This is the story of two Summers. In a split second, Summer Everett's life takes two parallel tracks. In one story she goes to France to spend the summer at her father’s vacation home. In the other, Summer spends her time in upstate New York taking a photography training course. Yes, the summers are different, but she is still just one Summer, but there these "histories" have several things in common: One. She falls in love. Two, she discovers that her mom has been keeping a secret from her and which she can no longer hide from.
BTSYA / Teen Reader (Age 15):
Although in the beginning, it seems weird due to the constant change of story, it shows the reader how one decision can lead to totally different paths but also the same outcome. Before boarding the plane to France Summer makes a last minute change that changes her summer completely, but the reader can also see what would have happened if she had not made that decision.
There’s nothing I did not like about the book. It had a lot of description as to nature and what Summer experienced both summers, and I liked that a lot. Read this entertainment. If you like reading romance or dramas, this is could be your book!
This has all the makings for a fun summer read: summer romance, self-discovery, and a happy ending.
This is a fun take on the "summer romance" theme. It has a bit of a mystery to it and may appeal to reluctant readers. [Consider this for a High Interest / Low Readability recommendation.]
Read this for fun. It is an interesting way of telling a story, and that may invite some conversation.

Borrow. Fun to read and recommend to friends, but not a book you'd keep forever.
