KIRKUS REVIEW

Willa is still getting used to the idea of having JFK as her official boyfriend; her mother and stepfather are gearing up for another busy season at the inn; and Nana is working hard to come up with new taffy and fudge flavors to wow the tourists. But when a new girl, Mariel, moves to town, she seems to want everything Willa has, including JFK. The last straw for Willa is when Mariel lands the part opposite JFK in the local performance of Our Town. In addition to having to watch her boyfriend kiss a beautiful girl, there are two weddings, a farewell and a new baby for Willa to handle. Willa remains charming, funny and often achingly real. Complete with another of “Willa’s pix,” a list of her recommended books, this is sure to please bibliophiles, theater lovers and anyone looking for a good story. (Fiction. 10-12)
