Saving Summer

A novel by

There are no secrets in a small Kansas town.

Everyone knows everything about everyone, and Summer Steven’s life is no exception.

Six-year-old Summer isn��t sure about her new stepfather, who whistles when sober and swears when drunk. Her mom isn't much help. Ever since she can remember, her mother’s words have been a corset of wasps, leaving invisible scars Summer doesn't even know she has. Just when she thinks she can’t take any more, her mom gives Summer enough attention to keep her wanting more.

No amount of trouble in sixteen-year-old Summer's life prepares her for the shock of her stepfather arriving unannounced at her part-time job to kick her out of the house. Instantly, Summer is homeless, with nowhere to go and a math test the next day.

Summer only overcomes the narcissistic adults in her life by relying on her younger brother, older sister, and other surprising characters to survive her upbringing in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.
