The Summer of Us Reviews
Enjoyed this travelogue, YA romance friendship story a lot,
Outside the window, the gray and brown buildings of London started disappearing behind them. Like a sped-up movie reel. Like the world on fast-forward.
I need someone to explain to me why I feel so happy about this ending even though I knew exactly what was going to happen.
I flew through this book and loved the fact that the story revolves around a group of friends. Each of them had very different personalities, different problems, and each character added more clarity to the story. The book s ...more
First full review of the year, how exciting! I received an early copy of this book and let me tell you it was amazing.

Then you’re on the journey itself, and you see their paths unravel in front of you like you’re watching roads/trees/ towns pass by in the window. And you can’t do anything about the way the train just passes them by, so all you can really do is sit back a ...more
You know when you're a kid, there's this transition you need to make from being dependent on your parents to being dependent on yourself. In The Summer of Us, Cecilia Vinesse explores this transitional period through five teens traveling through Europe together.
Ok, when I was a kid I did get a chance to travel with some fellow youngsters through a different part of the world. I was only 15 when it happened and I feel like it dramatically changed the person I was into the person I am today. I fee ...more
