Title: The Summer After You And Me Author: Jennifer Salvato Doktorski Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire Pages: 320
Publication Date: May 05 2015 Synopsis: “Sunbathing, surfing, eating funnel cake on the boardwalk—Lucy loves living on the Jersey Shore. For her, it’s not just the perfect summer escape, it is home. And as a local girl, she knows not to get attached to the tourists. They breeze in over Memorial Day weekend, crowding the shore and stealing moonlit kisses, only to pack up their beach umbrellas and empty promises on Labor Day. Lucy wants more from love than a fleeting romance, even if that means keeping her distance from her summertime neighbor and crush, Connor.
Then Superstorm Sandy tears apart her barrier island, briefly bringing together a local girl like herself and a vacationer like Connor. Except nothing is the same in the wake of the storm. And day after day, week after week, Lucy is left to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and broken home. Now with Memorial Day approaching and Connor returning, will it be a summer of fresh starts or second chances?”
****Actual Rating 3.5 Stars*****
I want to say thanks to Sourcebooks Fire and Netgalley for letting me read this This is another book that I requested because of the pretty cover. I should really stop doing this because it’s wild card. I honestly didn’t really know what the book was about going into it and I didn’t know if it would be any good. It was an okay book very cutesy romance book. It had the major cliche of a young adult books a love triangle. It wasn’t that great of a love triangle. Throughout this book you couldn’t help feel bad for the main character Lucy. I was really hoping as I read this book it would be like Jenny’s Han The Summer I Turned Pretty series but it isn’t. Which I guess it okay. I’m really glad that this book didn’t really have any books that I know of that I could compare it too. I wish it had more of an introduction because it was confusing and slow paced it did pick up eventually. Overall a great book to start out summer.
