Editorial Reviews

Review

"When the antisocial sommelier [Button Jackson] befriends recently divorced Meghan Cherry, and Dawn Martin, a top-gun attorney who's single and haplessly searching, the ladies' views on love, marriage and sisterhood catapult from awkward to awesome." -S. Tia Brown, Jet Magazine


"If Waiting to Exhale and Sex and the City procreated, the healthy, bouncing baby would read like Single Girl Summer. You'll live vicariously through Button, Dawn, and Meghan. Even if you've never set foot in Chicago, after reading this, you'll feel like a Chi-town native." -Lana Pipkins, thesavvysistah.com


"Single Girl Summer...is a breezy, enjoyable romp that will make you long for hot days and balmy nights in [Chicago]." -Kyra Kyles, Chicago Tribune RedEye

"Each character possesses her own plight that doesn't offset any other character, but compliments it." -Chivone Smith, Chicago Defender

"All three [characters] carry interesting stories and, my gosh, do they come with fun drama and baggage." -LaToya Cross, N'Digo

"Requesting Single Girl Summer The SEQUEL please. And that is all." -Zondra Hughes, Rolling Out

"A most enjoyable read"-Nikki Giovanni, Author and Poet

From the Inside Flap

This book is dedicated to dreamers
Who are pregnant with possibility, 
Unrelentingly pursuing their passion, 
And producing nothing short of phenomenal.
The journey to manifestation 
Can be trying and exhausting, 
But don't ever stop.
We need your dreams and contributions; 
They make life so sweet,
Like a ripe, juicy peach on a hot summer day.

Single Girl Summer is a wonderful mix of comedy, drama, and love. Once you begin reading it, you won't stop until you finish the whole book in one setting as I did! Do yourself and adult women in your life a favor and get a copy!

The old saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover", holds value here. I thought this was a Man bashing Novel the first time I read the Cover, only to find out it wasn't. It allows you to walk in the everyday life of these women, and have deeper respect for their experiences. Its something both Men, Women, and anyone from any City, State, or Country can all Relate to. Its Very funny, Entertaining, and a great Read for all Women and Men alike.

Format: Paperback
Mama Cherry in Chap 23, "True commitment is a bond strengthened on by intimacy, communication, common vision, respect, and loyalty."

Funny, but I've met this lady before on an isolated country road in the deep "SOUTH" sitting in her rocking chair waving as sporadic trucks passed by...

It was a simple stop to say "Hey" and "How u doing" but it turned me turning into a leprechaun as she filled my heart with GOLD. The various Mama Cherry's are the ladies who jointly raised the so-called male (and female) "prototypes" while planting a humble seed as they speak (insert Button's issue). There's nothing like that knowledge and prior experience that can address your biggest emotional crossroad about love and life like Mama Cherry did in very few words to Button. In hindsight, Mama Cherry brought home the point that Dawn was making all along that exploded at the Memorial Day party - that she had something substantial in someone. Both Dawn and Mama Cherry were saying the same but in a nostalgic way, Mama Cherry aimed at Buttons conscious for clarity so the choice was hers.

My next favorite or 'relate-able' character was indeed Henry who sounds like he's had a few Mama Cherry's in his past & possibly present...(which is why I can thoroughly relate to him the most). What's sad is there are several Henry's & Phillips out there who are overshadowed by with Rick's & Quarters who hurt the Dawn's who then think the Benjamin's are way out of their leagues!

Just finished single girl summer on kindle. OMG, it was such a good read. Reminded me of my last summer with my girl friends 'the best summa eva'. including the soundtracks. I think everyone who enjoys fun, friends and a good time can relate to many aspects of the book.

A MUST read!!!!!

This is a well written book by first time author, Deanna Burrell!! The characters had depth and you can see a little bit of yourself in each one. The author made you really "see" Chicago even if you're not a native!! The story had many twists and turns and shows the true value of sisterhood and friendship! I can't wait to see what Ms. Burrell has in store for us next!!

This was such a good book and it appealed the adult in me. This was a good book about what having friends REAL ones anyways can add to your life. The friendships in this book made me reflect and appreciate the friends I have in my life that gives it to me straight no chaser and not afraid to call me on my bs if need be. Get the book it is most certainly an excellent read and well worth the money!

This book was recommended by a friend and I wasn't expecting a lot, but this was a fun , quick read and reminded me a lot of the earlier Lolita Files books. And while you are reading this mix yourself up a little Single girl Sangria and enjoy.
3 bottles of dry white wine (Riesling, chardonnay, or sauvignon blanc)
1 can strawberry nectar - mix and sweeten to taste
Add chopped strawberries, pineapples, oranges to mix
Then add 3/4 can of lemon lime soda.
