The Summer of Us A swoon worthy story about five best friends on a whirlwind trip through Europe perfect for fans of Jenny Han Stephanie Perkins and Jennifer E SmithAmerican expat Aubrey has only two weeks left in Europe before she leaves for college and she’s nowhere near ready Good thing she and her best friend Rae have planned one last group trip across the continent From Paris to Prague they’re going to explore This book is like a train ride As in you start at the beginning and you’re introduced to these characters and their histories and you’re sort of overwhelmed with everything just how you feel when you’re on a platform getting on the train Then you’re on the journey itself and you see their paths unravel in front of you like you’re watching roadstrees towns pass by in the window And you can’t do anything about the way the train just passes them by so all you can really do is sit back and enjoy the ride And this? This was a good train ride it was hard to believe that outside the world was moving as fast as it could But in here—for now at least—they were holding stillI love the characters I think they were all written so well Like they talked like actual teenagers I liked that each of them had their own mannerisms and they all clicked and it was so fun to read from When you go into a summer contemporary talking about romance you kind of expect these milestones of “Girl likes boy Boy likes girl They kiss at some point” Etc but I realized in the middle that this was a book about friendship than anything else And I love books about friends ”Can we stay here?” She held on to him as if he were the only thing keeping her in place The only thing that could stop her from falling “I want to stay here a bit longer”It’s about the way you feel these unseen cords connecting you and your friends pulled taut when you’re all leaving each other to college at the end of summer It’s about realizing that you can keep holding onto each other How you can feel different but the same all at the same time I really enjoyed the friendships My one compliant is that the relationship drama got a bit too much sometimes which is fair but it just got repetitive and tiringI’m kind of attached to Aubrey but I think I could’ve 100% loved this if this was just Rae and Clara’s story UGH RAE WAS SO GOOD I loved her and how shy sweet she was with her love and I love gay girls so much oh my god They deserve ALL the love in the world But I think Aubrey is a nice balance to have and she’s not annoying despite the whole love triangle stuff so that was good She lowered her head and saw Clara leaning against a wall by the Eurostar check in And that’s when Rae’s heart—and her lungs and probably everything else inside her—started to collapse For a moment the station uieter Even the air in her chest went stillI also wish we got of Europe There was a lot descriptions of the places in Paris I think In Prague they mention one location and it’s mostly description of the photos Rae is taking I just want of Europe okay I don’t mean like travel journal but still They went to Rome and it just felt like a backdrop for them to hang out rather than oh my god it’s ROME You know? Yeah I might be biased because I just really love Europe I definitely think this is the best European travel summer book I’ve read so far The friendships were sweet and funny and heartwarming and it’s just a good book When Aubrey thought about the trip she imagined her whole life expanding She imagined moving beyond the walls of her tiny room in London and beyond high school and beyond everything that had seemed so important when she was a kid She saw herself on a train watching the world become a rush of color outside her window Feeling like everything she’d been waiting for was about to begin But that didn’t mean she was ready
