Dogs of Summer, by Andrea Abreu

Staff Pick

Much like summer itself, Abreu’s debut novel is so engrossing that when the end comes, you'll wonder where the time went. Capturing the intimacy of friendships in a visceral way--one reminiscent of Ferrante, but with a certain playfulness about it--this coming-of-age tale keeps its emotions close to the chest, resulting in an almost claustrophobic tone that keeps the reader on edge. Abreu is especially adept at portraying the sometimes very thin line between the platonic and the erotic often experienced in the early, formative years of a life.
