Riding A Bike is only one of the many things Auden's missed out on. Even before her parents' divorce, she was cast in the role of little adult, never making waves, focusing on academics to please her demanding mother.
Now she's spending the summer before college in the tiny beach town of Colby with her father and his new wife and baby. A job in a trendy boutique introduces her to the world of girls, their friendships, conversations, romances. And then there's Eli, an intriguing loner. A former star on the bike circuit and a fellow insomniac, Eli introduces Auden to the nocturnal world of Colby. Together they embark on a quest: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she's been denied; for Eli, to put a tragic episode behind him. Combine two lonely people with a charming beach town and an endless supply of long summer nights, and just about anything can happen.
Once again, Sarah Dessen creates a rich and satisfying world that readers will hate to leave.
I am most likely positive that I am the last person to blog about this book! Once again I am in LOVE with every one of Sarah Dessens Books! I Love the connection between Eli and Auden that starts building and yet neither one of them understand it especially Auden. Its funny how spending one summer away can end up changing your whole life. And realizing on how much of your child hood that you have actually missed out on.My two favorite parts of the book was the fact that she didn't know how to ride a bike!! Which i dont know i thought everyone did although heres a funny fact about my family...My brother Craig would never ride a bike he just ran along side of it all the time and he could keep up with everyone else on there bikes! He even would like jump it and everything! Thats pretty funny! The second, Audens Quest! Awesome summer read! Its full of Hope, Drama, and Romance! My FAVORITE! Hope you enjoy it as much as I Did!
