Kyle's Island; Sally Derby

Kyle's Island Kyle's Island by Sally Derby
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Rather average tale about a boy learning lessons about life and growing older; takes place during the summer, when Kyle's family goes to their cottage in Michigan. Dad's left the family, and Mom needs to sell the cottage (bills, college funds, etc.).

Of course there's at least one Major Misunderstanding, abut there are Friends Found and Lessons Learned. I'm not sure why this was set in the 70s, except perhaps the author didn't think it plausible that kids would enjoy a summer on a lake without cell phones and Playstation and other electronic entertainments.
