A book that is worth reading is one where you can really understand and relate to the characters. I enjoyed this book a lot because I was able to do that.

" Gelsey rolled her eyes, a language she'd become fluent in this year. She could express a wide variety of emotion with every eye roll, maybe because she practiced constantly."(23) This is a quote from the book that many young adult readers can relate to.

Second Chance Summer

When her dad receives terrible news, the family decides to spend their last summer together at their old beach house that Taylor has not visited in five years. When they get there, Taylor is forced to face people she thought she left behind, like her former best friend, Lucy.
