Summary of the Book:
Four girls. One unforgettable July.
Britta is the bubbly drama queen. She needs to get away—and a peaceful cabin in the woods sounds like the perfect escape.
Meredith is the overachiever. She’s spent her entire life preparing for college, but at what cost? Now she’s wondering if that’s all there is.
Kate is the reluctant socialite. She’s searching for a reason to begin again after fleeing her small Georgia town—and a shameful family secret.
Spider is the quiet intellectual. She’s struggling with pain that has isolated her from her peers for much of her life.
When these four very different young women stay together for a month in the mountains, they discover that sometimes getting away from it all can only bring you back to who you really are.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is a coming of age story that revolves around how different each of them are and how their friendship. They each has their own reasons for wanted to escape to the cabin. It is going to be a summer to remember as they each come into their own and what bonds the closer as friends. The story gives a chance to look into the lives of each of the four girl and understand what makes them who they are. It is a good story and makes my heart feel good.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
