Review: I loved The Lost Summer. I was pulled into the story, the characters, the plot from the beginning. I actually read this whole book in one sitting. I couldn't put it down no matter what. Helena was a unique character but yet she was like every other teenage girl with a crush that never went away. I was so surprised when it turned out that Ransome had feelings for Helena too. It was really cute and special how their relationship and feelings for each other began to develop more and deepen. The ending that Kathryn Williams wrote was so surprising. I never thought that The Lost Summer would end that way. I found myself crying as I read it. It was so heart-felt and touching. I really don't know any words to describe it right now. It was simply amazing. Every single part. I loved it. There is no way I will ever not read this book again. It's in my top 5 now. Amazing.
