Five Summers
By Una LaMarche
Release Date: May 16, 2013
Summary: Four best friends, five summers of camp memories
 
The summer we were nine: Emma was branded “Skylar’s 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 : Skylar’s 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 Maddie’s secret. Skylar did something unthinkable . . . and whether we knew it then or not, five summers of friendship began to fall apart. 

Three years after the fateful last night of camp, the four of us are coming back to camp for reunion weekend—and for a second chance. Bittersweet, funny, and achingly honest, Five Summers is a story of friendship, love, and growing up that is perfect for fans of Anne Brashares and Judy Blume's Summer Sisters.




This one reminds me so much of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. With secrets and second chances for best friends, this one sounds like it's going to be a super sweet read. I love the idea that five summers pass with monument moments and they're all meeting up three years later. Can't wait to see what's going to unfold at that reunion!

  1. This sounds like a really great summer read! I liked the Traveling Pants series (although I bawled my eyes out at the last one), and books with intricate friendships always catch my eye. Nice pick! : )
