Partying with friends and scoring a flawless tan is about all Roxie has on her list of things to make her Hampton's summer perfect.Her parents, however, have other plans and Grandma Betty's farm is just one of them.
Just as her life is in shambles and the quaint town is suffocating her, she meets Chase.
Somewhere in the mix of bummer summer and small town doldrums, he becomes the boy she can't seem to avoid falling for. Just adding him to the picture, her stay starts to get better, even if she knows it has to end with the summer holidays.
That is until Betty drops a life-shattering bomb.
Roxie must make a choice that will change her life forever. What happens when a spoiled brat from New York learns the true meaning of love, loss, and forgiveness?
Can Chase and Roxie find a way to be together or is this just another summer romance?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Outside of the lead, Roxie, being a spoiled rotten brat, this book was good. It was hard for me to connect with someone so selfish and odd. She's all consumed with Chase but runs everytime he tries to speak with her? It just didn't strike a chord with me. The rest of the story is amazing though. I love the dynamic between Roxie and her grandmother and watching that relationship grow. I enjoyed seeing Roxie grow through out the book, again it just got old, all the running away. It's a great story for any young adult to read, and would highly reccomend it!
