Sarah Dessen's first book, and not my favorite of hers. Although I love that it was adapted into a Mandy Moore movie, it says something that plot elements from both That Summer AND Someone Like You were required to make said movie. That Summer is kind of slight, not exactly the juicy YA of today. But it hints at the Sarah Dessen books that were to come (including glimpses of those stupid Mall Models that also appear in Just Listen). Recommended for fans.
