That Summer

That Summer
By Sarah Dessen

208 pages
4 hours and 38 minutes listening time

Grade C-

Ok here is the skivvy with this book. It was cute, it was a YA, and it was a very quick read. I thought it was cute how the main character wanted everything about her life to go back to the way it was "that summer" when she felt everything was perfect. I liked how she grew and learned that things just weren't as they seemed.

As cute as this book was....it was forgettable. I really love this author, and I plan on reading all of her books, because the latest one I read that I will be reviewing later tonight as well The Truth about Forever, was wonderful. But this one, really was forgettable.

So if you want something really really light for the beach....this would answer your calling. If you are looking for life changing....that it is not.

Thanks for the review. I'm actually looking for something lighter. I just finished The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and murder mysteries are a little rough poolside...

OH this would be perfect to read after TGWTDT because that book is way intense. This one is way light, and doesn't really make you think.
