About the Author
Sarah Ockler wrote and illustrated her first book at age six-an adaptation of Steven Spielberg's E.T. Still recovering from her own adolescence, Sarah now writes for young adults. While nomadic at heart, she currently lives in Upstate New York with her husband Alex and an ever-expanding collection of sea glass.
"Twenty Boy Summer is a tender and heartfelt story of love, loss, and letting go."--Deb Caletti, author of National Book Award finalist Honey, Baby, Sweetheart
"Ockler brings the salty tang of the ocean waves and the tingling anticipation of a first kiss to delicate life, while simultaneously evoking the mixed-up feelings of the friends, family, and loves left behind."--Lisa Ann Sandell, author of The Weight of the Sky and Song of the Sparrow
"Reading this book felt like diving underwater and emerging with wise little gems about friendship, grieving, and love."--Laura Resau, author of Red Glass
"Breaks your heart and puts it back together again."--Jo Knowles, author of Lessons From A Dead Girl and Jumping Off Swings
"Anna's authentic voice and some lyrical writing will satisfy fans of Sarah Dessen, while the mix of romance, drama, and tragedy will be a draw for teen readers of Nicholas Sparks and Jodi Picoult."--Booklist
"[A] sincere, romantic tearjerker. Readers will easily relate to Anna's authentically depicted feelings of lust, longing, shame and fear as she cautiously embarks on a new summer love."--Kirkus Reviews
"This is smoothly written and romantic as all get out....ideal for readers looking for romance salted with a bit of tears as well as a bit of sea air."--BCCB
