From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-7-- A refreshing coming-of-age story that offers a good mix of summer fun, excitement, and problems. Veronica Windslow and Jimmy Jackman live on Harbor Island year-round, and Ronnie always looks forward to summer, when their friend Amy Parrish arrives. But this summer Amy has changed--suddenly she is more concerned with tanning than fishing, has become obsessed with her appearance, and often would rather be alone with Jimmy, whom she thinks of as her boyfriend. Hurt and disgusted, Ronnie finds a new friend in the least likely person on the island--the local eccentric who keeps a band of half-wild cats and who has an uncanny knack for appearing mysteriously out of nowhere. Through their friendship, Ronnie discovers new talents and strengths of her own. Readers will empathize with Ronnie's pain and confusion as she tries to cope with the new relationships being formed. Characters are well drawn, particularly lonely old Mrs. Peet, whose son is trying to put her in a retirement home. An entertaining book about friendships with peers as well as with the elderly, growing up, and old-fashioned summers. --Jeanette Larson, Mesquite Public Library, TX
