The Summer of Lost wishes is a story about Piper, she moves to her mom's old hometown. Into a beach cottage, her mom had to have. Turns out her mom didn’t tell her everything about this house. It’s a little bit of a mystery, that I felt was interesting. I really wanted to love the story, it sounded really good and intriguing. Unfortunately, I didn’t really connect with Piper on an emotional level. That’s what I really look for in a story. It was good though and I think it would be great for the younger young adult crowd. It was written well. Just didn’t really grab and hold on to me all the way through. Overall, Three Boundless Stars

What can I say? The Summer of Lost Wishes was the perfect book to kick off my summer. It had everything I love in a YA novel from teen angst to a hot boy next door and some mystery as Piper and her new neighbor Rooks set off to discover what really happened to the five teens who died tragically in their small beach town fifty years ago. Jessa Gabrielle does a stunning job at weaving the perfect beach setting, with incredible summery descriptions that really let me experience the small town of Coral Sands. The sweet, budding romance between Piper and Rooks had me smiling at nearly every page. There aren’t enough smiley heart-eye emojis in the world to describe how adorable every moment between the two of them was. Their summer love story was really well done. I also loved how some letters from the past were speckled throughout the novel to give us a glimpse at the teens’ lives from 1965 before the tragedy occurred. It set up the mystery of the story perfectly. I highly recommend this story for those who like young adult contemporary novels, beach reads, beautiful settings, and an all around cute romance.
