Synopses & Reviews

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:

Anna can't wait for her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a good job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. So she's not too thrilled when her father unexpectedly ships her off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair, the perfect boy. The only problem? He's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her crush back home. Will a year of romantic near-misses end in the French kiss Anna awaits?

"Magical. Anna and the French Kiss really captures the feeling of being in love." - Cassandra Clare, author of The Mortal Instruments series

Anna and the French Kiss charms [readers] with its Parisian setting and très bien boy.”

The writing was a little simple, but the book was absolutely enjoyable. It is a cute, YA romance book, which are fun for a quick, happy read. Anna and the French Kiss keeps you giggling and hiding in embarrassment along with the main character, Anna. I had so much fun reading this; I was smiling the whole time. I often wished I could be Anna myself, so I was quite happy to live her adventure vicariously.

I found this book to be a very refreshing take on a somewhat cheesy but adorable teenage love story. I'm a big fan of YA novels, and this didn't disappoint! It's a great book, I got through it very quickly. It kept my attention, and left me smiling. Highly recommended! A good book to read during travels.
