Cruel Summer by Alyson Noel

Summary: After dumping her dorky image, and her best friend that went with it, Colby Cacendish is looking forward to a summer filled with tons of parties, BBQs, trips to the beach, and more future hookups with the hottest guy in school, Levi Bonham.

Colby's world soon comes crashing down.

Her parent's decided to send her away for the summer to Greece with her aunt Tally, which her parent's always called crazy.

While on the island, Colby worries that her new friends have forgotten her.

She has no mall, no cell-phone reception, and an aunt who talks to her plants.

But when Colby meets Yannis, a cute Greek local, her whole summer changes directions.

Colby soon discovers the difference between a summer fling and a real relationship.

It forces her to look inside of herself and try to find herself, in a new way.

Rating: 3 1/2 Stars

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.

I was gonna give up too, but I really don't like getting half-way through a book and not finishing it.

I think you should try again. :]
