For fifteen-year-old Haven, life is changing too quickly. She's nearly six feet tall, her father is getting remarried, and her sister—the always perfect Ashley—is planning a wedding of her own. Haven wishes things could just go back to the way they were. Then an old boyfriend of Ashley's reenters the picture, and through him, Haven sees the past for what it really was, and comes to grips with the future.
I will be posting my review along with my answers for the questions below later this week, so be on the lookout!
Did you read That Summer?
- What was your overall view of That Summer?

- If someone came to you for advice about dealing with change, what would you tell them?
