hey guys! Today is wednesday so that means another book review. The book I’m going to share with you is Forever Summer by Alyson Noel. It has two books in one and I will share a little bit about both below.
Laguna Cove: I flew through this one real quick. It’s basically about a girl named Anne, whose parents got a divorce and now she’s going to live with her dad for a while in California. She arrives and doesn’t know what to do. She ends up meeting a few girls and guys at her new school, Lola, Ellie, Jade, Chris…there may be a few others. They are all into surfing when Anne is used to diving. Throughout her time, she decides to learn to surf and Chris teaches her. She starts to feel feelings for Chris but then she feels like Ellie doesn’t agree with it. In the end, it all works out.
Personally, it was an okay book. I feel like it’s for teens not so much young adults but I enjoyed it. The one thing that I didn’t like was the chapters..every other page was the start of a new chapter..kind of annoying.
Cruel Summer: This was also a quick read. It’s centered around a girl named Colby who’s parents also are going through a divorce but they send her away to her Aunt Tally’s on a small island for the summer. She hates living there because it’s so basic, white everything. She ends up finding a place to hang out everyday and starts a blog to stay in touch with friends back home. She also ends up meeting a boy and finds out that everyone on the island is basically family and finds out all secrets. In the end, she learns so much about herself and doesn’t want to leave the island.
It’s hard to describe the book without giving too many details because there wasn’t much to each book. They both tend to go on and on.
Overall, both books were good quick reads. I’m not sure if I would read them again being that they were slightly boring.
Let me know your opinion if you have read it!
