Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of Judy Blume’s Summer Sisters, The Summer List is a tender yet tantalizing novel about two friends, the summer night they fell apart, and the scavenger hunt that reunites them decades later - until the clues expose a breathtaking secret that just might shatter them once and for all.

Laura and Casey were once inseparable: as they floated on their backs in the sunlit lake, as they dreamed about the future under starry skies, and as they teamed up for the wild scavenger hunts in their small California lakeside town. Until one summer night, when a shocking betrayal sent Laura running through the pines, down the dock, and into a new life, leaving Casey and a first love in her wake.

But the past is impossible to escape, and now, after 17 years away, Laura is pulled home and into a reunion with Casey she can’t resist - one last scavenger hunt. With a twist: this time, the list of clues leads to the settings of their most cherished summer memories. From glistening Jade Cove to the vintage skating rink, each step they take becomes a bittersweet reminder of the friendship they once shared. But just as the game brings Laura and Casey back together, the clues unravel a stunning secret that threatens to tear them apart....

Mesmerizing and unforgettable, Amy Mason Doan’s The Summer List is about losing and recapturing the person who understands you best - and the unbreakable bonds of girlhood.

A deeply touching story of two girls coming of age

Although the elements of the story are starkly dramatic (cults, runaways, underage sex, drugs, secrets), the narrative runs smoothly and lightly without vulgar voyeurism. Two girls in different families become friends at the beginning of the summer before high school. They become inseparable, unaware of the circumstances that link them. Laura’s parents are older and conservative, well respected. Casey is the new girl with an eccentric, flamboyant mother. Alex flouts her unconventional and irresponsible behavior.
The relationship between Laura and Casey is delightfully written. The secrets, lies and misunderstandings leading to the rupture and reunion of Laura and Casey are slowly revealed. The story and the narrative kept me riveted until the end.
