Year 7, Book 76

76. Summerland by Elin Hilderbrand
Summerland takes place on Nantucket and is about the community of people who live there year round. The story is told through the viewpoints of various characters including the residents of the island as a collective. On the night of the island’s high school graduation four juniors are involved in a car accident that leaves one of them dead and her twin brother fighting for his life. The story revolves around how the accident affects the surviving teens in the accident, their parents, and the island community itself, while leading up to the revelation of why the driver of the car seemingly caused the accident on purpose. It as a fairly enjoyable book. Though many of the characters were hard to like they mostly felt human and relatable. I give it a 7 out of 10.
