Description
“[A] witty, heartfelt debut novel about a belated coming-of-age.”—The New York Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice)

Old friends discover how much has changed (and how much has stayed the same) when they reunite in their seaside hometown for one unforgettable summer—from the New York Times bestselling author of From the Corner of the Oval

When Kate Campbell’s life in Manhattan suddenly implodes, she is forced to return to Sea Point, the small town full of quirky locals, quaint bungalows, and beautiful beaches where she grew up. She knows she won’t be home for long; she’s got every intention (and a three-point plan) to win back everything she thinks she’s lost. 

Meanwhile, Miles Hoffman—aka “The Prince of Sea Point”—has also returned home to prove to his mother that he’s capable of taking over the family business, and he’s promised to help his childhood best friend, Ziggy Miller, with his own financial struggles at the same time. Kate, Miles, and Ziggy converge in Sea Point as the town faces an identity crisis when a local developer tries to cash in on its potential. The summer swells, and white lies and long-buried secrets prove as corrosive as the salt air, threatening to forever erode not only the bonds between the three friends but also the landscape of the beachside community they call home.

Full of heart and humor—and laced with biting wit—Rock the Boat proves that even when you know all the back roads, there aren’t any shortcuts to growing up.

        July 12, 2021
        In this charming if predictable debut novel (after the memoir From the Corner of the Oval), three 30-somethings try to get their lives on track. Kate Campbell has “given all of her twenties” to her boyfriend in New York City. Then he leaves her, which also spells the end of her job at his family’s public relations agency. Kate returns home to Sea Point, N.J., and her old bartending job at a thriving hotel owned by Jo Hoffman. Miles, Jo’s son, who’s been floundering in San Francisco with an unused business degree, soon returns in order to prove to his mom he can take over the family business, and to help out his friend Ziggy Miller. Ziggy’s stayed in Jersey all along, working with his contractor dad, Zeke. But when Zeke dies of a heart attack while fulfilling a client’s request for “the world’s most savage man cave,” he leaves the books a mess and Ziggy unmoored. That is, until Ziggy catches up with Kate. While it’s no surprise that things turn out just fine for Kate, Miles—who develops an interest in cooking—and Ziggy, Dorey-Stein captures a strong sense of their feeling stymied now that their glory days have passed them by. It’s a modest story, but it delivers on its promise. Agent: Becky Sweren, Aevitas Creative Management.
