My review for The Last Summer:
I give The Last Summer 3.5 stars. It is hard to get into, but after a few chapters it picks up a bit. The story takes place in the 21st century in Fire Island, NY, and also in New York City. The main characters’ names are Alice, Riley and Paul. Alice and Riley are sisters in their twenties and Paul, who is also in his twenties, have grown up together at their beach houses. Alice and Paul figure out that they have feelings for each other, but try to hide it because they don’t want to make it seem like the both of them are betraying Riley. Paul inherited his family’s beach house and has to decide whether to keep or not. Will he keep the house or sell it? When Riley was 3, she had been sick and caused some damage to her health. During the summer, Riley becomes sick again, but she takes a turn for the worse. What is her illness? Is it fatal or will it become more difficult to live with? Alice won’t tell Paul because it’s not in her place to tell him so things go down badly by the end of the summer. Will things work out or will their friendship be ruined?

I would suggest this book for anyone 17 or up.
