My book podcast is BACK after a brief summer break… and I‘m thrilled to share Episode 201! On it, author Alison Rose Greenberg joins me to chat about SUMMER SISTERS in all of its teen angst, heartbreak, and drama. Link to listen in my bio!

Stuck between a so-so and pick on this one. Went with pick because for some reason I couldn‘t put it down. The writing was light and airy. It transports you back to middle school and high school summers with your best friends, figuring out life and all its mysteries. You find yourself relating to Vix, going through moments of loathing the type of friend Caitlin is. You get swept up on their journey, that‘s for sure.

fun and easy read but maybe don‘t write about kids and sex judy???? also caitlin was trash

tokorowilliamwallace On my last thrifted book haul, I found an 'adult' erotic novel by Judy Blume from the late 70s. Is your similar as geared towards adults rather than kids? 9mo
guidosophia @tokorowilliamwallace yes this is an adult book! i wouldn‘t say it‘s erotic but she writes about young kids experimenting with sex which is what weirds me out 9mo

There were parts I liked and parts I didn't like. I liked the characters, but not the sexual exploration of the children.

Butterfinger I have been meaning to read this for years and I #Finally can mark it off my list. #RoaringWolfChallenge @Roary47 @Littlewolf1 11mo
Roary47 Yay! Congratulations for getting it off your list. 11mo

This book is nothing special. The friendship between Vix and Caitlin reminded me of some of my own childhood friendships. Their connection as the age gets less believable and some of the things revealed by the end of the book is honestly so shocking that I found it difficult to relate anymore. I'm also not a fan of books that end on an unfinished note. I want closure for the characters.

All in all, it's a fun and easy read.

Summer Sisters is a story about two friends who grow up together and the bond they form through their summers together at Martha‘s Vineyard. It follows their journey through life, love and friendship from middle school through adulthood.

I was hoping for a nostalgic beach read, but I found the story to be very simple and many of the characters were underdeveloped.

This is a rich story of friendship, lies, betrayal & loyalty. Love is the act of commitment & between friends Victoria & Caitlyn a lopsided life-long process. Never having read an adult Judy Blume book, knowing her reputation, I wasn't sure I wanted to read this one. I'm glad I did. It's a funny, poignant story about relationships in the ups & downs of life.

I visited this perfect little bookstore named Books & Books @ The Studios in Key West, Florida. While shopping...
Husband: What are you starting at?
Me: Judy Blume!! She really does work here!! 💙
Such an honor to be in her presence. She was so sweet and kind as she interacted with her coworkers. I‘m way too introverted to speak to her first. 🤭

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled 😮 I need to get back to Key West just to see this! I would be thrilled to just catch a glimpse of her 3y

An emotional read. Its a story centered around Caitlin Sumers, the attention seeking troubled girl, that invites mousey Victoria Leonard to Marthas Vineyard for the summer when they are 12. Its a summer tradition from then on. Its the main stage for the story. It is centered around caitlins actions but is written about Victorias life and how those things shape her life. Friendship is a double edge sword that Judy Blume poetically tells us about.

As the temperatures start to drop, I chose this classic. I‘ve never read this but I‘m flying through it. It‘s making me miss Massachusetts and everything I leave there when I come back to Pennsylvania.

The characters in this book remind me of me and my friend from school. We don‘t see each other often but we have the friendship that is special.

TheBookHippie I just did this on a buddy read with The Blume Saloon podcast. I‘ve never laughed and enjoyed a read so much. I read it when it came out and reading it again was like visiting an old friend. 3y

This book takes you through the ups and downs of two very different girls who, almost by luck, end up becoming best friends.

It really brought me back to those days when my best friend was my whole world. It made me feel a plethora of emotions that are very unique to those childhood years.

The ending was a bit weak, but the rest of the book was pretty fantastic.

STILL TRUE. I usually don‘t mind book to movie adaptations, but this is one book that I want the characters as I see them to stay only in my brain. 😂

Slightly book related but Amanda Palmer released this song on Judy Blume‘s birthday and it‘s absolutely beautiful😊 I read Summer sisters in high school and many times since and it became one of the most important books in my life.

I grabbed Summer Sisters randomly from the library to use as a beach read. Having never been a huge fan of "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret," I didn't have any great expectations for this one. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised! Summer Sisters is a great coming of age book about friendship, love, and finding your place in the world. I loved this book and I loved the characters. Highly recommend!
