Bringing the Summer

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Review

As the summer comes to an end, a chance dramatic event results in Freya meeting Gabes and she is soon welcomed into his large, warm and chaotic family. Gradually she finds herself drawn to his enigmatic older brother Theo and, as she begins a new chapter in her life at college, she realises she has to make some difficult decisions about what she really wants…

This is a gentle and moving story about friendship, growing up and making decisions as life starts to change. Freya and Theo have both lost someone they love and gradually learn to deal with their sadness and look forward, embracing all that life has to offer. Bringing the Summer is an ultimately uplifting novel that will be particularly appealing to teenage girls.
