Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland

I was lucky enough to receive an Advanced Reader's Copy of Nantucket Blue, although it comes out very soon, May 7th, so I don't feel too bad recommending a book not yet released.  I could not put this book down and found myself forcing it to my nightstand once midnight had finally hit.  It took me straight back to high school with the teen language and fights and crushes.  Cricket Thompson has been madly in love with Jay Logan forever and even has a Jay playlist she constantly listens to.  When her best friend, Jules Clayton, invites her to spend the summer at her family's beach home on Nantucket she couldn't be happier.  Of course, knowing Jay will be on the island all summer will make this the all-time best summer vacation!  When the Clayton family is hit with a tragedy and Jules tells Cricket she can no longer come to Nantucket, Cricket is beside herself.  However, a rescinded invitation is not going to stop her from having the best summer ever!
