Goodreads asked Jane Harvey-Berrick:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Jane Harvey-Berrick 'Summer of Seventeen' is set with a young guy who's a surfer in Florida. I live by the ocean so I see surfers just about every day. But it's also about the hopes and dreams we have when we're 17, on the cusp of becoming adults. I suppose you could say it's a 'coming-of-age' story.
