Review: The Summer I Learned to Dive
The Summer I Learned to Dive by Shannon McCrimmon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4.5 stars. I really enjoyed this book, wonderful characters, a compelling story. Watching people grow and change in realistic ways. A self-contained story but obviously ripe for a sequel, which I just bought. LOL
A different spin on coming of age than I have read. It only missed 5 stars in my eyes because it didn't have quite the pop of a [a:Nyrae Dawn|5784345|Nyrae Dawn|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1354150152p2/5784345.jpg] or [a:Colleen Hoover|5430144|Colleen Hoover|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1333056335p2/5430144.jpg] or some others. As a first book though I am very impressed and as I said, as soon as I tweeted I had finished it I bought the next book from my Kindle. That pretty much says it all.
