But this summer is different. Rose's mom and dad won't stop fighting, and when Rose and Windy seek a distraction from the drama, they find themselves with a whole new set of problems. One of the local teens - just a couple of years older than Rose and Windy - is caught up in something bad... Something life threatening.It's a summer of secrets, and sorrow, and growing up, and it's a good thing Rose and Windy have each other.This One Summer is a tremendously exciting new teen graphic novel from two creators with true literary clout.
