The Last Summer (of you and me) by Ann Brashares

Back Cover: Riley and Alice, two sisters now in their twenties, and as fiercely different as they are loyal, have spent every summer at their parents' modest beach house. And every summer growing up, there was also Paul, a close friend to both girls. Now, after three years away from the island, he's come back. But his returns marks a season of change, of unspoken attractions, tragedy, and deep secrets that will launch three friends into an unfamiliar adult world, from which their summer haven can no longer protect them. This was a pretty good book, but not amazing. It's kinda confusing at first, one of those books where the story is kinda progressing but there's still some stuff going on with the past so I'm not sure what's right now or not. But it was def way different than Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, which is good to get variety. I did like it though and it was sad when Riley died, but for some reason I didn't feel as sad other times in books when someone died. But it was something kinda familiar that could have been in another book, but I liked this one because it seemed seasonal. That these girls only saw Paul in the summer which is only 3 months out of 12 in the the year so it's not like 9 out of 12 they saw him not at the beach house. Anyways, it was good and I enjoyed the story.
