9781565129313: Ferris Beach

Ferris Beach is a place where excitement and magic coexist. Or so Mary Katherine "Katie" Burns, the only child of middle-aged Fred and Cleva Burns, believes. Shy and self-conscious, she daydreams about Ferris Beach, where her beautiful cousin, Angela, leads a romantic, mysterious life.It is the early 1970s, and when the land across the road from the Burns's historic house is sold to developers, Misty Rhodes-also from Ferris Beach-and her flamboyant parents move into the nearest newly built split-level. In contrast to Katie's composed, reserved, practical mother, Misty and her mother are everything Katie wants to be: daring, outrageous, fun. The two girls become inseparable, sharing every secret, every dream-until one fateful Fourth of July, when their lives change in a way they could never have imagined.In this classic McCorkle novel, the author's shrewd grasp of human nature creates characters that resonate with truth and emotion, and a story perfect for mothers and daughters to share and cherish.

From the Inside Flap:

"Whimsically entertaining and dramatically compelling."
--The Boston Globe
Kate Burns has heard of the magic of Ferris Beach all her life. Kate needs to believe in a little wonder. Shy and self-conscious, she lives with her distant, demanding mother and eccentric father.
Then Misty moves to town, from Ferris Beach, no less. She is everything Kate wants to be: daring, outrageous, and fun. The two girls grow up together, sharing secrets about everything--until one fateful Fourth of July when their lives change forever. . . .
"One of the best in the new generation of Southern writers . . . McCorkle hits all the right notes."
--Atlanta Journal & Constitution
