The Best Worst Summer - By Elizabeth Eulberg (hardcover) : Target

What is this book about?

A story about two summers – three decades apart – and the box of secrets linking them together.

This is going to be the worst summer ever for Peyton. Her family moved, and she had to leave her best friend behind. Then . . . she comes across a box buried in her backyard, with a message: I’m so sorry. Please forgive me.

Back in 1989, it’s going to be the best summer ever for Melissa and Jessica. They have time to goof around and they’re even going to bury a time capsule! But when one girl’s family secret starts to unravel, things may not go exactly as planned.

In alternating chapters, from Peyton in present day to Melissa three decades earlier (a time with no cell phones, no social media, and camera film that took days to develop, but also a whole lot of freedom), a story of a mystery that two sets of characters will never forget.

Prior to the program, first time program attendees may receive a call to confirm registration information for safety issues. If we are unable to confirm information, you will not be let in the day of the program.
