Twenty Boy Summer By Sarah Ockler

"Don't worry, Anna. I'll tell her, okay? Just let me think about the best way to do it.""Okay.""Promise me? Promise you won't say anything?""Don't worry." I laughed. "It's our secret, right?"According to her best friend Frankie, twenty days in Zanzibar Bay is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy ever day, there's a pretty good chance Anna will find her first summer romance. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there's something she hasn't told Frankie---she's already had that kind of romance, and it was with Frankie's older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago.Beautifully written and emotionally honest, this is a debut novel that explores what it truly means to love someone and what it means to grieve, and ultimately, how to make the most of every single moment this world has to offer.

My Thoughts:

(More Random Thoughts) This was a different one. It was very good. I knew I was going to love it! I thought it was going to be way different. But I was wrong... Anyways, I thought it was going to be all about these girls on a hunt for twenty boys. Well, it was kinda like that but different. Haha I make NO sense. There was sadness, happiness and romance and it all tied together perfectly. I liked how there was flashbacks about Anna and Matt, they were very interesting! I feel bad for Anna for having to keep such a big secret from her best friend and to watch how much Frankie has changed since Matt died. Anna tries SO hard to protect Frankie. No one knows how much Matt ment to Anna, they don't know how hard it was for her. It's sad how no one really cared for Anna's feelings, no one really asked her how she was doing. Hopefully you guys read this book and please tell me your opinion!
So, I'm giving this book an...
