Here's the back cover summary of Summer Changes Everything!
As sure as the seasons dissolve from one into the next, things will change. But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing…
After some bad choices and a run-in with the police, street-hardened teen Dylan Martin is forced to leave Philadelphia and spend the summer in the sleepy backwater town of Russell, Pennsylvania. When he unexpectedly meets his first love, what Dylan first calls a death sentence turns out to be the summer that changes everything.
Summer Changes Everything is a coming of age story that pulls no punches in describing the struggles that teens face when dealing with addiction, crisis, and identity. But it’s also a story of how unconditional love can make all the difference in a person’s life. With the help of an extraordinary heroine, the main character, Dylan, discovers that he can overcome disappointment, failure, and poor choices by taking control of his life and becoming the person he was meant to be.
