I finished this book during the Thanksgiving break, but I’m just now getting around to writing a review for it. Life has been busy! But I’m still behind in posts because I’ve actually read another book since this one. And I’m almost done with another one. I guess that will just be my life now. Ha!
Alex and Poppy became best friends during college, and since then they’ve taken annual summer trips to different locales. But two years ago that all stopped. Now Poppy manages to convince Alex to do another trip, and she feels like this is her last chance to make things right. This book is told non-linearly, as it jumps back and forth between the friends’ present trip and all of their trips since the beginning.
The buildup to the summer where everything changed was so great, and then the actual summer where everything was ruined just…wasn’t great. It seemed sort of anti-climactic to me. I also felt that the pacing could use some work, because the last third of the novel felt a little rushed to me.
Overall I really liked it, though. I always looked forward to being able to read it, so that’s the sign of a good book!
