Description:
A Newbery Medal Book

She wished something would happen.

Something good. To her. Checking her wish for loopholes, she found one. Hoping it wasn't too late, she thought the word soon.

Meanwhile, in another part of town, he felt as if the world was opening. Life was rearranging itself; bulging in places, fraying in spots. He felt himself changing, too, but into what? So much can happen in a summer.


Teenagers in a small town in the 1960s experience new thoughts and feelings, question their identities, connect, and disconnect as they search for the meaning of life and love.


Provides a coming-of-age tale as a young girl struggles with the hardships of becoming a woman while hanging with her friends, trying to learn to drive, dealing with family dramas, and experiencing life in a new town--all while trying to find a meaningful relationship with a caring boy in the process.

This is the 2006 Newbery Winner, see a complete list.
