This One Summer is by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki. A graphic novel for young adults that is well written and well illustrated. It is the story of a teenage girl, Rose, whose family vacations every year at Awago Beach. There she and her younger friend Windy spend a fun summer with their families. But not this year, Rose's parents keep fighting and when she and Windy seek other diversions they become involved in the drama of the local young adult population. A wonderfully done graphic novel that teens will enjoy.
