After reading and loving Jenny Han's trilogy about Lara Jean, I was curious about her previous trilogy, so I started listening to this first book on audio. It completely exceeded my expectations. This book has everything I loved in novels when I was a teenager: a summertime beach setting, lifelong friendships, potential romance, and flashbacks to childhood. The writing is really good throughout the book, and it's a very emotional story, but resists becoming totally maudlin. It did feel a little older to me than just ten years, but that was a bonus for me. I've already started the second book, and so far, it's just as good. If you liked Lara Jean, or you're a fan of summertime romance authors like Sarah Dessen, definitely give this series a try!
