Blog 204: This One Summer

Synopsis of the book from Goodreads
Every summer, Rose goes with her mom and dad to a lake house in Awago Beach. It's their getaway, their refuge. Rosie's friend Windy is always there, too, like the little sister she never had. But this summer is different. Rose's mom and dad won't stop fighting, and when Rose and Windy seek a distraction from the drama, they find themselves with a whole new set of problems. It's a summer of secrets and sorrow and growing up, and it's a good thing Rose and Windy have each other.

In This One Summer two stellar creators redefine the teen graphic novel. Cousins Mariko and Jillian Tamaki, the team behind Skim, have collaborated on this gorgeous, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful story about a girl on the cusp of her teen age — a story of renewal and revelation.

My Review:
Cover: The cover was nice, but I would say it is also misleading a little bit.

Things that I liked: I figured it would follow the two girls that were on the cover, which it did. It was nice to see these girls and them going on their summer adventures. I like that it touched on different subjects of the girls throughout the summer vacations. 

Things that I didn't like: It seemed like they were being introduced to topics that they were a little young for. I couldn't really tell what age range these girls were actually supposed to be.

Overall: I have rated this book 4 out of 5 stars.
