About the Author
Ann Herrick is the award-winning author of several books and short stories for kids and teens. Included in the awards her books have won are the ALA Recommended Book for Reluctant Readers, IRA/CBC Children’s Choice and EPIC Best YA Novel Finalist. Ann grew up in Connecticut, where she graduated from The Morgan School and Quinnipiac University. She now lives in Oregon with her husband, who was her high-school sweetheart. Their wonderful daughter is grown, married and gainfully employed, and has given Ann her only grand-dog, Puff, a bloodhound-rottweiller-beagle mix and six grand-kitties. While she misses the East Coast, especially houses built before 1900, she enjoys the green valleys, fresh air and low humidity in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Ann loves cats, walking, the Oregon Ducks and gardening in her back yard. In addition to stories and books for children and young adults, Ann also writes copy for humorous and conventional greeting cards. She loves to hear from her readers and can be contacted through her web site: http://annherrickauthor.com
In Ann Herrick's book, How To Survive A Summer Romance (or Two), she brings to life the complexities and confusion of young love and lust. Main character Kaysie must ride an emotional roller-coaster when she tries to reconcile her loyalty to the boy back home and her perplexing physical/ emotional reactions to the gorgeous guy she meets at the lake where her parents are vacationing. But are her feelings for him real, or is this simply a fleeting summer romance that will only end in heart-break? Kaysie is faced with real life decisions that teens will readily connect with. I'd highly recommend this book for teens and adults alike.
I found this book realistic and enjoyable. It added an interesting parallel that she was worried about her mother but that was tastefully resolved. I liked the family interaction and the characterization and story will intrigue teens who can't wait to find out how this turns out.
