The “summer between” is the summer between high school and college. This is a youth novel that cleverly realizes that young people like to read about kids who are a little older than themselves. It has a You Tube playlist on the web which you can easily access with a google search. The protagonist, Brendon, begins the summer super cocky, but his experiences teach him that he is much more vulnerable than he thought. The author, Anne G’Fellers-Mason, is a native of Upper East Tennessee who lives in Jonesborough. She did her undergraduate work at Mars Hill, got a masters at East Tennessee State and an MFA at Hollins. She works for Heritage Alliance.
