The Summer of Naked Swim Parties by Jessica Anya Blau
I was expecting an adult chick lit book from the cover. And, you know it's good judging by the title! Jamie is a mature 14-year-old being raised by two hippie parents. THEY are the ones holding the naked swim parties! Jamie is the responsible one. But she's growing. The local hot surfer dude likes her. And her mother wants to talk to her about her body a lot. And her mom's friend hits on her. And Jamie doesn't know how to deal with it all. This is a wonderful coming-of-age tale in 1970s California. Read it if you like family drama and teenage romance tales.
