Book ↠ Cruel Summer Æ 229 pages Ñ Johnscyclingdiary Ý ✅ [PDF / Epub] ☉ Cruel Summer By Alyson Noel ⚣ – This was supposed to be my best summer yet the one I've been working toward since practically forever Now I'm being banished from everything I know and loG hot season of parties beach BB's and hopefully hook ups with Levi Bonham the hottest guy in school But her world comes crashing down when her parents send her away to spend the summer in Greece with her crazy aunt TallyStranded on a boring island with no malls no cell phone reception and an aunt who talks to he First of all this is a beautiful simple cover featuring the stark tranuility of the sky and great body language of the models It jumped out at me from the shelves of my book store despite someone obviously already having read it grrrr I hadn't heard of Alyson Noel before I read this last night and I haven't seen her books on the shelves here in Adelaide Australia but I will be seeking her out from now on What I loved about this book was the very fluid chatty writing style that flowed throughout It may be a casual style but don't assume there's no substance We are able to access Colby's thoughts through letters blog entries texts and diary entries and I found myself laughing and joyfully turning page after page I particularly loved it when one piece of correspondance contradicted another as I felt that is was very true to the protagonist Colby suffers and she explains her suffering at length But she does it in such a whiney bratty and remarkably unconscious way that it paves the way for actual organic character development Our heroine may dump her best friend hook up with a shallow loser break some rules and make really bad decisions but we don't hate her because of it Why Because Noel sprinkles comments about her homelife that make it truly impossible not to wish happiness for her Divorce is pretty common these days and Colby's parents choose the road most travelled in their management of it By that I meanjust plain mean to each other and periodically Colby I loved the flippancy and liveliness of this character she possesses that classic impetuousness and enthusiam that you love to death in a person but which also drives you up the wall I loved the minor characters Natalie though we never witness any actual interaction with one another than some emails from Colby is my fave She is a true friend and someone that Colby eventually sees the value in I have a real soft spot for Tally Tassos and the beligerant Petros Yannis sounds divine but I could take or leave him the real story here is Colby and her striving unconsciously to be a better person Alyson Noel I think I adore thee
