If you enjoy the clean, sweet teen novels of Judy Blume, Beverly Lewis, Jennifer E Smith, Deborah Dunlevy and Sarah Fizgerald you’ll like Abby Lynn Pielet’s Summer Dey: Dare to be Different.
SUMMER DEY’s life is turned upside down when her family moves and she is forced to make new friends. Not an easy task for a fifteen year-old girl with very special gifts that make her…different. Worried that the other kids in her new town won’t accept her for who she is, especially the super cute guy she meets, Summer decides to do her best to blend in while also hiding her special talents. The only problem is that her gifts are impossible to keep hidden and continue to pop up at the worst possible moments. If that isn’t bad enough, Summer also has to contend with her nine year-old brother Indy who takes great pleasure in driving his big sister crazy.
When one of Summer’s new friends throws her a “Welcome to the Neighborhood” party, a treasured music box turns up missing. Will Summer hide her gifts so her new friends won’t think she’s a freak? Or will she “Dare to Be Different” and use those special gifts to get the stolen music box back and also to capture the thief?
