A sweet, tender middle-grade story of two boys finding first love with each other over a seaside summer.

Jeremy is not excited about the prospect of spending the summer with his dad and his uncle in a seaside cabin in Oregon. It's the first summer after his parents' divorce, and he hasn't exactly been seeking alone time with his dad.

He doesn't have a choice, though, so he goes ... and on his first day takes a walk on the beach and finds himself intrigued by a boy his age running by. Eventually, he and Runner Boy (Evan) meet -- and what starts out as friendship blooms into something neither boy is expecting ... and also something both boys have been secretly hoping for.

Perfect for fans of Heartstopper by Alice Oseman. This touching story features a heart-melting romance, but also touches on important themes of having to handle family dissolution and toxic masculinity. Gorgeously written by a rising talent!
