Summer is Close….

For many, this weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. For us purists, we have until mid-June for the real deal. In either case, summers unearth years of memories from everyone’s past. All differ a bit, but so many are the same: Summer vacation, blue skies, swimming, friends, beaches…

Set in the Midwest in (now) distant 1928, 12-year-old Douglas Spaulding’s summer adventures will remind everyone of those July and August days long thought forgotten.
