Shiinexoxo | 3 comments So, I read this book around 2006 which would have been written before this- likely in the 1990s. The book was aimed at young adults.
I'm guessing the book would have been a fiction/coming of age.
It is about a young girl (about 14 - 16) who goes on a vacation to somewhere tropical.
She meets a guy she falls in love with, I believe he was an employee who set up the umbrellas at the beach.
She would often got to the beach to tan and read, which is how they met.
She went on vacation to visit her grandma, her parents were not there.


The specific version of the book I read was hardcover without a dust cover. The image on the front had a rainbow and a picture of a young blonde girl. However this cover version was published in Europe so most likely the Canadian/American cover would have been different.

Does the girl feel like an ugly duckling, or is she overweight in her swimsuit, making her feel lucky to attract the umbrella boy? Or is she pretty and thin?
