Anna and Frankie have been BFFs since they were "Twinkies," as Frankie's dad calls them, and they share all of each other's secrets. Almost. Sensible, level-headed Anna has a big secret; her first love was Frankie's older brother. But now that he's gone, Anna has the responsibility to help Frankie deal with the loss of her brother--and at the same time keep the secret that's breaking her heart. As the girls head to the sunny coast of California to enjoy the Best Summer Ever and lose their blues, faith in their friendship is shaken as they face their demons together. If you're a fan of Sarah Dessen or Ann Brashare's Sisterhood saga, indulge yourself in this good read. It has all the ingredients of a satisfying beach book...friendship, boys, secrets, drama, heartbreak, and ultimately, love.
