    4.5 stars. "Whatever we'd been swimming away from, whatever we sensed lurking inside that gold nylon graduation cap above us, maybe we'd been right to fear it. We say we'll never be like them, but it happens. It happens gradually. We give in a little here, put off the hard decision ...

    4.5 Stars! The thrill of the chase. Entering into other people's worlds, so different from your own. One fact leading to another, feeling your way through the dark, sometimes crawling and sometimes backing up and sometimes running. The certainty that the story is important, that yo...

    Full Review on The Candid Cover Summer Hours by Amy Mason Doan is an interesting coming of age book set in the 1990s and 2008. The characters are so dynamic, and the main character, Rebecca, is one that is easy to relate to, although her choices make things hard for her. The setting...

    Got my hands on an early ecopy & tore through it very quickly over a rainy weekend. Summer Hours is a classic but surprisingly twisty summery story that the author handles with heart and intelligence. Sexy, slow-burn tease of a plot that more than pays off in an ending that will...
