Synopsis:
 
It's the summer of 1976 on Fire Island, where feathered hair and the Bicentennial celebration reign. Jean, a sometimes cruel, often insecure, and always envious rich girl, is accustomed to living in her glamorous older sister’s shadow. So when Gil Burke, a handsome newcomer with uncertain ties to one of the most powerful families in the exclusive enclave of Sunken Haven, notices Jean—not her sister—Jean is smitten. Then Fritz, a girl from outside the gilded gates who humiliated Jean in the Island’s tennis championship last year, falls for Gil herself. Soon the girls are competing for much more than a tennis trophy, with higher stakes than either of them can imagine.
 
 
 
As much as I wanted to love this book, I ended up liking and disliking it. I liked the multiple points of view, the pace, the setting and the characters pulled me in. What I disliked was the girl on girl hate as we know this to be a real problem. I know that it's simply a story but I feel that young ladies need to be empowered and to support one another.
 
I give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.
