unimaginable zero summer by Leslie Stella
I found this one on the "books for school" table at Joseph Beth Booksellers along side classic summer books for students. To use the borrowed word, it is unimaginable to me what teacher would be requiring this book for what course, but I liked it a lot. The main character is a thirty-something named Verity who is getting ready to attend her high school reunion. The book is darkly comic and full of characters that I think I knew in high school too. I stayed up most of the night during a thunderstorm finishing this one.
