Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With its enticing cover featuring scantily clad, sand-drenched teens on the beach, Next Summer by Hailey Abbott is the second in her Summer Boys series. Beth is happily involved with her best friend, George-or is she? He's off for the summer, and that flirtatious lifeguard keeps catching her eye. Ella, meanwhile, attempts to reform her wily ways, but finds some scrumptious beachcombers keep distracting her. And Kelsi attempts to shake off frat boy Tim. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
When two sisters and their cousin vacation with their families in Pebble Beach, Maine for the summer, they get more than they expected. Eighteen-year-old Keri discovers that her younger sister Ella had been involved with Keri's boyfriend of last summer, Peter. Peter keeps calling Ella again to hook up with her for another fun summer's adventure, but Ella's guilt keeps her from returning his calls. Their cousin Beth is deeply in love with George, whom she has known for several years. But when Adam, a sexy lifeguard, rescues her from deep waters, she is instantly attracted to this clone of George. Keri meets Tim, who seems to be like the other guys, yet different. He helps her realize all guys are not slime. Keri and Ella eventually become closer as they sort out their problems. Ella also meets Jeremy, who is not like all the other boys she has known. He does not even want her to flirt with him as she does with every guy she meets. In fact, Jeremy tends to shy away from anything intimate. But eventually, Ella realizes that she does not have to flirt or have sex in order for a guy to like her. Beth goes too far in her relationship with Adam and almost loses George. In the end, she decides George is the boy she truly loves. 2005, Scholastic, Ages 16 to 18.

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-This sequel to Summer Boys (Scholastic, 2004) stands on its own. The Tuttle girls are getting ready for another summer at the family's beach cottage. Beth, though excited about spending time with her cousins, is depressed over leaving her boyfriend, George. Sisters Ella and Kelsi have mixed feelings about the upcoming summer as well. Kelsi had a horrific breakup the previous year and wants a boy-free vacation so she can hang out with the girls and have fun. Ella, the party animal, is tired of all the hook ups. All she wants is a committed relationship with a nice guy. Unfortunately, this summer turns out to be filled with more drama than any of the teens could have realized: Beth is hanging out far too much with a George-look-alike lifeguard; Kelsi keeps running into frat boy Tim, who is totally not her type, and Ella has found the perfect boy, but can't seem to attract him-a first for her! The teens are believable characters and their experiences will have readers laughing and crying along with them. There are episodes of drinking, serious making out, and discussions about sexual encounters, but there are no graphic scenes. Written in an accessible style, this romance will attract both avid and reluctant readers.-Heather E. Miller, Homewood Public Library, AL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    when we meet Ella in the first book she is labeled as basically a slut I guess you would say nobody calls her this to her face it's just an accepted fact. She's always fawning over guys and she can't go a day without having one which of course causes problems for her. The sub character associated with Ella is the life guard Jeremy whom she meets through her cousin Beth. Jeremy is definitely not her type he's completely shy and he likes to get to know a girl before he does "things" if you know what I mean so it is fun to watch how thins between these two fan out.




    Next we have Ella's older sister Kelsi who is single and trying to not be such a bore which she is according to her sister. I like Kelsi though the way she is normally she's her own person very smart and she knows how to handle herself in certain situations but the only thing that sucks is that she is taken advantage of very easily because she's so nice and easy going. The character associated with her is Tim. They meet at the annual beginning of the summer bon fire but they don't exactly hit it off which makes their story interesting to read about as well.  Overall the book gets a 5 out of 5 stars because the crazy drama in the book had me turning pages non stop! I don't know what it was but I could not put the book down not even in class which was not good but ya know a girls got to get her reading in.

     Next Summer is still somewhat flawed. The Tuttle family, back in Pebble Beach a year later minus Jamie, settles in for another summer of deception. Beth is upset when George has to stay home and work for the summer, yet she recovers quickly when she meets Adam, the easy-on-the-eyes lifeguard. Elle is still filled with guilt about helping Peter to cheat on Kelsey last summer, so she decides to go after a 'good boy', but he seems uninterested. Kelsey, who saw Peter with some girl, is determined to find out who that girl was, not knowing that it was Elle. However, Kelsey is sidetracked by adorable Tim. Next Summer definitely picks up the pace. Thank goodness Jamie's charcter is not in this edition and when she is she sort puts a big boring damper on it. I don't think that any sequel lives up to the exciting standard of summer boys 1 but this one definitely competes. Kelsi's struggle to let people in is so relatable! These characters just grow up with me. Never expect anything because you truly never know what will happen next! Too bad. Better reviews next time. summer boys is an investment! Absolutely my favorite book/series of all time!

    GREAT BOOK

    Hi, im 14 I love going to the book store and looking for books and had looked at this series before but just passed over it. I saw my friend reading the third book in series (After Summer) and thought i'd give it a try. I read the first book (Summer Boys) and loved it. I was so excited to read this book. I loved this book just as much as the first one. I also could not put this book down and read the whole thing in one sitting.

    PS u might think i'm exaggerating when i put all 5 start for everything but i'm NOT!! This is a GREAT book.

    I think Abbott's book series are very AWESOME. If you are debating to buy this book, don't...Many students I recommended to, loved the book also. When I went to the library, I went to go find books that looked interesting. If you love romantic, drama books, then you would love it. I read a couple of pages and SUMMERies and automatically liked it! Thank you for reading it! <3

    Very enjoyable

    I have to say that I love the dynamics of the three Tuttle girls and the setting could not be more amazing. I love reading summer romances because they are all set on the coast and you have the sand and boys and so great to get lost in. I don't regret getting this at all, in fact I want to get the others in the series, Hailey Abbott is a great writer and the dialog and situations really feel realistic.

    *sigh*

    The whole thing in this book is everyone messes up and everyone deserved to be punished but I didn't feel like any of these Tuttle girls were punished. Sure, they cried and were punks to each other but I didn't feel that any of them were truly remorseful enough to get the easy make ups that they got.

    After I finished the book, I shook my head. I don't think I'll be finishing this series because well, I don't like these Tuttle girls. They're immature little girls that play with boys feelings and in the end, get away with everything. Not my kind of folks. I can't exactly say I hated this book but I didn't love it either. And yes, I know that they're teenagers but still, no my kind of folks. So I'm giving it a 3.
