Cruel Summer’s Cape Cod Guide for Teens
It is no secret that all of my books in the UNDERTOW series are basically a teenager’s guide to Cape Cod.
What to do, where to go, how to nag your parents.
Well – okay, maybe not that last one, but if you do, don’t point fingers at me.
In UNDERTOW, readers were introduced to such Cape Cod staples as Four Seas Ice Cream (a famed ice cream shop here on Cape Cod in Centerville that is featured in all the books as The Milk Way), Town Neck in Sandwich, Historic Centerville, Barnstable High School, The Hyannis (Barnstable) Marina (where Cerberus docks), Newport’s Breakers mansion, Quincy Harbor, and Sandy Neck.
STORMFRONT enlarges that sweep, adding in Craigville Pizza, the BHS football fields, the elusive Torrent Road home, and The Hot Chocolate Sparrow (The Raven).
But CRUEL SUMMER, which is a stand alone novel related to the series, shows Cape Cod in all its high summer glory. It features numerous beaches (Cahoon’s Hollow, Marconi, Nauset, and Bodfish), The Flying Horses of Martha’s Vineyard, Heritage Museum, Vineyard Vines, Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, Makonikey, The Welfleet Drive-In, Four Seas, Craigville Pizza, Nirvana Coffee House, The Boarding House, The Steamship Authority, and most of Main Street in Hyannis, including the Village Green.
Because of all the places that are featured in CRUEL SUMMER, I thought it would be wise to start a run-down of each spot in CRUEL SUMMER. That way, when you DO decide to visit the Cape, you know exactly where you want to go!
