Her Teen Dream: Summer Heartbreak is the second novel in this realistic coming-of-age series for teenagers from Devon Vaughn Archer, author of the runaway best seller Her Teen Dream.
After finding her true love in the senior basketball star Reese McKenzie, 16-year-old Karin Blanch attends summer school for some extra credits at Elmwood High in Crescent Heights, California. As in the first book of the series, she experiences the ups and downs of first love. While Reese prepares to go to college in LA, Karin continues her strong friendship with next-door neighbor Lesley Rochester, makes new friends, and has to deal with summer heartbreak.
As her summer rolls along, Karin also finds herself attracted to a new guy at school, gets caught up in a school lockdown where she comes face to face with a bank robber, and catches Reese kissing his ex-girlfriend and cheerleader, Cheryl Green.
Meanwhile, Lesley, 16, is still dealing with being the victim of sexual abuse. She starts dating Marcus again, and her mother begins dating a friend of her late father's. When Lesley receives some devastating news, her own romance is threatened.
Fans of the first book in the series will find themselves equally entertained by this novel and Karin's coming of age as she and Lesley prepare to start their junior year in the fall in the upcoming third book in the series, Her Teen Dream: Junior Year.
