Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler


After a horrible year, can two best friends make this the summer to remember? Tragedy strikes and leaves two families fighting just to have things back to normal again. Two friends travel to California, to both remember and forget.

I just love Anna. I think she is one of a few of main characters that I have truly been able to relate to. Her best friend Frankie can be trying, but she totally reminded me of a friend from childhood. The boy characters were generally a little too nice and rounded for me. Love generally tended to be a little too neat, but I still got sucked in anyway.

“Twenty Boys” is a realistic look at coping with loss. Don’t discount it because it has “summer” in its name. The book was nothing like I thought it was going to be, and that’s a good thing. Take a chance on “Boys” and you might find a nice surprise.
