A powerful novel about hope and heartbreak, “as much about loss as it is about first love and friendship” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).Sandwiched between two exceptional siblings, Taylor Edwards never felt like she stood out—except for her history of running away when things get too complicated. Then her dad receives unexpected, terrible news, and the family makes the last-minute decision to spend the summer together in the cramped quarters at their old lake house. Taylor hasn’t been to the summer house since she was twelve, and she definitely never planned on going back. Up at the lake she is confronted with people she thought she left behind, like her former best friend, Lucy, and Henry Crosby, her first crush, who’s all grown up…and a lot cuter. Suddenly Taylor is surrounded by memories she’d rather leave in the past—but she can’t run away this time. As the days lying on the beach pass into nights gazing at the stars, Taylor realizes she has a second chance—with friends, with family, maybe even with love. But she knows that once the summer ends, there is no way to recapture what she stands to lose. From Morgan Matson, the PW Flying Start author of Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, this is a remarkable novel about hope in the face of heartbreaking grief.

0.0 #32 - Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
Contemporary books are not my favourite, I liked them from time to time but it is definitely not what I read the most. Morgan Matson's books are always great, funny and emotional. This one was definitely more emotional. I don't often cry while reading, but the ending made me sobbing. I was cleaning ...

I wasn't ready! Morgan Matson & I can't be friends anymore (in my Blu Cantrell & R.L. voice)! This novel went places I didn't even think were possible for me. I am a fade into the background, don't draw too much attention to yourself kind of person because well it saves you some pain. However, it ca...

*4.5 stars I love it. I really do.. I cried my eyes out especially towards the end of the book. I love the way Taylor changed from being irresponsible to more matured person.I can relate to that. I admired how the Edward changed from taking thing for granted to really living the moment and accepti...

5.0 Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
Bring tissues! The last four or five chapters were a doozy. Especially for me. My dad and my step-dad's lives deaths came crashing back to me, and throughout chapter thirty-seven, I feel apart. Most of the story is not so sad. It's about young love. It's about family. It's about friendship. There i...

5.0 Review: Second Chance Summer
I took this book on holiday with me expecting some gentle summer fluff.Started out pretty much that way. Reasonably likable characters. Wasn't overly blown away by the main character, Taylor who seemed like your fairly average teenager forced to spend a summer with her family under some tough circum...
