That Summer Reviews
This was the first book I read of Sarah Dessen, my ex-boyfriend gave me the movie tie in edition of How to Deal where it came That Summer and Someone Like You. After I finished reading it, I knew that Sarah Dessen was about to become one of my favorite authors.
As 15 year-old Haven struggles with the changes in the lives of all her dad, her mom, her older sister, and herself, she discovers that there is enough time for events to unwind to outcomes which are acceptable; which leaving open a future for better things. Her ever after will be the one which she creates.
First Sarah Dessen that disappointed me.... I hated the monotone of this book. I also felt as if Haven was not fully developed as a character.
The relaxed and believable voice of the young female narrator in this novel for young adults is something that not just teens can enjoy. Her dry wit and thoughtful observations about the ups and downs of her simple life recently complicated by the impending marriage of her older sister allow readers to smile and understand the agony of being "second born," living in a home altered by divorce, and feeling like everyone around you is different. This is a realistic, often sadly humorous look at one girl's struggle with change -- something we can all relate to.
I loved the book and it is in great condition, thank you very much. It's great to know that the purchase came just the way I expected it to :)
I can relate to the changes the character is going through as she's growing. It was honestly a great summer read for any teen.
