Twenty Boy Summer- Sarah Ockler
My rating: 5/5
"Don't worry, Anna. I'll tell her, okay? Just let me think about the best way to do it."
"Promise me? Promise you won't say anything?"
"Don't worry." I laughed. "It's our secret, right?"
According to her best friend Frankie, twenty days in ZanzibarBay is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy ever day, there's a pretty good chance Anna will find her first summer romance. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there's something she hasn't told Frankie---she's already had that kind of romance, and it was with Frankie's older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago.
Perfect! This was such a perfect summer read for me. I actually read this while on my little one week vacation to Florida and this couldn't have been more perfect timing to read this book.
The mood of this book is all over the charts for me. It seems that it is Happy then sad then melancholy then blissful then aggravating then hopeful and etc. I loved how Everything almost took place on the beach or in beachy surrounding. It made me want to actually get up and drive to the beach.
I loved most of the characters in the book. Anna and Frankie were the perfect picture of best friends with Anna being more reserved and Frankie being more loud and "look at me"
Overall, the whole book was very well written and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a summer read or just a good book.
