Rating: – Poor
Book Summary: Ever since Sarah was born, she’s lived in the shadow of her beautiful older sister, Scarlett. But this summer on Cape Cod, she’s determined to finally grow up. Then she meets gorgeous college boy Andrew. He sees her as the girl she wants to be. A girl who’s older than she is. A girl like Scarlett.
Before she knows what’s happened, one little lie has transformed into something real. And by the end of August, she might have to choose between falling in love, and finding herself.
Fans of Jenny Han and Stephanie Perkins are destined to fall for this story about how life and love are impossible to predict.
Book Review Overview:
- The protagonist seems really immature to me
- Not a fan of the romance; it’s all based on lies!
- A great audiobook listen; Luci Christian is a great narrator
Right before Sarah’s family leaves for their annual trip to Cape Cod, her boyfriend and childhood best friend breaks up with her. He says that Sarah spends too much time observing the world like a scientist and not enough time just living. Determined to prove him wrong, Sarah begins an experiment to be more like her older sister, Scarlett. Scarlett is flirty, fun, popular, and 18 years old—two years older than Sarah. When Sarah meets 19-year-old Andrew, she finds herself caught in a lie about her age and her school plans for the fall. The more time she spends with Andrew, the more she falls in love and the harder it becomes to come clean about the truth.
