One Summer in the Old Town


Dublin Core


It's the end of 6th grade and like any kid, Matt yearns for the freedom from school that is summer vacation. Fortunately for him, he gets just that and more as the Florida sunshine ushers in another summer and a boy from New York City who may be a rival for Jenny's affections or might just turn out to be a friend for life. With a colorful cast of characters and the vibrant backdrop that is the Ancient City, Matt is sure to have a summer to remember.
