Review: Who likes history as much as Libby Kelting? Who knows? Libby Kelting is the main character of Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink written by Stephanie Kate Strohm. For Libby Kelting the best summer before senior year is working as a counselor at Camden Harbor where it is always 1791 (the year it was built). Libby loves history and historical romance novels.

Libby has a very annoying roommate named Garrett. Garrett is a video-gaming loving, Star Trek loving geek. He is also a rookie newspaper reporter on the case of a ghost drowned sea captain. What or who is the ghost? Is Camden Harbor really haunted? "Throw in a summer fling with Cam, the hottest sailor in the harbor" but who may not be quite as he seems, and you have a very confusing summer for Libby.

This is for the most part a good book. I rate this book 4 stars. The beginning is confusing. I had to read it twice to really understand what was going on. Other than that, it is a good book. Overall, Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink is best for readers who enjoy a little mystery combined with romance. At the beginning I was not very interested, but it definitely gets better throughout the book. Stephanie Kate Strohm is an amazing author, and I encourage everyone to read her book.
