Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This is the first novel in the Sebastian Sisters quintet that recounts the events surrounding the 16th birthday of each of four sisters and their mother Megs. Evvie's birthday promises to be less than glamorous: her great-aunt Grace is bedridden and Evvie is sent to spend the summer with her. Soon after her arrival, Evvie meets two boys, Sam and Schyler. Although Schyler is wealthy and gorgeous, it is Sam who touches Evvie's heart. Her feelings for him are strong enough to withstand the revelation of an unhappy secret about his family's past. But when she learns some brutal truths about her own father and his untrustworthiness, Evvie draws away from Sam. Fortunately, she comes to a new understanding of the many shades of love and truth, and it is this knowledge that enables Evvie to give Sam, her father and herself a second chance. This thoughtful exploration of family ties fairly sparkles with romance; the Sebastians have established themselves as a family to watch. Ages 10-up.

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-12 Sixteen-year-old Evvie, the oldest of the four Sebastian sisters, spends the summer in a resort town helping her Great-aunt Grace, who has broken her leg. Although intimidated by this aunt who has always disapproved of Evvie's father, Evvie has the good sense and wit to sidestep Grace's opinionated lectures, and Grace comes to depend on Evvie for companionship. Yet history seems to repeat itself when Aunt Grace reveals her disapproval of Evvie's friend, Sam, a Jewish boy who doesn't have the right credentials. She prefers the handsome Schyler, whose attentions toward Evvie prove to be trumped up by Aunt Grace. Adding mystery is that both Nick and Sam have skeletons in the closet. The story has everything teenagers will want: mystery and suspense, strong family ties, and summer love. The crisp dialogue is right on target, giving each scene light drama and occasional humor. The character of the meddling old dowager, Grace, pervades the story and sets the background for conflict, while Evvie's father Nick is believable as the persistent dreamer. At the center is Evvie, a wise and charming teen, who knows her own mind. This first book in a projected series about each of the girls and their mother at age 16 will have readers looking forward to the others. Phyllis Graves, Creekwood Middle School, Kingwood, Tex.
