The Forget-Me-Not Summer, by Leila Howland

Summary: Any expectation of summer fun comes crashing down when three sisters’ parents send them to Cape Cod to visit their aunt Sunny. Small-town life is not what these L.A. girls had in mind.

With the help of Aunt Sunny’s zany disposition and yummy brownies, though, the girls are quickly won over, and before Marigold, Zinnie, and Lily know it, they’re cracking lobster shells at clambakes, making new friends, and even organizing a local talent show.
