Taylor Edwards is going away with her family for the summer - to the summer home they used to use each year, until life got too busy and she and her brother and sister had too many other summer plans for their family to get away. But this summer is different. Taylor's dad is dying, and he wants to spend one last summer together.
Now, in an old familiar place, Taylor needs to confront what happened five years ago with her best friend who still happens to be around - and who Taylor spends a lot of time with since the two work at the same beach stand.
Although life doesn't always end up "happily ever after" Taylor and her family do eventually really talk and Taylor finally starts to resolve her problems without running away.
I liked this story. It's a perfect summer read, and even though Taylor's father's sickness isn't a happy story, the book is realistic and gives the feeling of reality.
