it was amazing
Read from October 20 to 21, 2010

I had a hard time getting through The First Summer, it's uncomfortable, but so glad I girded my loins and soldiered through it. The ending was superb. I find few endings satisfying but this one was perfect. Had to read it twice to make sure I got it! I did. There were a few hitches along the way, I felt like the character Jane was incomplete, I had trouble connecting with her, and I was confused about the age of the grandfather. Did he age 40 years in two summers? Ayelet is an accomplished author, this is the second book of hers I've read and loved them both.
