Overview


The weather may be cooler, but things are hotter than ever in this yummy third installment of the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling SUMMER BOYS series!

As the leaves turn golden, everyone's favorite beach girls are dealing with romantic dramas in their respective hometowns. Tomboy Beth is worried that her true love, George, is changing -- and not for the best. Meanwhile, naughty Ella meets a boy at school who is (gasp!) an even bigger flirt than she is. College girl Kelsi hates how her boyfriend treats her differently around his frat posse. And shy dreamer Jamie falls hard for a pompous trust fund boy at her posh boarding school. Everything comes to a head at an eventful Thanksgiving, and the four cousins come away wiser about life and love.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanna Sciarrotta
After yet another summer, boy-crazy cousins Beth, Ella, and Kelsi all seem to have settled down. Beth has found true love in long time boyfriend George, even after the summer drama that almost ended their relationship in book two of this series. Ella, who prides herself in her appearance and flirtatious personality, has finally let a summer fling carry over to the school year and, though perfect boyfriend Jeremy lives miles away, Ella is sure the long-distance relationship can be worked out. Ella's self-conscious older sister, Kelsi, finds that her inexperience may play a big role in whether or not her boyfriend Tim can handle her no-sex policy after he lets his whole fraternity think they are sleeping together. The new school year turns out to be almost as dramatic as the steamy summer they all left behind as these girls try to hold on to their summer loves or, in Ella's case, decide if the new boy is hotter then the one she already has. This novel, like the other "Summer Boys Novels" in this best selling series, is written in alternating viewpoints that the reader has to be aware of, or they might end up very confused. Also a bit confusing is the fourth cousin Jamie, who makes a few cameos in online discussions but does not get her own chapters. The reader is left unsure of her role in the novel. Overall this novel quenches a teenager's thirst for drama, boys, and teenage scandal, but has no place in the classroom.

I just finished last summer it was great, this book was before it, i really liked this book yeahh sure it was slower because they wernt in pebble beach. but it was still really great, i think Hailey Abbott is a really great author, and that her writing cannot be compared to anyone else's, George really surprised me in this nocel, because he bacame very rude and ignorant, and self centered, but wait till' the next book, i do no regret buying this book nor the last two, if you dont read all of them you will and i meanWILL be missing out an u WILL be lost too. i love Hailey Abbott she is amazing no more put-downs!!!

I say you buy the book. I mean you can't just not buy a book because the ending was not happy. The last 2books were sad but ended good, so i like how she makes this one depressing. People change and i like how she shows that and its not like happy endings happen all the time in the real world. I say worth the $. (:

This one was different from the others, and i did not like the split settings where the cousins are seperated, i think they are better together.
