More events to come, but here’s where I’ll be reading & signing THE SUMMER LIST in June. I’d love to see you!
Thrilled to see THE SUMMER LIST in The Globe & Mail’s Summer Reading list: Cool Reads.
“Shades of Jodi Picoult…” !

Thrilled that THE SUMMER LIST is on PopSugar’s summer reading list: Best New Books to Put in Your Beach Bag.
“Two childhood friends — once inseparable, now estranged — meet 17 years later. Can an invitation to a grownup scavenger hunt, one of their favorite activities from childhood, bring them back to where they once were? The Summer List is a sparkling debut novel filled with nostalgia that will make you long for your childhood friends and carefree summer days.”
THE SUMMER LIST is taking its melatonin & resting up for one busy summer traveling around social media!
I am SO excited about this event! I’ll be in San Diego on June 10 with 20+ other amazing book club authors, including keynote speaker Jenna Blum, for Adventures by the Book‘s Book Club Bingo day. It’s going to be a fun day of games, discussions, giveaways and more. All proceeds from book sales go to the San Diego Public Library.
I’ll be giving away EARLY finished copies of THE SUMMER LIST (on sale June 26).
See you there!
Choosing your book club titles for summer? I hope you’ll consider the THE SUMMER LIST. With relatable themes (rekindled girlhood friendship, mothers & daughters, first love), a summery lakeside setting, and twisty scavenger hunt plot, I think it’d make an excellent pick.
Here are some discussion questions to get you started—The Summer List_Reader’s Guide (spoiler alert).
I love to talk to book clubs, so please reach out if you’re interested in an in-person or Skype visit.
Thrilled that Coastal Living picked THE SUMMER LIST as one of its 2018 Best Books for Summer! “Page-turners for lazy long weekends.”
“Doan’s characters leap off the page…[an] accomplished debut novel…Doan’s pleasant mix of mystery plus high school nostalgia will please readers who grew up with the novels of Judy Blume.”
Wow, thank you Publishers Weekly! Read the whole review here.
