As a British family of six takes its annual beach holiday, narrator Ell Potter's delivery is informed by the voice of the unnamed, ungendered young adult narrator. Connection and joy have always been the context of vacations with Cousin Hope, who lives at the shore. This particular summer will end with Hope's wedding and begins with the arrival of the two American brothers, left with Hope by their mother. Kit, the elder, is golden in appearance and attitude. He overshadows his brother and even the narrator's beautiful sister, Mattie. Potter's narration focuses on the emotional arc, tone, and characterizations of this story. Listeners will enjoy this finely crafted novel in which time and traditions endure amid plot twists and the protagonist's struggle to find his footing. S.W.
