Review: While I really love Alyson Noel, I didn't think that Cruel Summer was her best work. I think that it was a well written novel, but it didn't really capture me as much as others. Colby was a very interesting character. Her world was very complex and she did have some problems to deal with. I think that she did find herself in a very nice way. It was fun to see her world play out. I'm not that sure how to describe this novel by Alyson Noel. I think that this book is mostly for people who like to read more then the people who just wait for the right book for them.
