The Lovereading4Kids comment
An addictive and understanding read which charts one summer in the lives of three girls and captures the importance of friendship and in particular of weathering the changes to it on the cusp of adolescence. Ama, Polly and Jo were once inseparable; now their lives hardly seem to overlap. Maybe they are no longer friends? Each has different, exciting, and dramatic summer vacations and all three come home knowing that their friendship endures at the heart of everything.
The Summer That Changed Everything by Ann Brashares
Three girls. One summer. Their friendship to salvage ...Ama, desperate to live up to her family's expectations, finds herself on an outdoor adventure summer camp. Can she stick it out or will this be the first time in her life she's ever failed anything? Tomboy, loner Polly discovers that her grandmother used to be a model and decides she's going to follow in her footsteps - even if it means starving herself to get thin. Jo's parents' are still grieving the death of her older brother and she's stuck in the middle of their messy divorce. She's got her own problems this summer too - has she made a mistake by turning her back on her old friends? Having let their friendship fade, can these three girls, with their three very different lives, struggle through the summer without each other, or will they realise they've made a mistake?
