Product description

Review

*Matson has blended romance, humor, teen angst, boring summer jobs, and a truly tragic event into a wonderfully readable story, told in a manner that trusts teens' intelligence. Jenny Han's and Sarah Dessen's fans will gobble this up.--SLJ, starred review


*Matson writes subtly about complex family dynamics, grief, and the impending loss of a parent in a way that is both beautiful and true...Readers who love the work of Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han will feel intensely for this cast of vulnerable characters who demonstrate integrity, personality, and perseverance as they work to bridge the distances between them.
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

*This is a bittersweet, powerful tale of family devotion, the sustainability of true friendship, and the silent courage of loving someone enough to stay and watch them die.
---Booklist, starred review

[Second Chance Summer] is a sweet, well written coming-of-age book that pulls at the reader's heartstrings...This is a compelling story that reads fast and grips readers until the very end.
--VOYA

Warning: tissues recommended.--The Boston Globe

"The exploration of the father-daughter relationship is warm, sensitive, and heartbreaking, with Taylor realizing how much she counts on the man she's going to lose. Between the dreamy romance and the four-hankie family story, this is a satisfyingly emotional summer tale." --BCCB
