Irene has always dreamed of owning a beauty salon in sunny Los Angeles where she will re-create the hairstyles of Great Women of Literature. But she's just been fired from her own mother's salon for shampooing techniques that left patrons in tears. Now, forced to babysit while everyone else spends a glamorous summer at the beach, Irene wonders when real life will begin. Then she meets beautiful lifeguard Starla-and one of Starla's admirers starts noticing Irene. Things are getting complicated. Maybe its time Irene becomes the heroine of her own literary drama!

Professional reviews

"While Irene may not consider her summer to be epic, it is certainly a summer of personal milestones and self-discovery. At first, Irene is a teenager who feels tremendously sorry for herself at being forced into babysitting for two kids all summer. Jessica Almasy delivers all of Irene's personal outrage at this situation. As the summer progresses, Irene begins to grow up. Her newfound maturity is reflected in Almasy's voice; as Irene is transformed into a sympathetic character, the change is wholly believable. Almasy's portrayals of the other characters are also credible--from ultra-cool love interest Drew Fuller to the glamorous Starla, who thinks herself a poet. While the story is not complex, Almasy brings a universally human aspect to her narration. M.R.P. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
