SUMMER GIRL Named “Finalist in Fiction” in the 2018 Book Excellence Awards!

Summer Girl, A Novel has been named a “Finalist in Fiction” in the prestigious 2018 Book Excellence Awards (BEA)!

Summer Girl, a story about two teens who meet on an island in 1965, has already garnered three 5-Star reviews from Readers Favorite, an excellent editorial review from Midwest Book Review, and 16 outstanding customer reviews on Amazon. The novel, which is a love story, also deals with child abuse and is, therefore, not a light, breezy, YA read.
