Evan Hunter's Last Summer is one of the most under-rated novels of all time.
Evan Hunter's Last Summer is one of the most under-rated novels of all time. It captures a period and the personalities of three teens like no other. the characters are very real, and this is no sugar-coated nostalgia. The feelings are raw and real, told from the perspective of one of the teens described. In fact, none of the characters' ethnicities are ever addressed in this book and, indeed, we are never even told their last names-let alone what their nationalities or ethnicities are!)

Last Summer - Evan Hunter. We spent last summer, when I was just sixteen, on an island mistakenly named Greensward, its shores only thinly vegetated with beach grass and plum, its single forest destroyed by fire more than twenty years before. David was taller than I last summer, a strapping six-footer who’d been lifting weights for four years, ever since he was twelve. I’d always liked his looks, from the first day I met him. He had broad shoulders even then, a narrow waist, chest and abdominal muscles as clean as Alley Oop’s. His eyes were blue, flecked with white, his hair a dusty blond.
