The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the Best Burger in Los Angeles) by Amy Spalding
Who’s it For: Teens
If you’d like to start your Summer Reading off right with a light hearted summer romance, look no further than The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the Best Burger in Los Angeles) by Amy Spalding. Abby Ives is all set to have a fantastic summer. Thanks to her hard work on her plus size style blog, she’s landed an internship at her favorite retro-inspired fashion boutique, handling their social media for the summer. She’s really excited because the internship usually leads to part time job in the fall! But this year the boutique has hired two interns! Abby will have to compete for that job against the other intern: a mysterious young woman named Jordi Perez. Jordi’s specialty is photography, and her photos are so sophisticated, and Jordi is so mature, Abby is sure that Jordi will get the job. Abby can’t stop thinking about Jordi, and soon it’s not just because of the competition… Abby’s pretty sure she’s falling in love with the artsy and enigmatic Jordi Perez!
In addition to being a fun and heartwarming romance, this book has great messages about body positivity, family relationships, friendships and how they change, not judging people based on first impressions, and I haven’t even mentioned the cheeseburgers! (There are a lot of cheeseburgers in this book!) Find it in our catalog
