Review: The Summer My Life Began by Shannon Greenland
The Summer My Life Began by Shannon Greenland
Published: May 2012
The Story: A great summer beach read filled with sunshine, cooking, and--of course--romance!
Elizabeth Margaret--better known as Em--has always known what her life would contain: an internship at her father's firm, a degree from Harvard, and a career as a lawyer. The only problem is, it's not what she wants. So when she gets the opportunity to get away and spend a month with the aunt she never knew, she jumps at the chance. While there, Em learns that her family has some pretty significant secrets. And then there's Cade, the laid-back local surfer boy who seems to be everything Em isn't. Naturally, she can't resist him, and as their romance blossoms, Em feels that for the first time ever, she is really living life on her own terms.
My Review: This was a fun book to read! Em finds out the skeleton in the closets of her family. But it gives her the best opportunity to pursue what she wants to do. Shannon Greenland has written a fun and light hearted book, with some underlying themes. I was not bored with this one! It felt like I was there with Em and her family. This is a really good book for a nice summer read!
