket is offered the chance to earn enough cash to afford a real college experience, she heads back to Nantucket for the summer. But the faraway island challenges Cricket in ways she hadnt anticipated. Its hard to focus on earning money for next year, when she finds her world opening up in entirely new ways-to art, to travel, and, most unexpectedly, to a future completely different from the one she has been working toward her whole life. A friendship blossoms with Ben, the gorgeous surfer and bartender who encourages Cricket to be free, even as she smarts at the pain of seeing Zack, her first love, falling for her worst enemy.

But one night, when Cricket finally lets herself break all her own rules, she realizes she may have ruined her carefully constructed future with one impulsive decision. Cricket must dig deep to fight for her future, discovering that success isnt just about reaching goals, but also about listening to what shes been trying to ignore-her own heart.

Praise for Nantucket Blue:

Howland evokes the Nantucket setting vividly . . . when it comes to indulgent beach reading, sometimes its more fun to get pushed over by a wave than to stay safely on your towel.

-The New York Times

Sand, secrets, Nantucket Reds, and romance. A fresh, feel-good debut.

-The Boston Globe

*Readers should feel empowered by Crickets efforts to grow up into a strong, honest, and emotionally intelligent young woman, even as they are enchanted by the romantic and exclusive island setting. This is a natural beach read, but will easily win Howland year-round fans, too.

-Publishers Weekly, starred review

Fans of Sarah Dessen will find much to like here, as the charm of this summery yarn lies in Crickets open appeal. Readers will root for her as she falls down, takes her lumps, and moves forward to her final year in high school, always remembering what she learned under the Nantucket sun.
