[Young Adult Fiction (Ages 12-17)]
In this irresistible beach read -- perfect for fans of Jenny Han or Lauren Conrad -- America's favorite pop goddess flees the spotlight to Maine to recover from her latest breakup. Only to fall head over heels for a down-to-earth local guy and be faced with an impossible decision: him or her music.
After getting her heart shattered for the thousandth time, multiplatinum pop icon Lily Ross is escaping her high-profile, crazy life and heading to an island in middle-of-nowhere Maine with her best friends. She has three months to focus on herself, her music, her new album -- anything but guys. This summer is going to be different.
That is until Lily meets sweet and charming Noel Bradley, who is so different from anyone she's ever dated. Suddenly Lily's ''summer of me'' takes an unexpected turn, and she finds herself falling deeper and harder than ever before. But even though Lily loves Noel, she loves her music and her fans, too. And come August when it's time to leave Maine and go back out on tour, she will be forced to choose between them.
