In Shannon Klare's fun and sexy YA novel Last Chance Summer, a teen is shipped off to work as a counselor at a summer camp—only to butt heads with her co-counselor.
Alex is a sheriff's daughter with a less than pristine reputation. When she's caught drinking at a party by her dad’s deputy, she’s in deep trouble. With an already incriminating incident in her past, Alex’s parents ship her off to her aunt’s summer camp to work as a counselor—lest she spend her senior year at boarding school.
What's worse than spending your summer deep in the mosquito-infested woods of Texas?
Being paired with an obnoxious co-counselor who wants nothing to do with you.
Alex is determined to make the best of her summer, even if it means putting up with Grant, who has secrets of his own that he's determined to protect. Can Alex and Grant put their egos to the side and find the bright side of a summer that neither of them signed up for?
It feels like a million years ago that I discovered Shannon Klare on Wattpad and absolutely fell in love with her writing.
Last Chance Summer has snark, angst, and a lot of growth. These characters have all the walls around them when this story starts but one of the best parts of this journey was watching the walls come crumbling down.
I couldn't put this book down. I was so connected to the story that I didn't want it to end but I also wanted to savor it. SK has a way of drawing you in to the world that she's created that makes you want to visit over and over again. I can't wait to see what comes next.
It was just okay
Not to sound mean but this book was not what I expected. It honestly wasn’t worth the price. I didn’t like the storyline between Alex and her cabin girls. It left me feeling like I missed a part where they grew together or maybe they didn’t. It seemed like the book was rushed.
