Debby Hunter | 3 comments book about a young teen girl in Florida (maybe the Keys), coming of age and discovering her sexuality. Possibly named American Made, but can't find it under that. I wish I could remember the main character's name, but I do not. I don't remember the author, either. Sorry, I know not much to go on.

(Had to add cover image and description--info wasn't on Goodreads, so I can see how it might've been hard to find here.)

Debby Hunter | 3 comments That's it! I remember the name Shylah now..thank you! It's not a classic or anything, but when I was a teen, it had a big impact on me for some reason. THANK YOU!

"impact for some reason".
The same thing happened to me with the movie http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Umbr... (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg)
when I was a teen. I hope your 2nd encounter with American Made is better for you than my 2nd encounter with Umbrellas.
After seeing it I decided it must have been hormones that took over my brain the 1st time. haha
