99 Days by Katie Cotugno

 

99 days of summer vacation… that sounds a little like Phineas and Ferb *breaks into song*

Putting the whole cheating/betraying elephant-in-the-room aside,  I really liked this book. Real, raw,  honest and fun. I devoured it so quickly that it took me a while to realise there was no more. It was over. But it has such a pretty cover and will look good on my shelf *fangirls the cover*. That sounds a little shallow – but it is true!

Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.  — Abstract from Goodreads.com

  1. Cheating is a hard thing to get over for some people. I don’t care as long as the characters end up happy and who they should be with. I haven’t read this one yet. I totally agree that the cover is awesome.

  2. This sounds like a really fun and realistic read. 🙂 I’m definitely going to have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous review! <3
