Description of the Book:

“Don’t worry, Anna. I’ll tell her, okay? Just let me think about the best way to do it.”
“Promise me? Promise you won’t say anything?”
“Don’t worry.” I laughed. “It’s our secret, right?”

According to Anna’s best friend, Frankie, twenty days in Zanzibar Bay is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy every day, there’s a pretty good chance Anna will find her first summer romance. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there’s something she hasn’t told Frankie–she’s already had her romance, and it was with Frankie’s older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago.

TWENTY BOY SUMMER explores what it truly means to love someone, what it means to grieve, and ultimately, how to make the most of every beautiful moment life has to offer

Pre-Read:It sounds like a good story

While Reading: 

  • I hate when a book makes me cry
  • I hope Anna gets a second chance at love
  • Ahh again with the tears
  • OK Frankie is just hateful
  • I can’t believe how petty they are being

Overall Thoughts:

This is a beautiful story about lose and moving forward. I cried, laughed. and get pissed off at times. Anna loved a boy and lost him the worse way possible. Then has all this pain she has kept secrets even though it only hurts her that much more. You see her protecting her best friend the only way she thinks she ca but in the end it pulls at an old band-aid that was starting to come off. All it takes to start the healing process is a boy and a journal with all the secrets of the past. I enjoyed the book a lot because it reminded me that your never to young for love. Also that losing someone close to you no matter what anyone says. This is truly a beautiful story that is worth reading. I think everyone should read it.

Rating:5 out of 5

Happy Reading!

Always Jess.
