Book Blog- Second Chance Summer
A powerful novel about hope and heartbreak, “as much about loss as it is about first love and friendship” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
The book opens with the news that Taylor's dad is terminally ill. The family decides to spend one last summer together at their vacation home on the lake after a five year absence. This is a rich story about family, loss and, ultimately, second chances. I could relate to Taylor's challenging relationships with her family and friends, and I enjoyed spending the summer with her and her family. I especially loved how the boy she crushes on, Henry, was sweet and uncomplicated,
and that the primary obstacle to the relationship was Taylor's own fear and guilt.
A great summer read!
