Something Like Summer

Something Like Summer  - Jay Bell

This definitely isn't a book for me. The more I read the more convinced I become that I'll hate it if I finish reading it. So, it's better I stop now while I still think there are some redeeming qualities—namely the writing even if it is all about telling—in this painful novel. Part of me understands why so many love this book, but another part of me thinks those people don't know what they're talking about. I stopped reading at 49%.
