Avalon Summer is a coming-of-age summer romance set in 1965 in the resort town of Avalon, Santa Catalina Island. On the brink of adulthood, three men and four women experience love, heartbreak, and self-discovery against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, the Watts race riots, and Top 40 radio. Sil: Surfer, womanizer, and draft dodger. His motto, never in love, only in heat, is about to be challenged. Candy: The beautiful young actress, driven by ambition, and haunted by the past. J. T.: A black man trying to succeed in a white mans world, and tempted by forbidden love. Donna: Looking for love in all the wrong places, and harboring a dark secret. Lynn: She came to Avalon for a change of scenery, but found romance instead. Waxie: Easy-going teen now torn between his family and the girl he loves. Jimmy: Sensitive and brooding, he has this one last summer to mend a broken heart before going off to war. Their lives will intersect in Avalon, and they will discover truths about themselves, life, and love on the Island of Romance.
