But while Lori and the "baby" brother, Adam, are inseparable friends, she can't deny a secret crush on Sean, the older Vader boy. This year Sean's been paying Lori a lot of attention, and not in a brotherly way. This was the perfect summer read, the story was light, heartwarming and funny. The author did such a great job of portraying teenagers that I felt like I was in the awkward stages of my teen years all over again.
I loved the dynamic of the relationship between the Vader brothers, Adam and Sean. The fighting between them and the jokes were all part of what made the book great, the characters were real and you could easily identify with them.
Lori was such a great main character; she was really sweet and just had this way of taking something and turning it into the most complicated thing ever. It’s almost as if chaos found her which made for a hilarious read. This book was a short read as I flew through the book in one sitting. I felt a connection with each of the characters and although at times the story was predictable I was still able to enjoy it. The writing was engaging and flowed well.
I now see what all the hype about Jennifer Echol’s books are about and I am definitely going to read the rest of her books. This was definitely a fun read!
Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols
I have to say this I was okay with the way the first book ended, it felt complete to me. I didn’t really see the need for a sequel and it actually ruined the story for me.
