After reading Judy Blundell's YA novel, What I Saw and How I Lied, I was eager to read her new novel for adults, The High Season. So I was very happy to win a copy from Bookish First.
The High Season is a good summer read in part because it takes place during the summer and the season really plays a role in the plot. While the main story focuses on Ruthie and the drama surrounding the rental of her family's home, there is a large cast of characters with intersecting story lines.
I really liked how the book is broken up into sections based on the holiday, starting on Memorial Day and going through Labor Day then picking up on Independence Day the next year. I, also, liked how text messages were used for the younger characters.
While I wish the ending had more resolution, this is definitely a book I would recommend for summer reading.
