Overview

A Girl Named Summer by Julie Garwood

Julie Garwood's tales always sparkle with the magic that comes from falling in love. Now her talent shines brighter than ever in an unforgettable tale about young love meant especially for younger readers.

Summer never meant to lie. She just wanted to keep the most perfect guy she ever met interested in her. She had been surprised when David began hanging out with her every day...and dizzy with happiness when he kissed her. David seemed to like her unconventional Irish family, even her eccentric Grandpa. Everything was going great -- until Ann entered the picture. She collected boys like trophies. How could Summer compete with someone like that?

Before she knew it, Summer was boasting to David about her passion for long-distance running. She never dreamed he'd enter them in a six-mile race. Summer dreaded the moment when he would discover the truth: she couldn't run six blocks. And the flirtatious Ann was already working on David. Then Summer's Grandpa came up with a plan that was just crazy enough to save the day....

This book absolutely blew me away. Its so easy for teens to relate to. Summer is such a realistic, down to earth person, and that was just the beginning. I loved the way she went to family and friends to fix the problem she knew she started. David was amazing. He seemed like a classic guy and definetly made this book what it is. I reccomend this to any teen, anywhere, at any time.

I loved this book so much I read it in 2 days!( because I stopped reading for little bits at a time) I really want Julie Garwood to write another story about Summer and David. If she did it would be the first book I would read of the Summer or winter or whatever. I am so glad that I actually got to read this book. If I hadn't I would have missed out on the best book of my life! I am so thankful that Julie Garwood wrote this book! :)

Being an adult, this was a sweet story, but I'm just not sure if this would hold a tween's attention. It has a great moral that is taught about lying and consequences as well as jumping to conclusions and self-image, but I hope it will conquer and help young adults.

¿A Girl Named Summer¿ Book Review Did you know that every time you read a book or an article your vocabulary increases by 4 percent. Well, in my spare time I have been reading a book called, ¿A Girl Named Summer¿. I enjoyed reading it very much. Overall, I would say that the book was adventurous, thrilling, amusing, and just plain out entertaining. The content of the book was a job well done by the author. The book was obviously written to teach young teenagers about some life lessons to help them when they are in uncomfortable situations. I feel that the author wrote this story to inform young readers that it is okay to be yourself around people you really like. For example, if you want someone to like you and accept you in their life, you shouldn¿t act like someone that you¿re not in front of them. Then that person will assume that you are just like them. Which can¿t be very good in the future when it turns out that this person is absolutely obsessed with you! Now, I would like to talk about the style of the book. This book was arranged in its own unique way. I feel that the book was perfect by the scenery and the person¿s content in the story. For example, each character in the story was imagined well by the author. Each character seems life-like to me and does not seem to be made up by the writer or fake from the lack of not actually knowing the person. The scenery in the story is described very well. I pictured everything that was spoken of in the story. It is described as a real town. The protagonist¿s house has descriptive features about it that I feel you can only see in real life. The language of the book was awesome! You seem like you are really there in the book. It is set in present time. The language is used with slang in the text. Instead of using philosophical speech or old English patterns the author used recent language terms to write the story. The tone of the story is supposed to be a romantic novel. It sticks with the romanticism throughout the entire book. I felt impacted in certain parts in the story, which had to do with passionate feelings between two people. Overall, I loved the book I read called, ¿A Girl Named Summer¿. It was, perhaps, the best book I have ever read in my entire lifetime. The story was great to me because of many ways that the book was written by the author. In summary, I feel this way because of the content in the book. The style that the book was written, the language that supported the story, and the tone that the author set for me.
