All Chelsea wants to do this summer is hang out with her best friend, hone her talents as an ice cream connoisseur, and finally get over Ezra, the boy who broke her heart. But when Chelsea shows up for her summer job at Essex Historical Colonial Village (yes, really), it turns out Ezra’s working there too. Which makes moving on and forgetting Ezra a lot more complicated…even when Chelsea starts falling for someone new. Maybe Chelsea should have known better than to think that a historical reenactment village could help her escape her past.

Because those who don’t learn from the past are doomed to repeat it….

This book was so much fun! The main character works at a historical reenactment of Colonial times and partakes in the usual war between the teenagers of her reenactment and the teenagers of the Civil War reenactment just down the road. Of course she ends up liking one of the Civil War workers. Lots ...
