Review: That Summer

Good morning, my lovely readers! I hope you all have been having a great week. 🙂
This morning I am bringing you a review of Sarah Dessen’s debut novel, That Summer. This was definitely my least favourite of the ten books that I’ve read by her, but I’m glad I finally had the opportunity to read her first book.
I read this book for my Divination exam in the Magical Readathon!
Hope you enjoy!! ❤

For fifteen-year-old Haven, life is changing too quickly. She’s nearly six feet tall, her father is getting remarried, and her sister—the always perfect Ashley—is planning a wedding of her own.

Then an old boyfriend of Ashley’s reenters the picture, and through him, Haven sees the past for what it really was, and comes to grips with the future.
