Life doesn’t always go according to plan. But sometimes, that’s just what you need.
This is what happens to Kate Campbell, the young woman at the center of our July Spotlight Pick: Rock the Boat by Beck Dorey-Stein. When her dreamy life in Manhattan suddenly implodes, she’s forced to move back home with her parents to Sea Point, a small town full of quirky locals, quaint bungalows, and beautiful beaches. As Kate plots to win back everything she thinks she’s lost, two other old friends have found themselves back home in Sea Point without a plan as well.
The result is a warm, witty summer read about three friends learning that there aren’t any shortcuts to growing up. You’ll have so much to discuss about what happens when plans go awry, how life doesn’t always look like what we expected, and the power of family and friends to put us back together.
Join us on Tuesday, July 27 at 7:30PM ET for a Virtual Happy Hour to discuss Rock the Boat—with a special appearance from author Beck Dorey-Stein!
