A moment can change everything...

Charlotte Gates is tired of being Charlie Rae. She loves the lake she was raised on, their rental cabins, and spending her nights under the stars...but inside she yearns for more.

After his freshman year, Nathaniel Chase's family spends their first summer at The Village. From the beginning Charlotte intrigues him. She's the girl who always says what's on her mind, wins at night games, and gets lost in the sky, each time she looks through her telescope.

Over the course of four summers together, Charlotte and Nathaniel become best friends, share firsts, mend broken hearts, protect each other's secrets, overcome tragedies...fall in love. And say goodbye...

Charlotte wants out of The Village. Nate wants her to have her stars. And they dream of being able to do it all together. But life isn't as easy as their summers.

Each summer is told in alternating points of view between Charlotte and Nate. Journey with the pair, and their friends, as they share their story about growing up, discovering who they are, making tough choices, and falling in love again and again.

About the Author

Writing has always been Nyrae Dawn�s passion. There have been times in her life where she wasn�t able to chase that dream the way she desired, but she always found her way back to telling stories.

One of her loves has always been writing about teens. There�s something so fresh and fun about the age that she loves exploring. Her husband says it�s because she doesn�t want to grow up. She doesn�t think that�s such a bad thing and luckily for her, he doesn�t either.

Nyrae gravitates toward character-driven stories. She loves going on emotional journeys with characters whether it be reading or writing. And yes, she�s a total romantic at heart and proud.

Nyrae resides in sunny Southern California with her husband (who still makes her swoon) and her two awesome kids.

When she�s not with her family, you can be pretty sure you�ll find her with a book in her hand or her laptop and an open document in front of her.

Kind of repetitive. Sweet coming of age story.

Fast-paced, sweetly romantic and fabulous! Makes for a great summer read! What I Loved: Anyone whose read Nyrae's other YA books knows that she *gets* the teenage voice, especially the boys, and Four Summers is no exception. The alternating POV's add insight and depth into the character's thoughts as we watch the love story play out over the course of four summers. *clutches heartstrings* There are happy times, sad times and whole lot of toe-curling swoonilicious times but it isn't overly dramatic. It's realistic and mature in the sense that Charlie and Nate grow-up over the years and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them do so! (I'm fairly certain you will too.) What Left Me Wanting More: I didn't want it to end! Final Verdict: Fast-paced, sweetly romantic and fabulous! Makes for a great summer read!
