#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
In the summer of 1977, Victoria Leonard’s world changes forever when Caitlin Somers chooses her as a friend. Dazzling, reckless Caitlin welcomes Vix into the heart of her sprawling, eccentric family, opening doors to a world of unimaginable privilege, sweeping her away to vacations on Martha’s Vineyard, an enchanting place where the two friends become “summer sisters.”
Now, years later, Vix is working in New York City. Caitlin is getting married on the Vineyard. And the early magic of their long, complicated friendship has faded. But Caitlin begs Vix to come to her wedding, to be her maid of honor. And Vix knows that she will go—because she wants to understand what happened during that last shattering summer. And, after all these years, she needs to know why her best friend—her summer sister—still has the power to break her heart.
Praise for Summer Sisters
“Compulsively readable . . . [Blume’s] powers are prodigious.”—The New York Times Book Review
“As warm as a summer breeze blowing through your hair, as nostalgic as James Taylor singing ‘How Sweet It Is.’ You remember. So does Judy Blume. How sweet it was.”—Chicago Tribune
“An exceptionally moving story that can leave the reader laughing and crying . . . sometimes at the same time . . . Blume creates a rich tapestry of characters.”—The Denver Post
“Blume’s characters still tend to hover after the book is set aside. . . . She catches perfectly the well-armored love between longtime female friends.”—The Seattle Times
I wasn't quite sure about this book when I first picked it up, but then I couldn't put it down. The character development is wonderful. It is a great book to read on the beach!
I picked this book up while on vacation on Cape Cod. I couldn't put it down! If you read all the pre teen classics of Judy Blume you're going to enjoy this book! I felt 10 again! It was a nice easy read...
I first read this book about 5 years ago and have read it SOOO many times. I must say it is one of my favorite books of all time.
I loved this book. I read alot of Judy Blume when I was younger and this was a great read. The relationships in this book are chaotic and fun and reminds you how screwed up your life and others can be even when it seems they have it all.
