Book Review :: Summer Sisters

inally, finished my JUNE book reading Summer Sisters by Judy Blume. I thought I was going to dread another girly friendship book but as the other I did get to know the characters and started to wish I was part of that family on the beach growing up. It did bring back plenty of memories of the days when my family would take summer vacations to Rhode Island and all the local boys just seemed amazing.

This is definitely a QUICK read I finished on my commute to city last week. So all the LIRR riders pick up a book from the past and enjoy. I guess you can understand it wasn't so much a page turner to figure out the plot but more of yeah I read this before type of book. Just like we watch our TV programs love and pain seem to keep us glued to the story.

Product Description (from Amazon)

In the summer of 1977, Victoria Leonard’s world changes forever when Caitlin Somers chooses her as a friend. Dazzling, reckless Caitlin welcomes Vix into the heart of her sprawling, eccentric family, opening doors to a world of unimaginable privilege, sweeping her away to vacations on Martha’s Vineyard, an enchanting place where the two friends become “summer sisters.”

Now, years later, Vix is working in New York City. Caitlin is getting married on the Vineyard. And the early magic of their long, complicated friendship has faded. But Caitlin begs Vix to come to her wedding, to be her maid of honor. And Vix knows that she will go—because Vix wants to understand what happened during that last shattering summer. And, after all these years, she needs to know why her best friend—her summer sister—still has the power to break her heart.

Children Books :: Library Picks

This week our trip to the library saved us from a terrible thunder storm. It is great for our plants and gardens but not so great for our play time at the park. Usually, it is a trip to the library followed by a stop at the corner store for an ice pop and then a walk to our favorite park on Madison Ave.

Our little library has been part of little man's life since he was able to sit in a circle and listen to songs, now he is joining book clubs and picking his own children's books.

This weeks children's book selection has no particular theme but I can see the interest from summer school, under the sea lesson plan, is still around with his selection of Puffer Fish. Next we take a trip to the zoo with Mr. Carle famous Chameleon. And finally an adventure with a very smart mouse and a Gruffalo

I am sure some of us have read these children's books in the past. We are enjoying playing Puffer face, thinking about some crafts to make with our chameleon and maybe a Gruffalo recipe for trail mix. Share with me your special memories and reviews of the books.
