    When Britta sees the ad for the house in the woods, she thinks it'll be a great getaway, and she immediately tags Meredith, who's sort of her friend, to go with her. Meredith knows that she should be spending her summer working on her college admissions essays or volunteering, but find...

    *Review is of an advanced reader copy I have long enjoyed books about summer camp. Much more so than I enjoyed the actual summer camp experience myself. (Because it is awfully nice to have the comfort of my own bed and a non-communal shower with ample hot water.) Girls of July, alth...

    Cuuuuutte. So cute that on a day where I planned on reading a ton of books for a sales meeting I read the entirety of this nearly 500-page tome. The characters read a little young but this is just purely sweet. A little bit of a Traveling Pants feel. ...

    Three very different young women, still in high school, decide, independently, to share a cabin with another young woman and her grandmother for the month of July in the Adirondack mountains with no cell coverage, no malls, and none of the other advantages of city life. Each told thems...

    When Alicia "Spider" Webster posts an ad for teen housemates to join her in her family's cabin in the Adirondacks, she never expected it to be a life-changing experience. Spider's grandmother Ruthie was concerned about the reclusive nature of her granddaughter's lifestyle. Suffering fr...

    Sometime in about seventh or eighth grade, I lost the brash confidence I had as a ten to twelve year old and at thirteen devised new ways to keep people around me. Instead of relying on common interests and mutual affinities and making friends that ranged from book nerds to animal love...

    This is a good, quick summer read. Four girls spend the summer together, and have big epiphanies about their lives. They become better people, and help one girl's grandmother find a lost love. It's sweet and predictable -a good, fast vacation book! The writing is good, and the characte...

    Most YA novels have a pretty big focus on romance, and believe me, I understand why. The teen years are a time when having crushes on people and falling in love is top of mind. However, Girls of July is different in a way that was really refreshing to me. Girls of July is about fou...

    The setup: four girls with very different personalities (the outgoing drama queen, the nerd, the outcast, the perfect rich girl) opt to spend a month in a cabin in upstate New York over the summer. Each girl is seeking to escape something in her daily life, and none of them really expe...

    A charming and empathetic story of friendship and overcoming differences. Four girls share a cabin for a month in the Adirondack mountains - each has her own reasons for wanting to escape to the middle of nowhere and is facing important decisions about her future. Chapters alternate be...

    I absolutely adored this one. So many great threads woven together. It's overtly a story about friendship, and how the four protagonists find it as they are thrust together. Moreover, though it's a story about each girls, and even Ruthie's, journey of self discovery and overcoming what...

    This was a long book, but worth reading. Four very different girls rent a cabin in Northeast New York State (owned by a girl who goes by the name Spider and her grandmother). The three girls who end up joining the two for the month of July are all trying to figure out what they want...

    I loved this story! The setting is so beautiful and all the characters were completely real to me. Four girls come together in a remote cabin, away from their 'normal' lives, all of them looking for some kind of peace or escape. Each one has fixed ideas about herself and about each oth...

    What a great YA read! I totally enjoyed this story of love lost, and four teens who spend the summer at a cabin, disconnected (for the most part) from social media and societal problems. I love the nature focus and how the girls work to discover themselves and friendship. Great read! K...

    Bubbly Britta and her brainy classmate Meredith travel from Miami to a small town in the Adirondacks for July, along with Kate from Georgia. All of them need to get away from their homes for the summer, and answering aspiring filmmaker Spider's ad for housemates seems like a good place...

    Four very different young women, looking for an escape, find themselves sharing a cabin in the mountains. At first, they only seem to see their differences, but as they take the time to scratch beneath the surface, they find they share a lot more than just pierced ears. This was su...

    "Girls of July" by Alex Flinn was a pleasant surprise for me! The book is really well written and the characters are just, well their just perfect for this story! There's Spider the filmmaker, and her grandmother Ruthie, an old theater girl with a 50 year old secret, there's the drama...

    This book is 480 pages long...which is 180 pages too much. I love contemporary summer-friendship reads as much as the next person...but not when they're almost 500 pages long ;_; It was just too much and the story could've been wrapped up sooner. Things I liked: -FRIENDSHIPS ...

    I thought this book was a pretty fantastic summer read. I've loved Alex Flinn since I read her book "Beastly". If you need a feel good book about finding yourself featuring relatable characters, this one is for you. It reads so easily it's almost like reading my own thoughts for what I...

    The Breakfast Club meets The Sisterhood of the traveling pants. 3.75 stars. The format was unique but I struggled at times to keep up and understand who was saying and doing what. I enjoyed all of the movie, book, and poetry references- that alone earned two stars. Every reader will...

    I did get Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants vibes which I expected before I started it but it was different in that these characters weren't already best friends and they didn't split up for the summer. my thoughts: Spider = Tibby (they both are interested in filmmaking but Spider ...

    I really enjoyed the overall character growth and character connections in this book. This book didn't feel as plot driven as I typically like, but the character driven storylines really drew me in and this was a book that I enjoyed quite a bit. ...

    As a whole: Girls of July is a cute summer story about friendship and finding yourself. It follows Britta, a bubbly personality trying to stay away from her mother's lowlife boyfriend for the summer; Meredith, a focused and driven student trying to get a break from school after a publi...

    My full review can be found on the Epilie Aspie Chick blog! I loved this book from page one and couldn't put it down! These four girls are so real that you can feel what they're going through. Each one has a dynamically different personality and problem to navigate. In the process,...

    Thank you to Edelweiss for providing me with an eArc of this book. It has not affected my opinions or my review. Unfortunately, this book is one that fell flat for me. I feel like the storylines of the four girls turned out to be stereotypical and cliche without enough depth to brin...

    DNF at 28% I couldn't bring myself to finish it. It was boring and I didn't like the writing style. There were so many word repetitions and all the time all the first names were mentioned anew instead of saying "she ". It simply sounded ridiculous to hear a first name mentioned three ...
