Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler.

Hello, I added this book to the suggestion thread. I had a few people interested in this buddy read. So, here is the topic that you are now reading.

If you would like to join in this buddy read you can jump in any time you would like.

However, please no discussion about the book if you have read it already.

We will start the read on July 1st 2010. We will be reading about 50 pages (depending when chapter ends) each night and then discussing the following day. I'll write up questions but if you have anything that hits you and you want to discuss by all means write it down and post if for the following day for us to answer and discuss!

message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

I'd love to, but I can't :(:(:(

message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Ah, we are so sorry to hear that. Another time... But jump in if you manage to squeeze us in.

message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

I can't participate, but I tell you, it is a really good book!

message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh, if you read it already you can jump in an answer the questions as we go & discuss. I just don't want to talk about it before hand. That is how spoilers slip... LOL! I don't mind bc I"ll read it anyway but I know people do mind.

So, happy to hear it is a good book. I've been hearing a lot about the book.

message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh no, the problem is that I won't be on much from July till mid August.

message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

I see. Hopefully you will be have fun during those times. :)

message 9: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I will try to get the book. That will determine whether I can participate or not.

Angela B | 400 comments I would be in on this but I just read it a little while ago...

message 17: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I understand! It's okay; hoppefully you can still participate in the discussions?

message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes, please watch for discussion questions. I'll remind myself to remind you to jump in to conversation once we start.

Was it a good book? Yes, No?

message 19: by Angela (new)

Angela B | 400 comments Yessss I really liked it I'm tempted to do it as a re-read but there are so many new things out there that I just can't do it

message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

I know, there are so many books coming out this year. I can barely keep up. Well, I'm not but I"m still absolutely looking forward to them :)

message 21: by Angela (new)

Angela B | 400 comments Bullet came out today *does her crazy happy dance thing*

message 22: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherrij2003) | 170 comments So I kinda have a problem...I can't find this book at the library or at the book stores in town. I really wanted to participate in the buddy read b/c this book looks so good but I'm not sure if I'll be able to now. :(

message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

That is disappointing. The book store wont let you order it. The is what my book store always does. If it is not the shelf oh, she will get the book! She is crazy about it too! But she is so wonderful. The library not so much. There are so many loops to jump through. More then one person has to want to read the book apparently. Who would of thought? Any who.

Keep us posted. Hopefully, the force will be with you and bring you the book!

message 24: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherrij2003) | 170 comments Well....I just won this book on Ebay so hopefully I'll be able to participate *crosses fingers that it arrives on time!!*

message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

We can always hold and start a few days late. The fifth isn't such a big difference. Keep me in the loop.

SJH (A Dream of Books) | 1 comments I'd love to join in but just need to get hold of a copy of the book first!

message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

July 1st was the planned day to start. However, I am not against waiting for a few days until you two are able to get the book. Just let me know when you are ready then we can get started :)

message 28: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I want to read it as well. My mom is giving me her Kindle (Yay!), so I will try to get it on there. Wait for me? :)

message 29: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherrij2003) | 170 comments Just got my copy in the mail today so I'm ready...I just have to hurry up and finish the book I'm currently reading (which I don't think will be a problem b/c I'm really into it right now)!

message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Sounds good. I'm glad you got the book.

Ok, Now Z let us know if you will have the book on or around the 1st.

I'm excited to get the summer rolling with this book!!!

message 31: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Okay so my mother is taking forever to do it. And I really want to read this with yall. Just start reading it. I'll catch up easily, I'm sure.

message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

Ok. Well, How about we wait until the 3rd and give you a few days?

message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

Is that ok with everyone else?

message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

Is that ok with everyone else?

message 35: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherrij2003) | 170 comments Ok w/ me but since I read a little slower than ya'll do can I start now?

message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

Sure you can start. I actually talked to Z today and she told me her mom did not approved of the book because of the synopsis. So we can start reading and we can discuss as we go.

message 37: by Angela (new)

Angela B | 400 comments That's a bummer it's a good book, and it's not dirty or anything...well...not REALLY...I dunno maybe I'm not the right person to judge

message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

I know. It is hard to say. But she does let Z read alot of stuff so she lucky there. And as much as I don't like people saying what I can read, say, wear it is so wonderful that her mom cares enough to check :)

message 39: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherrij2003) | 170 comments So how far along is everybody on the reading??? Just curious...

message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

I recently started. :) happy so far.

Are you ready to discuss some tomorrow? I can't wait. It's fun to see what others think.

message 41: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherrij2003) | 170 comments I can discuss whenever...I'm actually reading this book faster than I though I's really good so far. As of this second I'm on chapter 14 pg 125.

message 42: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Hate that I'm missing out but i hope you all enjoy the book! ;)

message 43: by [deleted user] (new)

Wow! I thought you said you were a slow reader. I should of started last night! Now I'm so curious to see what has you flying through the pages!

message 44: by Angela (new)

Angela B | 400 comments It is nice that her mom cares, my mom would have died if she knew some of what I had been reading when I was younger

message 45: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherrij2003) | 170 comments I usually ama slow reader, lol! It seems when the chapters are shorter then I read faster for some reason. I guess cause when I get to the end of the chapter I count the next chapters pages (don't ask me why, I just do) and if it is short than I'll keep going...idk!

message 46: by Angela (new)

Angela B | 400 comments I only do that if I needed to do something, like go to bed. Otherwise I think it would make the book feel like it went on forever...

message 47: by [deleted user] (new)

1.) what do you think of the beginning?

2.) I was really not expecting such a major twist in the midddle!

3.) Do you have a best friend that has been around for so long that the person knows you like a book? How do you feel about the 3 way friendship?

4.) Did you find any quotes that popped out at you?

message 48: by [deleted user] (new)

1.) I loved the beginning of the book. I even sent Z a message to pit this book on her wishlist for later by page 11. Oh, boy! The frosting fight and the small romance was just so adorable.

2.) ok, I was so shocked. It was so unbelievable. Ah, it was a really sad part. Why did Matt die? I was looking forward to them blossoming somehow. Dying of a broken heart also sounds like a sad why to pass.

3.) yes, we were friends in middle school and some of HS. We lost touch for awhile but I found her address later on life and decides to write her I'm about whatever happened between us letter. We fell right back into step and I love her like a sister. Missy.

4.). However, cute and shocking the beginning was... No words had really popped out at me.

message 49: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherrij2003) | 170 comments How far into it are you???

message 50: by [deleted user] (new)

About page 70-75. I don't have it on me right now.

Are you enjoying the book. (counts for the challenge as well).
