The Summer of Naked Swim Parties: A Novel


About the Book

A passionate and poignant debut novel of one girl's coming of age in 1970s southern California - replete with stoners, hippies, surfers, bitchy girlfriends, first love, first heartbreak, and OP shorts Jamie Green will remember "the summer of naked swim parties" for the rest of her life. It's the summer in which she has her first serious boyfriend, Flip, who is three years older and comes with friends for Jamie's friends; it's the summer in which Jamie's older sister is away at Outward Bound, leaving Jamie with her parents (and very often the house) to herself; it's the summer in which Jamie's parents throw, yes, naked swim parties, leaving Jamie cringing with embarrassment. And it's the summer in which Jamie will be forced to confront love, loss, family, and heartbreak for the very first time.
