Oh Judy Blume how you fulfilled my love of reading in my youth. I remember hiding Forever from my parents afraid my mom would want to read it and get mad at me for reading it.
Summer Sisters is about Vix and Caitlin, friends from elementary school, and their summer trips to The Island to visit Caitlin's dad and step-mother. The friendship that these girls had was unusual, but at the same time long lasting despite their problems.
Vix is the shy girl who has had a hard family life. She is smart and likes to read. Caitlin's family take her in and help her to recognize her potential and help her to go to college and be the success that she wants to be.
Caitlin is the pretty, popular, rich, selfish, and carefree girl. She wants what she wants and will get it no matter what. She travels the world with no regards to her future.
I really enjoyed this book, but I am a sucker for a book about friendships. There were some things that made me blush, but I liked the characters, even the ones that I Loved to hate.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an easy read for the beach or just for a lazy day.
