Title 20 Boy Summer
Publisher Little, Brown and Compony
Publication date June 2009
My review : A fun and cute book that deals with first love, best friends, and death. It does deal with some mature stuff, but is not detailed on it. It was very well written and the characters seemed so real. I could feel their pain, excitement, and fears. The authors use of words painted the story like a movie in my mind or like I was right there watching this emotional and hard story unfolding before me. In other words it was beautiful. It had me close to tears multiple times. This book is amazing and I plan to reread it.
