Welcome to my stop on the When Summer Ends blog tour. Lets just start by saying that I absolutely loved this book so there will be a lot of gushing happening. But also information on the book. Because that is important.
Two teenagers discover how an unexpected turn of fate can bring new love to heal old wounds in Jessica Pennington’s stunning, romantic YA novel When Summer Ends.
Aiden Emerson is an all-star pitcher and the all-around golden boy of Riverton. Or at least he was, before he quit the team the last day of junior year without any explanation. How could he tell people he’s losing his vision at seventeen?
Straight-laced Olivia thought she had life all figured out. But when her dream internship falls apart, her estranged mother comes back into her life, and her long-time boyfriend ghosts her right before summer break, she’s starting to think fate has a weird sense of humor.
Each struggling to find a new direction, Aiden and Olivia decide to live summer by chance. Every fleeting adventure and stolen kiss is as fragile as a coin flip in this heartfelt journey to love and self-discovery from the author of Love Songs & Other Lies.
The couple in this book is adorable. I want to start out by saying that. Aiden and Olivia have chemistry and it shows. The way we get to see them before they even get together from their own points of view made the story that much more believable. The angst, romance, and plot are expertly put together to make a story any romance lover would enjoy.
The way the author uses the coin to decide what Olivia is going to do was fantastic. I feel like I should start doing that? It would make life so much more interesting. The way it brought her closer to Aiden when he pulled away was romantic.
Jessica Pennington is no stranger to the combination of love and drama. She’s a wedding planner, after all. A writer since the age of ten—when she sought publication for her poem about a tree—Jessica likes the challenge of finding the humor in a sad situation or highlighting the awkwardness in a romantic one. A serial entrepreneur with a B.A. in public relations, Jessica has a passion for grassroots marketing. She lives in a Michigan beach town, where she owns more YA novels than many teens and spends most of her time on a laptop, rather than on a beach.
