The Clique Summer Collection Dylan - tennis Young adult novel

This week’s stop at our local Out of the Closet yielded this YA novel, The Clique Summer Collection: Dylan, by Lisa Harrison. Here’s the loopy (moonball-y?) teaser on the back cover:

Dylan and her TV-host mom are off to Hawaii’s Aloha Tennis Open. While Merri-Lee interviews tennis’s wild child Svetlana “Tennis the Menace” Slootskyia, Dylan lets the tropical sun melt away the memory of getting dumped by two guys at the end of seventh grade. But between avocado mud masks and poolside naps, she falls in love with a preppy, tennis-obsessed hawtie. Dylan soon realizes the only way to score a date with him is to master the game. Can she convince moody Svetlana to spill the secrets of her tennis success, or will she end up oh-for-three in summer love?

“Hawties”? “Slootskyia”?! Ohmigawd! We’re not reading this, JFTR. At least not yet. Maaaybe if we find ourselves absolutely bored and poolside somewhere with a break in between a poolside nap and an avocado mud mask. Only then would we consider flipping through this to pass the time.
