Overview

Can you imagine being fourteen and having to spend your entire summer in an army-green tent? And your only true companion is your diary. This is how Jenny Baxter visualizes her summer after her parents inform her that they will all be spending the summer at a campground in New York while her father finishes a construction job.
Jenny doesn't understand why her parents won't let her stay with granny in her hometown, Elk Mills, Missouri. She assumes it's because they don't trust her because of a trivial incident that happened in her past.
Jenny isn't expecting the adventures that Darien Lake Campground creates. She meets the guy of her dreams along with a diverse group of friends. This novel displays the youthful emotions of a teenaged girl experimenting with peer pressure, first love, and resentment toward her father.
After meeting the stunning and witty Tom Byrd, Jenny is determined to have him as a boyfriend, despite the fact that she is fourteen and he is seventeen. Without thinking, Jenny lies about her age.
Before long Jenny and Tom fall in love, in spite of the lies that surface. After dating Tom for a month, Jenny is certain she'll never love another. But the painful day comes when she has to return home. She can't imagine going back to Elk Mills and continuing as if the summer never happened. Jenny knows she'll love Tom forever-but can a long-distant relationship last?
The story doesn't teach a moral lesson, but rather suggests the actions and manners of normal teenagers, and how they cope with the disappointments in life. You'll share Jenny's laughter along with her tears as she struggles through adolescents.

    The reviews are deceiving!

    Don't get me wrong, this is a decent book but the plot was not original. There are pleanty of other books out there about girls moving and finding a guy somewhere else. Another thing is the writing was too simple and there were no vocab words in the story whatsoever. Makes me think the author was 14 herself! Another thing is that the story was simply too short. 95 pages!? I like my books to be longer. Not only that but their love felt superficial and unrealistic. In teen years 2 years is quite a bit of an age difference. And they fell in love too fast without even really getting to know eachother. The plot was too simple too. There could have been some twists, drama...anything. but there was nothing. I wasn't even that sad when they broke up for good. Their relationship seemed fake. For 99 cents this book was decent because it was still very entertaining. Worth your time? Ehh that's iffy. I suggest you look for a better and longer novel like this out there. (Sear solo) in the nook store. Similar story about girl moving and finding love but better written and much longer! I do regret not saving a dollar to buy a better written 1 dollar novel but this story still entertained me and i didn't see any grammatical errors that distracted me from the story and it was cheap. Get it if you're bored and looking for an easy and quick read. (Also..the main character acted much younger than her initial age of 14 in the story)

    Great! But.....

    Great book! Couldnt put it down. But the ending was horrible, i was crying because it didnt end good. I think the author could have made a couple of years later. It rewlly broke my heart cuz they had such a strong kove and then it just diminished. That is my take. It is a great book but if u want to have a terrible.ending then read it. But if u dont like those endings dont read it. Here is a book tht is amazing the summer i turned pretty. It is a series by jenny han plz read it its amazing!!!!

    I like the story, but 95 pages, well must say the end was horrib

    I like the story, but 95 pages, well must say the end was horrible, when we get a romance to read, we expect happy ending, the other way around we have in real life, very disappointed to see a young love die
