September Girls breaks the mold in enough ways to be highly entertaining. A male first-person narrator breathes life into what might otherwise have been a tired, mythical-creature-in-the-real-world novel. It’s edgier, flightier and more tongue-in-cheek than similar works, but lags noticeably through the middle. A worthy beach read.
Sam and his older brother have been dragged to the Outer Banks for the summer, a trip that might have been a lovely family vacation if it weren’t their dad’s sad attempt at male bonding following the dissolution of his marriage and Sam’s mother’s sudden abandonment. Finding themselves on a island quickly becomes trippy; time passes strangely and ethereal blonde girls float into their lives in dangerous ways. (HARPERTEEN, Jun., 352 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780061255632, HC, 14 & Up)
