This One Summer


This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki

paperback, 2014

An unforgettable summer...

Rose and her parents have been going to Awago Beach since she was a little girl. It's her summer getaway, her refuge. Her friend Windy is always there too, like the little sister she never had, completing her summer family.

But this summer is different.

Rose's mom and dad won't stop fighting, and Rose and Windy find themselves tangled up in a tragedy in the making in the small town of Awago Beach. It's a summer of secrets and heartache, and it's a good thing Rose and Windy have each other.

In This One Summer, cousins Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki, the team behind the award-winning Skim, redefine the teen graphic novel. Gorgeous, heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful, This One Summer is a vibrant view into girlhood and growing up.
