A new romance of her own?Bea and her boyfriend are heading off to college together in the fall just like they planned when they started dating But Bea isn’t sure she wants the same things as when she was thirteenVi has a crush on the girl next door It makes her happy and n The one word that perfectly sums up The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls? ADORABLE Honestly if this isn't the perfect start of summer read I don't know what is My favorite thing about this book? The Garrett Girls of course I'm always a little leery of books with multiple POVs; however Jessica did a fantastic job of not only alternating between the girls but also making their voice's sound distinctive and completely originally I loved that each sister was so different Des the oldest holds the mom role in the family Ever since the sisters lost their mom Des has tried her best to step into her role She cooks she cleans she keeps track it's not an easy job but she loves her sisters Des is strong resourceful and hardworking I admired what she did for her family; however there were so many times I wished she would start living her own life a little stepping out of her comfort zone The introduction of a new potentially wild friend pushes this into play and I enjoyed seeing the outcome Next up Bea To the outside world she has the perfect life a long term boyfriend she'll most likely marry and acceptance to one of the best colleges in the country The only problem? She's tired of it all She doesn't want any of it any She wants adventure to find her true purpose not to live up to everyone else's expectations of what she should be doing I found Bea to be the most relatable out of all the girls I think everyone's reached that point in their lives where they stop and think wait why am I doing this? And this really what I want? I know I have Over the course of the story Bea takes some risks makes some bold choices and while they aren't always ideal I gave her props She started to take control again no matter how messy everything became My only compliant? I wish she would've been a bit straightforward with her boyfriend I felt bad for the poor guy Kat is the wild child Dramatic and sassyit's no surprise that Kat is an actress After landing the lead role in her town's play this summer Kat knows she should be excited but she's letting her boy troubles get in the way She wants revenge against her ex but for some reason it's getting harder and harder to achieve itAt first I wasn't the biggest fan of Kat She seemed immature and I wish she would let the whole ex boyfriend thing go He seemed like a jerk definitely not someone to waste time thinking about As the book continued however I started to like Kat and She became human She got involved in a fake relationship that became and real by the second and she was scared and confused Could she let someone back in her life in that kind of way? Also was revealed about her past She's struggled with an eating disorder most of her life and she's tired of her sisters always focusing on it Last but not least Vi Vi's the youngest She's bookish and uiet preferring her favorite books to the company of other's times than none But there's one person she'd put down her book for CeCe I couldn't help but root for Vi the whole way through especially when it came to her getting the girl Cece and Vi were adorable together I loved how they bonded over their love of books I also liked that Jessica spent a good amount of time developing their relationship It started as unreuited love turned into friends and then maybe into something Honestly out of all the girls Vi was probably the strongest sister She knew what she wanted and even though she was used to letting her fears get in the way of her wants she wasn't letting that get her this time She was a cool girl and I wanted nothing than for her to have a happy ending As can be expected the plot mainly focuses on the girls's summers The drama the romance the adventure the risksIt's what moved this book forward but as I alluded to above the girls are what made this book so special I also enjoyed the shore setting It added such a wonderful summer vibe to the story Overall The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls is must read in my opinion Funny and emotional The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls will have a little something for everyone My only compliant? I wish it was longer I needed of the Garrett's that's for sure ARC was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Book Blog | Twitter | Bloglovin | Goodreads

The Last Summer of the Garrett GirlsErvous but Cece has a boyfriendso it’s not like her feelings could ever be reciprocated right?As the oldest Des shoulders a lot of responsibility for her family and their independent bookstore Except it’s hard to dream big when she’s so busy taking care of everyone els This honestly has SO MANY elements that I look for in a contemporary so I was kinda super excited I’m a sucker for family stories especially sibling relationships So a story about 4 sisters last summer all together at home before they start moving on with their own futures had my name written all over it Unfortunately the story didn’t really wow me I enjoyed it but I didn’t love it Though I do think it’s a perfect “between book” to read especially in the summer Things I Liked Guess who will always love a fake dating trope MEEEEE So I was super excited to see one here Honestly I’d probably just read the book for Kat and Mase because they were both super cute and both great in their own waysThere was a lot of great diversity in this story too Mase is a bisexual Asian American character Vi the youngest Garrett sister is an out and proud lesbian Vi’s love interest Cece is a ueer latinx character There’s also a lot of talk about feminism and Vi’s feminist screen tees are always good for a laugh Kat also discusses her issues with her eating disorder and while she’s in recovery the topic isn’t ignored Things I Didn’t Like I think that the 3rd person POV kept me a bit removed from the story I just didn’t connect to the characters at all and I felt off to me I found Des to be uber naive given that she’s the oldest and has the most responsibility I guess I just found her to be too trusting and if your going to have a character flaw that’s not a bad one to have even if it can read frustratingly Bea was definitely my least favorite sister and since her whole storyline revolved around cheater she never really stood a chance with me There were so many pop culture references and everyone of them drew me right out of the story I also found a majority of them to feel forced and kinda try hardThis wasn’t the best book I’ve read recently but I did still enjoy it It’s like junk food in a book form not because the uality isn’t there or it lack substance but because it makes you feel good you have a great time with it and it makes you want to read The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls is a solid summer read about family and self discovery I received a copy of the book from Sourcebooks FIRE via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
