Two Summers (MP3 CD)
One decision, two very different outcomes. A charming story about a soon-to-be sixteen year old girl named Summer Everett. When Summer makes a last second decision to live with her dad in France for the summer, her world splits into two separate Summers that come together in the end. In one, she visits her father in France; and in the other, she stays home with her mother in upstate New York. Unlike what Summer was expecting, both summers consist of love and learning, and one terrible family secret that may be exposed. Will this truth rip the family apart or bring them back together?— Ellery, TC Teen Advisory Board member
Summer stands alone outside the boarding gate to flight 022, a nonstop flight to Marseille Provence Airport. Her phone buzzes in her hand, and the overdressed boarding agent is looking at her with a raised eyebrow. Her decision to answer the phone splits her summer, and her life, into two. In one world, she embarks on a journey to Provence, France, filled with rolling fields of poppies and charming cafés. In the other she stays in her suburban hometown of Hudsonville, finding adventure in what she thought would never change. In both worlds, however, she learns vast truths about herself, her family, and her friends. Two Summers by Aimee Friedman is an amazing read for anyone who loves to dream about other worlds, and anyone who ever wonders “what if”…— Avani, TC Teen Advisory Board member
From New York Times bestselling author Aimee Friedman comes an inventive novel about fate, family secrets, and new love, told in split narrative.
In this absorbing novel, Summer makes a choice that changes the whole course of the season ahead of her.
When her story divides, Summer finds herself alternately face to face with a longtime crush and worlds away. She is both living amid secrets and kept from them. But what matters more--the choices she makes or the experiences that shape her?
Set in both the south of France and stateside, the twisting, atmospheric Two Summers explores questions of fate, self-determination, and whether or not the journey matters more than the destination.
