All I Need, by Susane Colasanti
In sum, nothing much happens.
Colasanti can be good when she wants to, but here she merely phones in her book. It's a lazy affair and lacks a story, any meaningful character development, or the vaguest attempt to be contemporary (we're treated to yet another example of adolescents who worship 80s music, don't appear to own a smart phone, and have never heard of social media). And worst of all, it takes place on a beach. Enough said!
