Five Summers
by Una LaMarche
May 16, 2013
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.

Summer camp, friendship drama, and repairing the past? I didn't realize it before I came across this book, but I think that I've been in need of this type of story for a while now. I'm definitely going to be picking up this one.

What about the rest of you? Which book(s) are you waiting on?


  1. I've seen this one around a bit lately...I think it's on my TBR, but I need to go double-check. I'm in the mood for this sort of book, too.

  2. This was my pick a few weeks back. I think it sounds so cute! I can't wait to read it.

    1. I can't wait either! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  3. I have an ARC of this and I really hope it is as good as Traveling Pants! I loved that book. And the movie too :)

    1. I liked the Traveling Pants books too, and I have been wanting another good ya female friendship story for a while. It seems like so many books are about romance and girls competing with each other and I'd like to see more books exploring FRIENDSHIP, dangit!
