Penny is a level-headed eighteen year old who has spent all of her
high school summers working part time in a little bakery on the boardwalk
known as The Breadbox. But when Penny's senior year ends and she
prepares to spend her last summer filling orders and enjoying the scent
of freshly baked bread, the manager Odette claims this year they need
to hire another part-timer. Penny dreads bringing in some rowdy teenager
she doesn't even think they need, but The Breadbox holds a secret that
Penny will soon realize she can't handle on her own. New friendships and
perhaps even romance will blossom as the relaxing summer Penny was
hoping for is flipped upside down. (insert fresh prince of bel-air reference here)
Enjoy a quiet time of fun in the sun with this summer VN- until everything
explodes up in the air like fireworks in the sky.
Brought to you by:
Penny is the name changeable protagonist who is probably a little too mature for her age. She can be uptight at times, and often ends up managing things in The Breadbox more than it's forgetful owner. She has a passion for photography, and enjoys working on the boardwalk so she can take pictures of the ocean when she gets off work.
The owner of The Breadbox, and more than a little scatterbrained. She's grown up with the bakery and would be content doing nothing but running it for the rest of her life. She has trouble with technology, but a love for TV, specifically what Penny thinks of as cheesy soap operas. In order to keep her affairs in order she'll often leave sticky notes all over the bakery so she doesn't forget anything. She has a fearsome rivalry with her sister, who is the manager of the cafe across the street.
Charismatic, cheerful, and someone who parties hard, Gale is exactly the kind of person Penny dreads to come work at the Breadbox. He's relentlessly flirtatious and seems to have something about him that draws people in. Despite his devil may care appearance he's very caring, even if he can be a bit dense at times.
Looking at Ryan, it's hard to tell when he's actually paying attention to any given thing. He's quiet and his rather grungy wardrobe gives him an unprofessional look. Despite his seemingly lazy attitude, he loves cooking and has the capacity to be an excellent worker. Due to a long history of home-schooling he tends to be rather awkward around others.
Sofia is Odette's sister. To the public eye she seems outgoing and very friendly, but for reasons unknown to Penny she and Odette have never gotten along, as long as she's known them. They're constantly sending each other nasty notes via one of the cafe's workers, Trish, who seems content to fuel the rivalry between them as well as the two businesses.
Muffy is a quiet girl who seems to have some strange interest in Ryan. She's a singer who has recorded several songs, despite her outwardly, nearly painfully shy appearance.
Nicole is Gale's ex-girlfriend, who he's on surprisingly good terms with. She loves photography as well, and Penny is overjoyed to find a kindred spirit.
A rude teen who works at the cafe across the street from the Breadbox. She's got a superiority complex and has no qualms about putting down Penny, or the tiny bakery she works in.
