Pilgrims Don’t Wear Pink

Stephanie Kate Strohm, May 2012.  Teenage Libby is off to intern at a living-history museum, Camden Harbor, where it’s always 1791.  The usual summer-camp shenanigans ensue: her roommate hates her, she’s denied her cell phone (since they won’t be invented for another 200 years), there’s been a series of mysterious ghost sightings, and she’s got a huge crush on the wrong cute boy.  The gay character is her BFF Dev, who’s in New York interning for a fashion magazine. Dev doesn’t play a huge role in the book, though he does show up at the end to save the day as only he can. This light summer read won’t change any lives, but it’s a good choice to read on a chaise lounge whilst sipping lemonade.
