Loving Summer by Kailin Gow
Summer has always looked forward to spending her summers at her Aunt's beach house with the Donovans. To her, summers at Aunt Sookie's beach house was magical, especially getting to spend time with the Donovans - her best friend Rachel and Rachel's brothers Nathaniel, and Drew. Here at Aunt Sookie's beach house, they can be anyone and anything they dreamed. For Summer, she had always wished to become as pretty as Rachel and for her brothers to think of her as more than Rachel's friend. For Nat and Drew, summers at Aunt Sookie's beach house meant fun and escape, a place where they go to with their mom and sister for the summer, away from city life. They never thought this summer would be different. They never thought things would change as much as they did...and it all began with them falling for and loving Summer.
I had heard so much about this book, and was really excited to read it! I ended up being disappointed though. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I did not love this book.
The whole book seemed very surface level. I can understand that for a young adult book, but then every guy falls in love with Summer. She kept finding herself caught between three different guys. I eventually found myself getting very into the book and rooting for one guy in particular. Until the book just stops. The ending seemed very abrupt to me. She never picks a guy either. I am interested to see what happens in the next book, and if she will make a decision.
