Summary

From the author of Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, a powerful novel about hope in the face of heartbreak.
Taylor Edwards’ family might not be the closest-knit - everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled - but for the most part, they get along just fine.
Then Taylor’s dad gets devastating news, and her parents decide that the family will spend one last summer all together at their old lake house in the Pocono Mountains. Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven’t actually gone anywhere. Her former best friend is still around, as is her first boyfriend…and he’s much cuter at 17 than he was at 12.
As the summer progresses and the Edwards become more of a family, they’re more aware than ever that they’re battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance - with family, with friends, and with love.

it helps me better understand teenage girls

What did you love best about Second Chance Summer?

the author describes very well the inner feeling of a teenager .

What was one of the most memorable moments of Second Chance Summer?

The description of the evening before the Taylor's father dies.

What about Brittany Pressley’s performance did you like?

the way she describes the complexity of the characters' psyche.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Of course it made me cry (in spite of the fact that, being a tough guy, I pretend I never cry :) )
