Getting Over Max Cooper
Marcelle Karp — 2022
Letting go is a beach. Sixteen-year-old Jazz Jacobson has always spent her summers on Fire Island. This year she'll be scooping ice cream during the day and hanging out with her friends at night. It's a charmed life: riding bikes, taking over lifeguard chairs, and soaking up the sun. Sure, she’s got a crush on the hot new surfer boy, and her best friend, Macy, is still not over that jerk , Max Cooper, but what's a summer without its drama? While Jazz starts to fall in love, Macy unravels, revealing exactly how not-over Max Cooper she really is. Boundaries are crossed and the edge of sanity is tested in Marcelle Karp's debut novel that celebrates the complicated dynamics of female friendship, and the heartbreaking ache of first love.
