While I haven't read Summer Boys by Hailey Abbott, I see we have several other titles by her and they look like they would be summer romance books, too.
Meanwhile, here are three other titles you might like.
Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen.
A quiet, predictable Halley and Scarlett, her feisty defender, have been best friends since grade school. Growing up like sisters, they've shared everything except a bedroom,…. clothes, classes, and Friday nights. Then boys step into their teen lives. Scarlett's romance the summer before junior year has serious consequences when Michael dies in a motorcycle accident and she's left carrying his child. Halley's close relationship with her psychologist mother is fractured as the girl's friendship with secretive, irresponsible Macon Faulkner deepens into romance. To top things off, Grandma Halley is dying.
The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart.
A Seattle fifteen-year-old explains some of the reasons for her recent panic attacks, including breaking up with her boyfriend, losing all her girlfriends, tensions between her performance-artist mother and her father, and more. This book also has a sequel called The Boy Book.
Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty.
When her best friend, Hope, moves away from Pineville, New Jersey,
16-year-old Jessica Darling is devastated. Jessica is a fish out of
water at school, a stranger at home, and now -- with the only person
with whom she could really communicate gone -- more lost than ever. How
is she supposed to deal with the boy-and-shopping-crazy girls at school,
her dad's obsession with her track meets, and her nonexistent love life?
