I have had this book for a while, but I really love it and read it quite often. I’m pretty sure I have all of the author’s books as well, that’s how much I love her work. Before I had bought her books and read them, everyone talked about them and how good they were, so I thought, ‘Well I better see what everyone is talking about’. And I did and I loved it. Like straightaway. Matson’s work is, to me, just amazing and wonderful to read. Her stories make you feel like you are part of it, as if you were though. I hope you find my review helpful and purchase the book if you like the sound of it.



‘ Taylor Edwards has a tendency to run away when things get tough. But when her father receives unexpected, terrible news, Taylor knows this is one situation she can’t outrun.

To have one last summer together, Taylor’s parents decide to take the family back to their old lake house in the Poconos. Even though Taylor was twelve the last time she went to Lake Phoenix, the people she left behind are still there – like her former best friend Lucy, who’s still hurting from a long-ago betrayal, and her first crush Henry, who’s gotten five years cuter.

With nights full of fireflies and fireworks, the summer holds the possibility of forgiveness, and maybe even love. Taylor wants to hold on to the moment instead of walking away, but she knows the end of summer is getting closer – and that time is running out to make the most of her second chance. ‘

So some of you may be thinking, what second chance? With her former best friend, or with her first crush? Sure they are part of it, but there is something more to the second chance she has been given. I would love to tell you, but unfortunately I don’t like spoilers so I cant. If you want to know I guess you will have to read it and find out.


I really love this story, I’m not sure why as its not very relatable to me, but I still love it. I love the story line and all the plot-twists that come along in the book. All the unexpected things. That’s what some of my favourite things in a book are. Unexpected things, which you don’t know are coming.


I also really love the part where she sacrifices part of her life to spend more time with her family, for an important reason. Having what happened to her happen to me, I don’t what I would do, but she just decided to make the best of it. I know you probably don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, but if you want to know, you should buy the book so you know what I mean (my attempt to get you to purchase this book). And those of you who have read it, no spoilers ;).


I hope you like this review and tell me how I can improve it if you have any ideas.
