Summer of Sloane by Erin L. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sloane is thinking about the summer she will be spending with her mother in Hawaii when she is confronted with the fact that her best friend slept with her boyfriend (TWICE!) and is now pregnant. She reacts in anger with the result that she broke her hand and her now ex-boyfriend’s nose. Sloane leaves the drama behind with the hope that Hawaii will be the escape that she is looking for. Hawaii provides Sloane friends, bonfires at the beach, a waterproof cast and a great looking guy, Finn. Will she ever forgive her friend and ex-boyfriend? Will Hawaii and everything it provides be the salve to soothe her aching heart?
Summer of Sloane is a stand-alone novel full of teen drama and romance. Readers quickly feel Sloan’s heartbreak and begin to hope that she can find love and trust in her life again. Summer in Hawaii may be beyond most reader’s experiences, yet Schneider creates a story that is easy to lose oneself in even though it is past our own understanding. The pages turn quickly and the summer ends before the book is complete. Readers won’t be disappointed in the decisions made by this feisty leading lady.
