Seasons in the Sun by Kristen Strassel

Summer has finally arrived, along with a boy who will forever change the life of fourteen-year-old Callie. After growing up hearing stories about Tristan Trevosier and his famous family, Callie finally meets him when he spends the summer on Martha's Vineyard. Seventeen-year-old Tristan is a hurricane of destruction and rebellion, and he quickly blows a hole right into Callie's sheltered life. Callie sees a side of Tristan that he doesn't show anyone else. She's determined to make everyone see what she sees in him.
Callie defies her parents by leaving the island with Tristan. But when his ugly habits rear their head, Callie realizes maybe she's the one who's wrong about him. He's beyond her help. But it's too late for her to walk away. This summer, she learns that love can be stronger than reason.

My Review:

I love when a writer goes back to a book and gives insight to their lives and how they originally meet.  Callie and Triston meet at Martha's Vineyard when they were very young.

Callie is working at her mothers restaurant and is a very sheltered child.


Triston is the son of a movie star and pretty much gets whatever he wants. He is out of control so his parents ship him off to his aunts house to try and settle him down.


When Triston meets Callie he is taken with the young lady and can't seem to get enough of her. Her mother doesn't want her seeing him since she thinks he's a bad influence.  So what does any young girl do? She does it anyway.


So when Triston up and leaves town she is heart broken. Especially since she thought she was helping him turn his life around.

This is a pre-qual to Because the Night and you can read them in either order.

She's worn many hats, none as flattering as her cowboy hat: banker, retail manager, fledgling web designer, world's worst cocktail waitress, panty slinger, now makeup artist and author.
