Small Town Hearts


Taylor Nelson


Barbara "Babe" Vogel is excited to have a perfect summer with her two best friends after graduating high school. Life in the small beach town of Oar's Rest, Maine, is sleepy and predictable, and Babe loves the quiet structure of her life. But everything changes when a reckless kiss causes her friends to split up, and things seem to get infinitely worse when Babe's ex-girlfriend returns to town, intent on picking up where they left off. Babe's only solace comes in the form of a tourist boy named Levi Keller, whose artist hands and serious eyes draw her in. Babe has always told herself never to fall for a summer boy. But perhaps by breaking her own rule, she'll find that love can be found in unexpected places, and that growing up means learning to embrace change and daring to take risks.
