    Joshua Mohr: IMG Your Imagination, Your Fingerprint



    When I was in grad school, a teacher told our workshop that if a published novel is 300 pages, the writer had to generate 1,200 along the way. I... Continue »

Publisher Comments:

Bittersweet, funny, and achingly honest, Five Summers is a story of friendship, love, and growing up that is perfect for fans of Ann Brashare's The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants  and Judy Blume's Summer Sisters. 

 

Four best friends, five summers of camp memories

 

Emma, Skylar, Jo, and Maddie have all come back to camp for a weekend of tipsy canoe trips to the island, midnight skinny dipping in the lake, and an epic game of capture the flag—boys versus girls. But the weekend isn't quite as sunwashed as they'd imagined as the memories come flooding back. . . .

The summer we were nine: Emma was branded “Skylars friend Emma” by the infamous Adam Loring . . .

The summer we were ten: Maddie realized she was too far into her lies to think about telling the truth . . .

The summer we were eleven: Johanna totally freaked out during her first game of Spin the Bottle . . .

The summer we were twelve: Skylars love letters from her boyfriend back home were exciting to all of us—except Skylar . . .

Our last summer together: Emma and Adam almost kissed. Jo found out Maddies secret. Skylar did something unthinkable . . . and whether we knew it then or not, five summers of friendship began to fall apart.

 A young adult book with a friendship story that will last long after the last s'more is gone.

 

Synopsis:

A New York Times bestseller

 

Shes got it all figured out.

 

Or does she? When it comes to relationships, Remys got a whole set of rules.

 

Never get too serious. Never let him break your heart. And never, ever date a musician.

 

But then Remy meets Dexter, and the rules dont seem to apply anymore.

 

Could it be that shes starting to understand what all those love songs are about?

 

“Remy and Dexter jump off the pages into the hearts of readers, who will wish for a romance like this of their own.” —Booklist

When Cricket, a gifted inventor, steps out from his twin sister's shadow and back into Lola's life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.

"I have three simple wishes. They're really not too much to ask.
The first is to attend the winter formal dressed like Marie Antoinette."
(In my opinion one of the best openings to a book)

After reading Anna and the French Kiss I could not wait to get my hands on a copy of Lola and the Boy Next Door. It turned out to be everything and more! I really enjoyed it!

Stephanie Perkins wowed me with her writing style and characters. Like Anna, I could relate to the characters in at least one way. When you think of chick-lit you might think of flat, typical stereotyped girls, but when you pick up one of Perkins' works you get a real story. Everything about this book felt real and was still creative. Lola has a very crazy fashion sense, and Cricket has his signature pinstripe pants AND I really want to see Lola's formal dress in real life! To make this book even more awesome Anna and Etienne St. Clair play a role in the book! They made me just smile and gush. Also, I love how there are still different, realistic problems that come up throughout the book. It made many characters grow in their development.

I would recommend this book to anyone that likes a cute, light read. And people that like book that make you smile! :) (I know I did... a lot)
