Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7509 comments I will join you ladies in reading That Summer by Sarah Dessen . I have it and Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen combined into one book but for some reason, I read 'Someone Like You' but never read 'That Summer'.

I love the movie 'How to Deal' so I am very excited to read That Summer by Sarah Dessen !

message 23: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments I finished That Summer by Sarah Dessen
it was a cute, coming of age, but I think I was hoping for more romance.
it's a great summer read though :D


message 24: by Mehsi (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments *wishes it was summer*
I am a bit late, but I will read something too.
I will read: The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller


message 25: by Mehsi (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments Done with my book. It was ok. There were quite some things I didn't like though.

Sorry you didn't like it more! I hate when I read a book and it just leaves me disappointed! :(

That's ok Becky! I'm glad you at least found a book for challenge #5!! :)


message 35: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7509 comments I finished That Summer by Sarah Dessen . I was also disappointed with the lack of romance in the book. I bought the book years ago in a two book edition (including Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen ). Parts of both books were combined to make the movie How to Deal. I must say that I enjoyed Someone Like You more.

Kathy | 7950 comments Mandiann, I heard that That Summer by Sarah Dessen didn't have much romance and that is one of the main reasons I'm hesitant to pick it up. I guess I have to be not in the mood for a romance to read it. lol :D

And thanks for reminding me I need to look up that movie at my library so I can check it out!! :)
