Review quote

"Light and romantic." --The New York Times "Fits like a favorite pair of pants." --USA Today "A great summer read." --The Sacramento Bee "The characters seem like old friends, and the author's sure ear for dialogue and her empathy for her protagonists' complicated emotions creates a story as comfortable as an old pair of jeans. A big, complex, satisfying sequel." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred "Equally authentic and engaging." --Publishers Weekly "The Second Summer, while breezy and fun to read, deals seriously with love lost and found, death, and finding the courage to live honestly." --Amazon.com "[A] big-hearted, complex tale of living, learning, and caring." --School Library Journal "Brashares has done an outstanding job of showing the four teens growing up and giving readers a happy, ultimately hopeful book, easy to read and gentle in its important lessons." --Booklist "It takes a really good book to leave you laughing one moment and crying the next. This book did just that. It is even better than the first book." --VOYA "Although these teens deal with issues common to YA novels--identity, romance, parental conflict--Brashares' tale, with its lively characters, honest emotion, and wry wit, rises above the norm." --Children's Literature
