cover-FINAL-05-05-14The book opens with the main character, Jacques O’Larrity, a fifteen year old boy with unruly black hair, fussing about having to rise before dawn on the first morning of summer vacation to open his mother’s coffee shop. His mother, a single mom since Jacques was three, thinks Jacques is old enough to start taking on more responsibility. The Parisian Bean is located on the sound side of Buzby Island in the town of Buzby Beach. In the first chapter we meet several Buzby Island residents, long-term and newcomers, from the bakery delivery truck driver who actually owns the bakery to the daughter of the couple that bought the bar next door to the coffee shop and turned it into an ice cream shop.

Jacques goes through a short-lived crush on Ginger Mumples, the girl from the ice cream shop next door, before he meets and falls for Scarlett, a girl from the western part of the state visiting her sister in Wilmington. Scarlett is mildly disfigured from a car accident, but Jacques doesn’t notice Scarlett’s scars. He’s captivated by her eyes and good humor. Scarlett’s father, who objects to her seeing a local beach bum, comes and takes her home, leaving Jacques broken hearted.

Meanwhile, Jacques childhood summer friend, Cienna, the granddaughter of the owners of the bookstore across the street from the coffee shop, arrives on the island for her extended summer visit. While the two have known each other for years, they’ve never seen each other as anything but friends during her previous summers on the island. When she arrives and finds Jacques in puppy love with Scarlett, Cienna’s hopes for a summer of romance with Jacques appear dashed until Scarlett is removed from the picture.

While his love life is in turmoil, Jacques hears from his estranged father, Sean O’Larrity, absent these twelve years. Sean – grown up, sober, and somewhat successful as a motivational speaker – wants to reconnect with his son. Jacques has to decide whether to see his father and if he does, whether to let Sean back in his life.

Sean presses the issue by showing up at the coffee shop, leading to a tense confrontation between Sean on one side, and Jacques, Scout–a quiet Afghan War vet who watches over Jacques and Marie, and Joe Bagley–the bakery truck driver on the other. Sean backs down and leaves after telling Jacques to think about coming to see him.

With Scarlett gone and his dad in town, Jacques finds Cienna a comforting presence and the two of them grow closer as friends. On the day Jacques decides to go face Sean, they share their first kiss.

As the book concludes, an uneasy truce is achieved between Jacques’s mother and father. Jacques agrees to keep in touch with Sean and to give him the chance to earn back the title, Dad. Jacques and Cienna find the summer love both had hoped to find in each other and when Cienna’s visit ends, Jacques learns that she won’t be gone long. Her father is retiring from the military and moving to the island to take over the bookstore. Cienna will be back in time for school. The book ends with Jacques standing at the foot of the stairs to Cienna’s grandparents’ apartment, promising to wait for her.
