Review: The Summer List by Amy Mason Doan

This book is very much about family and women and friendship and how relationships, no matter how tight the bond, can stray. The two main characters, Laura and Casey, are inseparable from the moment they meet until the summer after highschool. After that, it takes a mysterious reunion and a scavenger hunt to bring them back together and, in the process, truths about the past are revealed. I honestly could not put this book down and think it’s the perfect beach or travel read. I’m very impressed with this debut novel and look forward to the author’s subsequent books.

Reasons I liked this book:

Strong relationships that prove family isn’t always blood.

I’m a sucker for dual timeline books.

I felt welcomed into the story as if I was the third member of the group.

The twist at the end.

Book Quote: “I wanted to ask her if she felt like I did, if the years when we’d been friends still seemed more important than anything that had happened since.”

Rating: 5 stars
