ONE SPECIAL SUMMER by Barbara Clayton


Email this review


Jodi was the youngest of the cousins, the only one who didn't have a project connected to the old Inn at Blueberry Cove, Maine, which had belonged to her grandparents and which the family was trying to keep running over the summer. She doesn't take kindly to Peter Miller, an over-sheltered boy of her age who was dumped on the family when his mother was called away from the hotel on an emergency. Jodi's futile attempts to impress her cousins, her frustration at being left out of most of the summer plans, her scorn for Peter which turns into jealousy then friendship when he develops some outdoor skills will find a ready response from many girls. However Jodi's and Peter's just-in-the-nick-of-time discovery of an old Indian village (found on the basis of Peter's reading about artifacts and Jodi's spur of the moment, haphazard theory) make One Special Summer just like countless others in juvenile fiction.
