No writer captures the seasons of our lives better than Judy Blume.  Now, from the New York Times bestselling author of Wifey and Smart Women, comes an extraordinary novel of reminiscence and awakening--an unforgettable story of two women, two families, and the friendships that shape a lifetime.When Victoria Leonard answers the phone in her Manhattan office, Caitlin's voice catches her by surprise.  Vix hasn't talked to her oldest friend in months.  Caitlin's news takes her breath away--and Vix is transported back in time, back to the moment she and Caitlin Somers first met, back to the casual betrayals and whispered confessions of their long, complicated friendship, back to the magical island where two friends became summer sisters.Caitlin dazzled Vix from the start, sweeping her into the heart of the unruly Somers family, into a world of privilege, adventure, and sexual daring.  Vix's bond with her summer family forever reshapes her ties to her own, opening doors to opportunities she had never imagined--until the summer she falls passionately in love.  Then, in one shattering moment on a moonswept Vineyard beach, everything changes, exposing a dark undercurrent in her extraordinary friendship with Caitlin that will haunt them through the years.As their story carries us from Santa Fe to Martha's Vineyard, from New York to Venice, we come to know the men and women who shape their lives.  And as we follow the two women on the paths they each choose, we wait for the inevitable reckoning to be made in the fine spaces between friendship and betrayal, between love and freedom.Summer Sisters is a riveting exploration of the choices that define our lives, of friendship and love, of the families we are born into and those we struggle to create.  For every woman who has ever had a friend too dangerous to forgive and too essential to forget, Summer Sisters will glue you to every page, reading and remembering.Judy Blume's twenty-one books have sold over sixty-five million copies worldwide and have been translated into twenty languages.  She spends summers on Martha's Vineyard with her family.

50 Word Book ReviewThe novel lacks conviction. I’m reeling in shock as Summer Sisters by Judy Blume currently holds a 3.8 rating on goodreads. Commonplace characters set in a weak plot: natural disaster. A heavy emphasis on the characters’ teenage years, the story has potential, but failed miserably...

4.0 Summer Sisters: A Novel
I used to have a Caitlin in my life. While (for the most part) I'm glad I don't anymore, I smiled and cried throughout this quick read because it reminded me a lot of that relationship (that lasted from 15 through my early 20s).

3.0 Summer Sisters
I read this almost 10 years ago at this point, and I enjoyed it much more THEN than I did today. Maybe it was the audio book version, but even still.. I don't remember there being so much sex and dirty talk. I have no issues with that, but I don't remember it being like that when I read it a while b...
