At first, I thought this might be a "creepy summer camp" novel and I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be a light, fun, and heartwarming novel. I received a free paperback copy of this book, purchased a digital copy of the book, and opted to share my review. Copeland has this amazing knack for creating relevant and engaging young adult characters, making it easy to love Nina and all of the campers she built relationships with. I liked Nina immediately because I can relate to how difficult it is to feel overwhelmed when I don't have control over events or people, especially when those events or people have an adverse effect on my life. I think Copeland expressed Nina's feelings well and I didn't think Nina was whiny or being dramatic. The other characters in the book are truly just as amazing as Nina. There are a couple of characters who could be considered as "antagonists," and it's pretty clear who these people are from the beginning. I was warned about a possible trigger because of an attempted assault in the plot; however, it wasn't an issue for me since the perpetrator wasn't able to go through with it. I enjoyed the premise and I loved that the supernatural/paranormal aspect of the novel was ESP. Drops of Sunshine was a nice break from the norm and I think readers who are looking for a light and interesting read will enjoy it.

As most people know I am not a fan of YA or first person point of view (thank Twilight for that one) but I can say that I enjoyed this short and easy to read story. Light and fun, this light paranormal YA follows the summer adventures of 16 year old Nina. To be honest for the first few pages I did not like Nina. To me, she was annoying and whinny, definitely someone who would get on my nerves at fight sight. However, this is why you do not judge a book by its cover. While at first Nina, to me, felt like one of those unnecessarily mean and nasty teens, the type I didn't get along with when I was actually in high school, the more I read her story the more she grew on me and I understood her feelings and the need to be away from everyone. A lot happens in this short story to make Nina not only let loose a little and come out of er shell but also forced her to grow up and face her fears. The brief backdrop of her relationship with her mother and father was enough to make her a round character and make her believable. The supporting characters were also well crafted and represented a few of the different personalities you meet when you a dropped into an already formed group. From Britney, the sex crazed teen, to Leo, the one everyone loves, to Jacob, the serious and responsible one, and the other camp counselors and the gifted campers, helped add a dynamic to the story that pushed Nina out her comfort zone and forced her to interact with the world around her. Also there was a light romance that developed between a few characters and Nina that by the end of her little tale had me wishing for a second part to see what happens and how she continues to grow. For the supporting characters I liked them for the roles they played. However, I always have my favorite right off the back. From the moment Jacob was introduced into the story I was drawn to his character. Serious, mysterious, and a little broody, he captured my attention from the beginning. Watching him interact with Nina was a delightful joy. Overall, I enjoyed this light and fun read. It was easy to read with very likable and believable characters that stayed in view long enough to spark your curiosity and forward the story but not take away from the main character.
