Summerland
by Elin Hilderbrand, Hatchette Book Group

This week brings the official start of summer, and for beach readers that means one thing: an Elin Hilderbrand novel. Though all of Hilderbrand’s novels are set on Nantucket Island, her real home, and many heroines look something like Hilderbrand herself –brightly blonde, almost beautiful – each novel manages to stand on its own and satisfy in its own way. In “Summerland,” four Nantucket High seniors are involved in a car accident, and the driver, Penny Alistair, is killed. The survivors do not escape damage: Penny’s twin brother remains in a coma, and the other two passengers, Penny’s boyfriend Jake and best pal Demeter, are laid waste emotionally. Demeter and her family are so traumatized that they relocate to Australia, but they cannot blot out the memories of the tragedy, which was caused by a secret the girl cannot confess. This is first-rate Hilderbrand and perfect beach reading.

Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco and Craig Robinson are a few of the many stars who play themselves in ‘This is the End.’ Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco and Craig Robinson are a few of the many stars who play themselves in ‘This is the End.’

There is a new wave of apocalyptic comedies hitting the screen, and “This is the End” is definitely the best to date.

Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel star as themselves. Like all the comedies scripted by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the central theme is the relationship between two male friends who are struggling to maintain that friendship. While Rogen has gone on to become a famous Hollywood star, Baruchel has remained on the sidelines, trying his best to not to be changed by Tinseltown. The two have grown apart as friends, but when Baruchel is in L.A. for a weekend, he reluctantly joins Rogen at a James Franco-hosted party high in the Hollywood hills.

Surfing shows the strength of survivors  Surfing shows the strength of survivors

There’s a lot to get to this week.

First off, all that stuff I wrote recently about weaves being small in June? Well, I guess that was a mistake.

There were some waves around this week, and not just over the weekend when tropical storm Andrea rolled by, throwing some nice, clean swell at the beach. There were waves with faces of 5 feet or better, and there were also plenty of surfers catching rides.

Surfers packed the well-known spots, but pretty much anywhere you could find a peak, there was already a surfer waiting for the wave.

The 28th Street beach: my little patch of paradise by Melissa Trabbold

Ever since I can remember, I have been going to the same beach – the 28th Street beach in Ocean City. Now I am 21, and I have grown to love that beach with an admittedly proprietary appreciation.

Going up the old, splintery wooden steps and stepping onto the hot sand was the start of my beach day – which was almost every day of those summers that I spent in Ocean City. I loved seeing all the familiar faces and the colorful beach gear as I walked down the vast plane of sand to get to “my spot.”

Motorcyle Poker Run helps these slowpokes crossing the road get to the other side

Every year during their nesting season, hundreds of turtles are killed trying to cross the roads of Cape May County.

Be it a diamondback terrapin, snapping turtle, painted turtle, box turtle, red-bellied turtle, red-eared slider or mud turtle – all of which are found locally – few can survive a run-in with a motor vehicle.

Ask Wendy by Wendy Williams, William Morrow.Want some wisdom on man drama, family drama, body image drama or “mama drama”? Wendy Williams has an answer. But it may not be a good answer. The problem with “Ask Wendy,” subtitled “Straight-Up Advice for All the Drama in Your Life,” is that all too often, it serves up easy answers and pep talks without substance. Need dental work and can’t afford it? Save up and go to the dentist. Need to lose weight? You can do it, girlfriend! Husband dresses like a slob? Buy him some new jeans and a nice polo shirt. When it comes to advice, the ubiquitous TV host may have limited credentials –her resume includes stints on “Dancing with the Stars” and “Drop Dead Diva,” along with her own lifestyle show – but Williams brings equal parts sass and brass to the problems facing contemporary women, and manages to score a few good-sense points.
