In 1955, the teenage June Juanico was persuaded by a friend to go and see an up-and-coming singer called Elvis Presley perform in Biloxi, Mississippi. June soon caught his eye, but after one wonderful evening together, a combination of bad luck and the demands of Elvis's touring conspired to keep them apart until May 1956, when they met up again. It was the start of an idyllic summer together, during which June fell in love, toured with Elvis in Florida and had to come to terms with dating the hottest property around. With an introduction by Presley's biographer, Peter Guralnick, and featuring many previously unpublished photographs, this is June's own account of that magical time. A bittersweet love story moulded by innocence and fame, the memoir provides a new insight into the man who would be King.

In what reads a like a high-school diary, clichés abound, intimate descriptions of sexual fumblings tell us more than we really want to know, and dialogue between the lovers sounds like a movie script in dire need of rewrite.... However, her description of a "special afternoon with just the two of us at the piano" with Presley singing "Unchained Melody" "just for you, baby" is touching. -- The New York Times Book Review, Leslie Chess Feller
