Summer Replacement
Wednesday, February 25, 2004  4:20:00 PM

by Ann Herrick



Young Adult/Teen
Synopsis:
As a favor, Cathy eagerly agrees to pretend she is Dan''s girlfriend for the summer when their families vacation at the same beach. With a background of sun, surf and sand, they develop a friendship that is on the verge of turning romantic, when who should arrive but Lisa Kendall, Dan''s old girlfriend! In three days, Lisa ruins Cathy''s relationship with Dan. In retaliation, Cathy feigns interest in Steve, Lisa''s handsome older brother. But soon enough Cathy learns that a fake romance can get out of hand and pretending about her feelings leads to complications she never imagined.

Chapter 1
"I'VE GOT NEWS for you, Cathy Price." Mom shook a finger at me. "We're spending the summer in Chatfield, and that's final." She tossed the tomatoes she'd been slicing into the lettuce. "It's a wonderful opportunity to get away from it all. Your brother is thrilled with the idea."
"Jason," I replied, "is only seven years old. He's easily thrilled." I didn't mention that Dan Stedman had finally given me a ride home on the last day of school, after I'd been sending him telepathic messages for weeks, or that after making that much progress, I didn't want to lose any ground over the summer.
Dad walked into the kitchen and snitched piece of tomato from the salad.
"Hi, Dad. Mom and I have just been talking." I slipped my arm through Dad's, ignoring the sidelong glance from Mom. "I have so many projects that I should really be working on this summer. Couldn't I just stay with Samantha? Or I could even stay right here and watch the house. That way I could feed Ralph." Ralph was our big, orange, affectionate but persnickety cat.
"Certainly not!" Dad sounded positively horrified. "You're only fifteen!"
"Almost sixteen," I reminded him. Sixteen sounded so much older than fifteen. Dad wasn't the only one I wanted to impress with how mature I was. I felt I needed every ounce of sophistication I could muster if I was going to get anywhere with Dan. After all, he had turned seventeen in May and would be a senior in the fall, not to mention editor of Scattered Leaves, our school newspaper. Even though I would be finally making it to upperclassdom as a junior, it was still embarrassing that I would not turn sixteen until October. Plus, my only claim to fame so far was being a third-string reporter on the school paper. I considered myself lucky when Dan assigned me to interview the new school nurse.
