    I found this book at the library, and since I loved Judy Blume as a child, I wanted to test one of the books she wrote for adults I never could have expected a story so involving and complex The characters come to life on the pages, and the storyline is brilliant in its everyday commonness Summer Sisters follows the lives of Caitlyn Somers and Victoria Leonard, two unlikely girls from different social backgrounds Caitlin invites Victoria to stay the summer with her and her father who lives i I found this book at the library, and since I loved Judy Blume as a child, I wanted to test one of the books she wrote for adults I never could have expected a story so involving and complex The characters come to life on the pages, and the storyline is brilliant in its everyday commonness Summer Sisters follows the lives of Caitlyn Somers and Victoria Leonard, two unlikely girls from different social backgrounds Caitlin ...

    I read this book every summer, mostly because it does such a great job of capturing the essence of the season I actually prefer to read it when it s still a little cold outside so I can be transported to warmer weather, but for the past few years it s been so hard to find time to get it in Anyway, if you define a favorite book as one you want to read again and again, this is definitely one of my favorites I guess I m not really surprised Are You There, God It s Me, Margaret had the same h I read this book every summer, mostly because it does such a great job of capturing the essence of the season I actually prefer to read it when it s still a little cold outside so I can be transported to warmer weather, but for the past few years it s been so hard to find time to get it in Anyway, if you define a favorite book as one you want to read again...

    This story has so many elements that should make it an easy success The senitmentality of childhood summers, first love, finding and defining family, a rags to riches tale, your first best friend, lost love, betrayal But it just failed so hard None of the characters were believable all were flat caricatures The Saintly Martyred Poor Girl who worships Spoiled Socialite Girl, then lives with New York Jew and Southern Belle The fathers are Emasculated Pushover and Hippy Mellow Younger guys This story has so many elements that should make it an easy success The senitmentality of childhood summers, first love, finding and defining family, a rags to riches tale, your first best friend, lost love, betrayal But it just failed so hard None of the characters were believable all were flat caricatures The Saintly Martyred Poor Girl who worships Spoiled Socialite Girl, then lives with New York Jew and Southern Belle The fathers are Emasculated Pushover and Hippy Mellow Younger guys are Hunky Morons or Good Guy Who You Don t Know Exists or Sex cra...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I like that Vix and Caitlin were born the same years as me, it was easy to relate to that I didn t come from a rich family nor a struggling blue collar family But I could understand the feeling of trying so hard but not quite fitting in And looking at the 2 of them and their families, you see that nurture versus nature struggle Vix, you didn t have the benefit of money becomes a responsible, caring adult Though he sister gets pregnant at 17 Then we see Caitlin, who has every advantage but I like that Vix and Caitlin were born the same years as me, it was easy to relate to that I didn t come from a rich family nor a struggling blue collar family But I could understand the feeling of trying so hard but not quite fitting in And looking at the 2 of them and their families, you see that nurture versus nature struggle Vix, you didn t have the benefit of money becomes a responsible, caring adul...

    One thing I really enjoy doing is rereading kids books I checked out Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and zoomed through it in about two hours I have reread many other classics and enjoyed them I think my next big kids read will be the infamous Harriet the Spy which I loved and totally identified with as a child One of the greatest regrets of my life in terms of small scale regrets, anyway is that I sold off my Sweet Valley High books Now, granted, SVH isn t all that classic , but I so One thing I really enjoy doing is rereading kids books I checked out Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and zoomed through it in about two hours I have reread many other classics and enjoyed them I think my next big kids read will be the infamous Harriet the Spy which I loved and totally identified with as a child One of the greatest regrets of my life in te...

    Not a book you read A book you devour Unsurprisingly, there are few reviews by men here But I think any male writing writing female characters in this case female friendships could benefit from reading Blume And, yes This is a great hot summer read, best read on a dock.
