Lexile measure:
Annabel first sees him playing soccer near her house. His name is Esteban-she sees it on the back of his team shirt. He notices her, smiles, then looks back over his shoulder at her again. It is the beginning of summer in the resort town of Seaview. It is also the start of a romance between a young Colombian who came to town to work and the daughter of a local contractor whose crews are entirely Latino-new immigrants who are changing the face of Seaview. This is the summer of war in Iraq, and of Hurricane Katrina. But in Seaview there are other concerns. In Annabel's house her new boyfriend is at the top of the list. And Esteban's sister has harsh words for his choice of a girlfriend. M. E. Kerr weaves a compelling story of star-crossed love and a small-town problem of nationwide significance.
