Waiting on Wednesday (169)

 "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Five Summers by Una Lamarche

 

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 is one of the 2013 debuts that I am really looking forward to :)


Release Date: May 17, 2013.

  1. I'm so sad to read about friendships falling apart even if the summer setting is making me crave summer already (and we haven't even reached winter yet!)

  13. I saw this one a while back and I think I even have the book on my to-read list... The story seems interesting so I'd love to read some reviews before I decide if I'm going to read it or not. I hope you enjoy the book when it comes out though!
