Unlike many other books I've read, this one didn't seem to resonate with me very strongly. Shortly after I read it, I was unable to recount the intricate details inside the plot. However, there are some great take home messages that I would recommend everyone give a shot. Briggs, the protagonist, is a teenage guy who finds a job to get away for the summer. He works for an elderly lady by Lake Michigan, and journeys through the ups and downs of self discovery. Having been told by his father all his life that he must earn money in his future prospects, he finds that there is more to life than simply that. The romance was sweet, but not too overwhelming. A 3/5 stars for me!

While this coming of age story had funny moments, I thought it was simplistic and unbelievable.
