    "Just as adolescent boys eagerly awaited to the next installment in the Harry Potter series, if my 13-year-old daughter's reaction is typical, so will young girls to Michelle Dalton's new romantic teen series -- Sixteenth Summer. The first book in the series of the same name sets the stage. Anna dreads another boring summer on Dune Island where her family runs a B&B. Enter Will - a drop-dead gorgeous young man from New York who has a penchant for dingy-sailing and Rocky Road Ice Cream and it becomes a summer Anna will never forget. My daughter could not put this book down and is already saving her allowance to buy the next book in the series. Hopefully, it will come out before WE spend the summer at the beach later this year as it's the perfect beach romance book for pre-teens. "
