This was a different novel by Ann Brashares. It took a while to get really into but after I got into the story I couldn't put it down and it brought tears to my eyes. Great story. ( )

This book had a slow beginning, predictable plot and fairly superficial characters. However, overall it was an okay read but unremarkable. ( )

This was an amazing journey. I cherrish the relationship between the characters. ( )

I just re-read this book again over the last couple of days and it's still a real favourite. It really captures (for me) the wonder and excitement and romance of your first love. A very easy and quick read. It's meant to be an adult read but I think it's YA. ( )

Riley and Alice are sisters, and friends with Paul, who they know from their beach house where they all grew up over the summers. They are now all in their early 20s when Paul and Alice discover their attraction to each other, but feel guilty "sneaking" behind Riley's back.

It was o.k. It was pretty slow moving and the book alternated between all three characters' points of view. I was listening to the audio, so if my mind drifted, I would often lose track of who was narrating at any particular point in time. Unfortunately, I inadvertently saw a spoiler, so that may have affected my reaction to the book, as well. I did like the narrator, but overall, it was kind of slow for me. ( )

No one ever gets over the first unfairness; no one except Peter. He often met it, but he always forgot it. I suppose that was the real difference between him and all the rest. - J.M. Barrie
