Book Review: The Last Summer (of You & Me) by Ann Brashares
I liked this book. It was hard for me to put down (a problem for me as of late). Ann Brashares wrote The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series which I thoroughly enjoyed even though they were written for teenagers. The Last Summer however was written for adults and it would have been a great book to read on the beach while drinking a margarita but alas I read it when the snow was 2 feet deep and the closest beach is light years away. It is a book of young love and tragedy, a story of friendship and betrayal. Very poignant and thought provoking. Her writing style is poetic and prose-like. It is unfortunate that it had to end.
