Synopsis:

Warm Hawaiian sun. Lazy beach days. Flirty texts with her boyfriend back in Seattle.

These are the things seventeen-year-old Sloane McIntyre pictured when she imagined the summer she’d be spending at her mom’s home in Hawaii with her twin brother, Penn. Instead, after learning an unthinkable secret about her boyfriend, Tyler, and best friend, Mick, all she has is a fractured hand and a completely shattered heart.


Once she arrives in Honolulu, though, Sloane hopes that Hawaii might just be the escape she needs. With beach bonfires, old friends, exotic food, and the wonders of a waterproof cast, there’s no reason Sloane shouldn’t enjoy her summer. And when she meets Finn McAllister, the handsome son of a hotel magnate who doesn’t always play by the rules, she knows he’s the perfect distraction from everything that’s so wrong back home.

But it turns out a measly ocean isn’t nearly enough to stop all the emails, texts, and voicemails from her ex-boyfriend and ex-best friend, desperate to explain away their betrayal. And as her casual connection with Finn grows deeper, Sloane’s carefree summer might not be as easy to find as she’d hoped. Weighing years of history with Mick and Tyler against their deception, and the delicate possibility of new love, Sloane must decide when to forgive, and when to live for herself.





Time To Pack & Leave:

Sloane finds out at the beginning of the summer that her best friend, McKinley slept with her boyfriend and she's pregnant.


 Oh, when Sloane doesn't want to hear it at all. Let's also add to the fact that when her jerk of an ex tries to apologize he slips and reveals he slept with her twice.


 The fact that they did this to her; it's the perfect time to leave for the summer in Hawaii with her mom.

My Summer, Not Yours

Sloane wants this summer to be about her and not to focus on the betrayal of both her best friend which is hitting her the hardest. I would've done just like Sloane and ignored the mass number of texts, calls, e-mails as well.


She was very stubborn. During the weeks that follow, Sloane surrounds herself with people with positive influence. She meets Finn but through his younger sister, Lucy who she's teaching to swim again.


She begins a relationship with Finn and learns through the summer to live again.

Final Thoughts:

This was a great, summery read about not forgetting who you are and letting a situation dictate how you act or feel; but makes you stronger.


 Final Rating:
