I thought this was a good story. Illustrations were okay. It was a story of a girl who goes to the cabin with her parents for the summer. I absolutely loved her friend Windy (best character in the novel hands down). The parents fight constantly which depresses the girl and she obsesses over a guy working at a store. Ending was interesting (neither good nor bad). All in all an okay read. ( )

This one won a Caldecott as well as a Prinz award. Does touch on some "teen topics"

This one wasn’t ground breaking. Was expecting a bit more so wasn’t a big fan. Felt like a lot of issues were trying to be jammed in one story. 3🌟 ( )

Book description
Jeden Sommer verbringt Rose mit ihren Eltern die Ferien im selben Haus am See. Dort trifft sie ihre Sommerfreundin Windy. Sie ist für Rose die kleine Schwester, die sie nie hatte. Doch in diesem Sommer ist alles anders. Roses Eltern hören nicht auf, sich zu streiten, und auch zwischen Rose und Windy hat sich etwas verändert. Rose kann den kindlichen Spielen von früher nicht mehr viel abgewinnen, vielmehr beobachtet sie fasziniert und verstört zugleich die älteren Teenager, die schon erste sexuelle Erfahrungen machen.

Eine flirrend leichte Sommergeschichte über die Zeit zwischen der Kindheit und dem Erwachsenwerden – voller Geheimnisse, Sorgen und Erwartungen. (Verlagstext)
