It wasn't the summer vacation he'd planned, nor was it the summer vacation he wanted.

Since his mother's death four years ago, Eric Van der Haas has spent two weeks with his brother Aaron. The guy is a stranger—an angry stranger—and yet Eric finds himself delivering an RV across the country with said brother. Let the fighting begin.

And then there’s his brooding young cousin, who has somehow become his dad’s ward for a few months. She might be a beauty, but she’s also a bear. Finally throw in his best friend Samantha, who is always cheerful and really gets in the way of a bad mood. Those two can drive a person crazy, although they might kill one another in the back of the RV before the trip ends.

Mostly there are miles of regrets and questions and heartache, stretching across an entire country and half a decade. If God wants the Van der Haas family to heal, this is the place to do it. Or maybe it’s time for the family to separate for good. It’s a toss-up which it will be, and Eric isn’t sure which outcome he’s rooting for. Mostly he just wants this ridiculous summer to end.

Adventure, danger, romance… Welcome to the Boys of Summer, a Christian new adult series for teens and anyone who appreciates the challenges of stepping into adulthood.
