Reasons for Reading: It’s Sarah Dessen’s latest book – need I saw more? It’s even set in the beach town of Colby.

Summary: In the last summer before college, Colby native Emaline has her future set for her. She has Luke, the perfect high school sweetheart, a full-ride at a state school, a loving if not dysfunctional family, and a ticket out of Colby. Emaline thinks she’ll be able to kick back and relax before driving off to college. Soon, those plans change when her mostly absentee biological father and half-brother come in for the summer. Also, a cultured, sophisticated college guy named Theo muddles things on the Luke front. Now, Emaline faces the pulls of familiar Colby and the draw of something new. She wants it all but she must decide what she wants most.

One Thing I Learned from reading this book: I think I want to try a shrimp burger!

What I Liked: Emaline’s best friends, Morris and Daisy, were very interesting. Their appearance in the story was a very pleasant surprise. As always, characters from other Dessen books resurface – Clyde, Auden, Heidi, Maggie, and Colie Sparks!

What I Disliked: There was too much going on in this book. I think Morris and Daisy could’ve had their own book (hint, hint Ms. Dessen!)
