about

The New York Times bestselling debut novel from critically acclaimed author Jodi Lynn Anderson follows three very different girls as they discover the secret to finding the right boy, making the truest of friends, and picking the perfect Georgia peach.

Murphy McGowen has bright green eyes, a reputation as the wildest girl in Bridgewater, and a way of getting out of all the trouble she gets into. But when she's caught stealing from the Darlington Orchard, she's forced to repay her debt picking peaches in the hot Georgia sun.

Leeda Cawley-Smith has professionally whitened teeth and the softest skin her boyfriend has ever touched. Unfortunately, Leeda's parents aren't too keen on her being touched anymore. Now Leeda's country-club summer is out the window—she'll be getting a serious sock tan working at her uncle's peach orchard instead.

Birdie Darlington used to dance around her family's orchard picking peaches for fun. But now that her parents are getting divorced, Birdie would rather spend the summer in the A/C eating Thin Mints than pick another peach—too bad she doesn't have a choice.

Thrown together at Darlington Orchard, Murphy, Leeda, and Birdie discover what it means to find a real soul mate, and that sometimes cute boys know a lot about peach cider. And, of course, they learn the trick to picking a perfect peach. One thing's for sure—it's going to be a juicy summer.

Jodi Lynn Anderson is theNew York Timesbestselling author ofPeaches,Tiger Lily, and the popular May Bird trilogy. She lives in Asheville, N.C., with her husband, her son, and an endless parade of stray pets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a Cute Book! I finished this book in one day and loved it. Gave a good message about friendship, but wasn't too cheesy for me to get bored of. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone of any age.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Peaches: An Average Summer Book Great summer read. I generally enjoyed it even though the subject of teenage friends is quite overdone. I feel average about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book This book was really sweet. It is a perfect read for the summer. The book is about three girls who know each other but are somewhat connected to each other. They all end up spending their summer at a Georgia peach farm, where they learn about themselves, how to love, be friends, and care for one another. A good coming of age novel for youger readers, but still great for older readers. A must read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazing Story of Unexpected Friendship This was one of the best books I have ever read. Seriously it was, it is 100% better than the description makes it out to be and I definitely recommend it. Its the first in a three book series (so far) and it is an amazing tale of friendship. I can't even describe how good this book was.
