The Summer My Life Began: Book One Kindle Edition
What happens when you discover your whole life has been a lie?
Em’s parents have her life mapped out for her: an internship at her father's firm, a degree from Harvard, and a career as a lawyer.
The only problem is, it's not what she wants.
So when she gets the opportunity to spend a month on a secluded island with a mysterious aunt, Em jumps at the chance.
Then there's the laid-back local sailor boy who is everything Em isn't and exactly what her parents don’t want for her. Naturally, she can't resist him. And for one single month, she's living life free of her strict upbringing.
But when Em uncovers a long-buried secret about her family, everything changes. Suddenly, she’s forced to make some big choices about her future—choices she never imagined she’d have to make.
One summer changes everything…

This touched me in a way books never do, and I read a lot. This novel will remain with me as how something wonderful can rise out of heartbreak!

This is a young adult coming of age story and I am very happy that I had the chance to read it. The writing is very good and the characters are wonderful. I love the heroine and enjoy seeing her come alive to the possibilities in front of her. Her mysterious aunt is also great fun. I found the story to be highly enjoyable and very engaging, making for a very pleasant weekend read.
