Debbie (of and ) is growing up. Fresh out of junior year at boarding school, still interested in Jaiophy-mad Peter, Debbie decides to go on her own and earn some money at a Cape Cod resort hotel as a waitress. On the verge of leaving she gets word from Rachelle, her sophisticated roommate who had gone back home to Paris, that she is coming back. Could this have something to do with her Harvard brother, Phil's moodiness? She achemes a bit to bring them together during her summer of attacking dishes, jockeying to hold her own with the college crowd, getting into some financial entanglements. On the side there's a whirl of tennis matches, lemonades, two or three kisses in the moonlight, motherly advice, and the usual round of summer doings. Patterned emotions, predictable responses, but sure fire with the teen ager.
