Formats: Hardcover, eBook, audiobook

ONE SUMMER in the French countryside, among sun-kissed fields of lavender . . .
ANOTHER SUMMER in upstate New York, along familiar roads that lead to surprises . . .
When Summer Everett makes a split-second decision, her summer divides into two parallel worlds. In one, she travels to France, where she’s dreamed of going: a land of chocolate croissants, handsome boys, and art museums. In the other, she remains home, in her ordinary suburb, where she expects her ordinary life to continue — but nothing is as it seems.
In both summers, she will fall in love and discover new sides of herself. What may break her, though, is a terrible family secret, one she can't hide from anywhere. In the end, it may just be the truth she needs the most.
From New York Times bestselling author Aimee Friedman comes an irresistible, inventive novel that takes readers around the world and back again, and asks us what matters more: the journey or the destination.

Blog Post 4: Favorite Beach Reads

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Needless to say, I love France and I love a good love story, and this delightful novel offers both, and then some. It’s evocative, fun, and transporting: the hallmarks of a great summer read. Enjoy it at an outdoor café while eating a chocolate croissant.

Love and Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch

Speaking of transporting.... I just finished reading this delicious, charming novel set in Italy. Can you tell I adore books involving European travel?

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

When you want something a little darker and grittier—maybe it’s a thunderstorm-y kind of summer day—look no further than this brilliant, twisty, page-turning take on a classic story.  To me, a good beach read is one you cannot put down, and this book will grip you! (second runner-up for this category: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn).

Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

Pretty much the perfect beach book: smart, compelling, fun, and dishy, all about best friends and weddings and summer in New York City and the Hamptons. And so, so well-written. I’m an Emily Giffin superfan.

Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan
Another book that will transport you, this time to a seaside New England cabin. The story follows several different women, and will make you long for a summer at the ocean, learning family secrets.

3 winners will receive a signed finished copy of TWO SUMMERS and TWO SUMMERS travel bags, US Only.
