This book is totally different from anything Jane Harvy-Berrick has ever written. It’s not a romance. There’s a romance in the story, but the story isn’t a romance. It’s a stunning coming-of-age story that will rip you apart.

Nick’s life is one long series of miserable moments. His mother has recently died, his sister can’t stand him, his best friend is changing for the worse, and his girlfriend’s parents hate him.

"Sometimes I really thought God hated me. It was mutual."

At seventeen Nick’s world is changing in unimaginable ways. But even though he should be torn apart, he’s standing, struggling to survive. This isn’t a sob story. Nick is strong in ways I couldn’t fathom. He isn’t overly opportunistic, but he isn’t lamenting over what his life could have been either. He’s just a seventeen-year-old kid who’s been dealt a s***y hand and is dealing with it the best he can.

Nick’s no longer a child, but he’s not an adult either. The amount of emotions he has to deal with in one summer would be overwhelming to anyone, let alone a seventeen-year-old. Guilt, wonder, heartbreak, anger, frustration, despair, first love; each emotion shapes him, changes him until at the end of the summer he’s something different.

Jane Harvey-Berrick overwhelmed me with emotions. She manipulates words in a way that completely captures the characters feelings. The prose and emotion connect in a way that is astounding. It’s like she gave me words to express what I was feeling even before I understood what I was trying to say.

"Give me a lifetime of feeling this. Give me now and then and soon and when, and give me a future, give me life, give me hope."

Every scene of this story had purpose.

I LOVED the book! it was an easy read. I couldn't wait to get at it! the characters were by themselves, strong, each one with their own purpose. Anything Jane writes is GOLD, but I enjoyed the story line immensely and the googly way teens act and of course their own "erotic" love, and experimentation. This kid has to go through some serious stuff for a 17 year old and he is entitled to all the feelings he has and how he comes out of all of it. Bravo Jane!

Every Time Jane announces a book, I know I have to buy it. Own it. Again, she surprised me with an ARC.You can imagine now my reaction when I woke up, check my inbox and there was waiting for me Nick!

Jane has done it. She wrote another great story.
Not repetitive. Not predictive. Summer of Seventeen is a Simple, Life-Like, Emotional ride. From the bottom of my heart I will tell you this: Get your tissues ready and breathe. This is a Page Turner and is prepared for a battle. Summer of Seventeen will take hostages from page one to the very end. True story!
There's lot to say about this story, but I will stick to the basics. I don't want to give you any spoiler. The Title, Cover and blurb says it all. This is the story of, 17 year old, Nick and how he spent this particular summer. Summer! Yay! Beaches. Hang out with friends. Girls, Girls and more girls. Doing nothing. Typical summer for a typical boy next door. I was very far from the truth. This book is different. Captivating different. And that's why you will fall in love with the story.
I'm pretty sure you have heard this quote before "What happened was supposed to happen in that way and oder for a reason." Right? I agree 100%. The book is written from Nick's ( Main character ) POV. I enjoyed being inside Nick's mind. How he processed everything around him. Nothing about his emotions. His decisions. The way he talked. Nothing felt fake. All of the characters were likable and as usual some ( Marcus *coughs* Mine! *coughs* ) became my favorite or I love them more than others. Remember the quote? "What happened was supposed to happen . . . " All the situations affecting Nick. Direct or indirect. None of them felt rushed or unreal. It felt like reading a book with a label : Based on a true story.

Reviewed for paranormal romance and authors that rock.

This book should be aimed at the teen market, and is a standalone book.

It is well written and will keep you hooked from the start to the finish.
It will make you laugh and cry. It is hard hitting but overall a brilliant read. The characters are well thought out and you will feel a lot of emotions with the way it's written.

Nicky is looking forward to summer holidays but when his mother dies from cancer, his life is changed forever. He is living with his sister Julie and life is hard at best. Things get so bad they need to rent out his mother's old room, the get Marcus as a lodger.

Nicky's girlfriend, Yansi's parents don't like him. So he can only see her at certain times. He absolutely adores her. His best friend Sean, likes to party hard with drugs and alcohol. Nicky manages to get a part time job with Yansi's dad doing yard work all day.

After going to a party with Sean, Nicky's life is changed yet again as he is caught with another girl and Yansi finds out and dumps him. Sean takes something that lands him in the hospital. Nickey gets fired for taking his friend to the hospital.

Will Julie believe him or will he get kicked out for not contributing to the rent. Will his life ever get better again.
