Review: Who does not want to follow their favorite band on tour? Actually Chelsea, one of our reviewers, got to experience this when she followed Phish one summer across the country. She said a lot of this book reminded her of what she went through. Including getting to see another side of her friends. This is another one of those books that really is YA and not an adult book trying to hide itself under the YA genera. L and Leah’s friendship is believable, and it’s great to see how it unravels. What they experience with their friendship is what most teenage girls go through when they are getting ready to go their separate ways after high school ends. This book is a great read. Elizabeth makes you feel like you’re also part of their journey. This another book you should add to your summer reads.
So, put on your favorite tunes and read How I Spent my Summer Vacation
