Book Review: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

Hardcover, 468 pages. Published May 8th 2012 by Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing


Synopsis: Taylor Edwards’ family might not be the closest-knit—everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled—but for the most part, they get along just fine. Then Taylor’s dad gets devastating news, and her parents decide that the family will spend one last summer all together at their old lake house in the Pocono Mountains.

Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven’t actually gone anywhere. Her former best friend is still around, as is her first boyfriend…and he’s much cuter at seventeen than he was at twelve.

As the summer progresses and the Edwards become more of a family, they’re more aware than ever that they’re battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance—with family, with friends, and with love.

My Review

I purchased my own copy of this title.

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson blew me away. It is as sweet and addicting as all of her novels but strikes a deeper chord and really touches the heart. I gave this title a 4/5 stars and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new summer read that is not all just fluff and rainbows.
