Celebrated Summer is a unique and moving coming of age story set during the summer of 1989 in the seaside university town of Santa Zita, California. Intellectual partier Tim Page has just finished his sophomore year of college and decided to stay in Santa Zita for the summer.
His goal: fall in love. He gets a job at a movie theater where he meets a curious cast of locals, including Caleb, the antic assistant manager; his ex-girlfriend, the perpetually stoned August; and their friend April, who seems perfect for Tim in every way–except she’s still in high school. As his feelings for April grow, he is drawn into a conspiracy that threatens to change the course of his life forever.
Described as “Marcel Proust meets Bret Easton Ellis” and “Clerks as written by E. M. Forster,” CELEBRATED SUMMER is a hilarious, poignant, and sometimes heart-breaking tale of lost innocence, obsession, and the price we must all pay to make our dreams come true.
