Cool for the summer from Dahlia Adler
During her three years at school, Lara had eyes for exactly one person: Chase Harding. He’s tall, strong, cute, a soccer star, and frankly, stupid and hot. Oh, and he’s talking to her now. On purpose and everything. Maybe … even flirt? No, wait, he’s definitely flirting, which is pretty much the sum of everything Lara wanted out of life.
Except that she is haunted by a memory. A reminder of a confusing, romantic, strangely perfect summer with a girl named Jasmine. A memory that turns into a confusing, confusing gift when Jasmine walks through the front doors of the school herself to see Lara and Chase talking in front of the lockers.
Lara has everything she ever wanted: a close-knit group of friends, a job that borders on cool, and Chase, the boy of her literal dreams. But when she finally has the guy, why can’t she stop thinking about the girl?
Cool for the Summer is a story of self-discovery and new love. It’s about the things we want and the things we need. And it’s about the people who leave us as we are.
