Summary
"Fantastic. Wistful, mysterious, sparkling with secrets, scenery, and some steaminess. I raced through Summer Hours in a day!" --Meg Donohue, USA Today bestselling author

From the author of The Summer List, a warmly told novel set in the mid '90s and 2008 about the idealism of youth, the seductive power of nostalgia, and what happens when you realize you haven't become the person you'd always promised to be.

Becc was the good girl. A dedicated student. Aspiring reporter. Always where she was supposed to be. Until a secret affair with the charming Cal one summer in college cost her everything she held dear: her journalism dreams; her relationship with her best friend, Eric; and her carefully imagined future.

Now, Becc's past is back front and center as she travels up the scenic California coast to a wedding--with a man she hasn't seen in a decade. As each mile flies by, Becc can't help but feel the thrilling push and pull of memories, from infinite nights at beach bonfires and lavish boat parties to secret movie sessions. But the man beside her is not so eager to re-create history. And as the events of that heartbreaking summer come into view, Becc must decide if those dazzling hours they once shared are worth fighting for or if they're lost forever.

"Engaging and nostalgic. Doan's writing sweeps you away to the high-speed, sun-soaked backdrop of nineties California." --Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Becca is using her trip to her best friend's wedding as an opportunity. She is a young journalism student and a ""good girl"" who was always where she was supposed to be, but she made choices that hurt people she cared about. A clandestine affair with an older man had felt so exciting, but led to the loss of everything she thought she wanted her friends, her scholarship, her future. Now she is driving up the California coast with the man who had once been so dear to her, hoping she can rekindle the friendship they once had. With scenes taking place alternately in the mid-nineties and then in 2008, this moving story paints a portrait of the mistakes we all make in youth and leaves the reader with the hopeful reminder that sometimes the things we're nostalgic for can be had again if we're willing to work for them. A great read for the now grown-up fans of The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants or Judy Blume. The Summer Hours is a perfect summer read.--Diana Platt Copyright 2019 Booklist"
