Praise
“Light and romantic." —The New York Times
 
“Fits like a favorite pair of pants.” —USA Today

“A great summer read.” —The Sacramento Bee

"The characters seem like old friends, and the author's sure ear for dialogue and her empathy for her protagonists' complicated emotions creates a story as comfortable as an old pair of jeans. A big, complex, satisfying sequel." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred

"Equally authentic and engaging." —Publishers Weekly 

"The Second Summer, while breezy and fun to read, deals seriously with love lost and found, death, and finding the courage to live honestly." —Amazon.com

"[A] big-hearted, complex tale of living, learning, and caring." —School Library Journal

"Brashares has done an outstanding job of showing the four teens growing up and giving readers a happy, ultimately hopeful book, easy to read and gentle in its important lessons." —Booklist

"It takes a really good book to leave you laughing one moment and crying the next. This book did just that. It is even better than the first book." —VOYA

"Although these teens deal with issues common to YA novels—identity, romance, parental conflict—Brashares' tale, with its lively characters, honest emotion, and wry wit, rises above the norm." —Children's Literature
