I thought the characters in the story were enjoyable to follow, and felt engrossed into their lives. The love story and friendship in the story is sweet and caring that will leave you with a smile on your face. The family is loyal, strong and heartbreakingly wonderful that will leave you with a tear in your eye.
Overall I would recommend Second Chance Summer as a great summer read. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and I look forward to reading more of Matson's work. I've heard many great things about her book, Amy and Roger's Epic Detour, which I have on my shelf and I cannot wait to read! I hope that I enjoy that one as much as I enjoyed Second Chance Summer. I hope you guys enjoy this one, too!
