Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Seventeenth Summer

Has anyone ever read or heard of a book called Seventeenth Summer by Maureen Daly? I believe it was written in 1942. It is my favorite book of all time but I cannot find another book like it or written by this author.

Yeah, that book is still in print, both in hardcover and paperback. She wrote a few other books since Seventeenth Summer, but none were as famous. She passed away last September-I found a newspaper obituary for her in the San Francisco Gate.

I haven't heard of a Seventeenth Summer movie, but I'll look around - if anybody else has, please let us know.

Re: Seventeenth Summer

I read it in 7th grade. It was okay. I didn’t feel like I was connecting to the characters though and in my opinion it moved a little slow.
