I want to spend summer vacation practising scales, soloing and the theory behind it. I need some suggestions for a good book that will help me understand what I'm doing - and go beyond the mediocre job I do now.

Complete Idiot's Guide to Music Theory, FTW. It's good for beginners and more advanced music theory-ers, AND it comes with an ear training CD. You can also use it as a mini music theory course because it has exercises throughout.
