This is a beautifully written novel about love, friendship, and the things we carry with us long after the moments in which we experience them end. 20 Boy Summer is more than just your average YA romance. It balances an original teenage voice with prose and metaphor that will haunt you long after you put it down. And as a writer, it made me want to re-read every line I've written in the past six months, in an attempt to strive for that sort of perfection.
I fell in love with all the main characters, and had trouble deciding who I loved the most because each of them was so heartbreaking and real. This book will change the way you think about your past, the present, and the places you hold your memories.
