Willa Havisham is Cape Cod's summer girl, and this summer brings new things for everyone. Most notably, a long-lost brother Willa never knew existed. While Willa's mother, the famous wedding planner, is not so excited about this discovery (it's Willa's father's son), Willa wants to know everything there is to know about this new boy, including why it took him so long to find her. Between family, friends, and Willa's new secret project, it's going to be quite a summer!

I watch until I can''t see JFK''s bike anymore. I wipe away the tears. Get a grip, Willa. It''s only six weeks. Six weeks. That''s nothing. He''ll be back before you know it. I check my watch. Good. I still have an hour before I''m due at work. My family owns the Bramblebriar Inn in town. I work a shift each day, helping out in the kitchen or serving meals. But in my free time, with JFK gone, I''ll need some extra provisions of my two other favourite things: books and candy.

Books and candy.
Books and candy.
All a girl needs for a summer so dandy.

That, and a boyfriend, but he''ll be back soon.'
