9780375859748: A Million Miles from Boston

School's out! That means Lucy is off to her favorite place: Pierson Point, Maine, where she spends summers with her family. And as she tries to forget her worries about starting middle school and about Dad's new girlfriend, Lucy can't get there soon enough. Pierson Point is where she feels most like herself, and where memories of her mother, who died when Lucy was six, are strong and sacred.
But this summer, nothing is the same. Ian, a boy from home in Boston, comes to Pierson Point with his family. Ian is loud, popular, and mean. He and Lucy can't stand each other. To top it off, Dad wants his girlfriend to become a bigger part of Lucy's life.
Karen Day's engaging novel shows that people aren't always what they seem, and that friendship can be found in the most unusual places.

Review:

Publisher's Weekly, March 8, 2011:
"Day delivers a well-paced, realistic 'summer of change' story."

Booklist, March 15, 2011:

"Day captures childhood’s pain and hope deftly in this satisfying tale."

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, April 2011:
"There’s a solid, old-school feel to the story...and a gentleness to the timeless world of summer vacations, where kids pelt around together under minimal adult supervision...A classic summer-growth story."

School Library Journal, June 2011:
"Day has written a great book that deals with a variety of believable interpersonal relationships and transitions...[Lucy's] grief is thoughtfully interwoven throughout the story."
