'Fifteen-year-old Summer has big plans.
'She wants to be a writer, and she wants to start an all-girl rock band.
'And then she falls in love and a whole new world opens up for her.
'Life would be perfect if it weren't for her family: her New Age mum has old-fashioned ideas, and her gran, aged and increasingly confused, is an embarrassment. This is the story of the year Summer turns fifteen: a year in which she learns that life is exhilarating, funny, painful and unpredictable.
'But Summer is a survivor, and her story is ultimately a positive and life-affirming one.' (Publication summary)
