Description

In this funny, big-hearted friendship story, perfect for fans of Wendy Mass and Linda Urban, twelve-year-old Edie and her impossibly cool cousin, Rae, set out to complete a mysterious list of "Good Ideas for Summertime" that their eccentric late grandmother wrote back when she was their age.

But good ideas? Most of them seem like bad ideas. Reckless. Foolish. Ridiculous. Still, by accomplishing everything on the list, rule-abiding Edie feels certain that she can become the effortlessly brave adventurer she dreams of being, just like her daring cousin and bold grandmother. For this one summer at least, bad ideas are the best shot she has at becoming who she wants to be.

Bad Idea Number One: It's time for a new set of rules.

Review quote

With charm, wit, and just the right amount of awkwardness, Stewart offers a fresh take on the classic coming-of-age tale, one that remembers with ease a time when summer meant freedom and freedom meant finding yourself.--Booklist Stweart's whimsical contemporary coming-of-age story is full of sweetness and moments of sheer chutzpah.--School Library Journal A bright, funny gem that charms with its spot-on sarcasm and wit.--Kirkus Reviews

About Kiera Stewart

Kiera Stewart is a writer for teens and tweens. Her qualifications include never having gotten wisdom teeth, and having the same best friend since eighth grade.

Her most exciting years were between birth and age four, when she lived in three different countries. After a whirlwind toddlerhood, she settled into the suburbs of Washington, D.C., where she stayed through college. After graduating from The American University with a degree in psychology, she moved to Savannah, Georgia, and stayed for seven interesting but bug-infested years, before returning to the DC area to work in television publicity.

She now lives in Sonoma County, California, but spends a lot of time in Latin America, where she is working on her next novel and learning Spanish. When she's not writing, Kiera teaches yoga and English as a Second Language.

Kiera is the author of three novels: Fetching; How to Break a Heart; and The Summer of Bad Ideas. You can learn more and connect with Kiera at www.kierastewart.com.
