This One Summer
by Mariko Tamaki, Jillian Tamaki

Rose and Windy are summer friends whose families visit Awago Beach each year. While the younger Windy clings to childhood, Rose begins to explore horror movies and a fascination with a local convenience store clerk. To escape her bickering parents, Rose spies on the town’s teenagers and becomes entangled in their secrets.  This beautifully illustrated graphic novel is a bittersweet snapshot of Rose’s summer coming-of-age filled with heartbreak, revelations, and the awkwardness of growing up.
