Review: Twenty By Summer by Sarah Ockler

Twenty Boy Summer
ISBN: 0316051594
Published: June 2009 
Publisher: Little Brown
Description from goodreads:
"Don't worry, Anna. I'll tell her, okay? Just let me think about the best way to do it."
"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 ZanzibarBay 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.


I was excited to read this becasue I wanted a cute summer read and this really delivered. At first it was so sad and then Anna starts liking this guy and it was cute.

I cried a LOT while reading this, I don't do well with people being sad, it ruins it for me almost.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as I would have if it wasn't so sad, it was like this cloud of sadness over the book the whole time, it was depressing and that's why it gets a 4/5.
