Book Review


If you only get a chance to read one book this summer, it should be this one!

One Endless Summer (Release Date: April 20, 2018)

Three best friends.
Three continents.
Three months to live.

How long can you keep a secret?

Three best friends are embarking on an all-expenses paid trip of their dreams. The only catch? Every moment will be documented on film.

Lizzie’s battle with cancer is coming to an end, and now she’s ready to embrace adventure for the very first time. There are only three months, but it is Lizzie’s time to finally start living!

Jaddi is known for her stunning looks, flirtatious attitude and many conquests. But Jaddi has a secret and on this last trip together she needs to decide whether her best friends will ever know the real her.

Samantha has always been the ‘grown up’ of the group, the one with a five year plan. What Lizzie and Jaddi don’t know is that Sam is trapped, and her perfect life isn’t quite what it seems…

As they trek across the globe Lizzie, Jaddi and Samantha must come to terms with loss, love and trusting one another. But will it all be too late…

My Thoughts…

What a beautiful, funny, heart-breaking story! Wow, I just loved it!

You wouldn’t necessarily think that a story about a young woman dying of cancer could be heart-warming and funny and yet One Endless Summer is both of those things. It’s also evocative and tragic, so have those tissues handy.

Lizzie and her two best friends are off to see the world. They have 3 months to soak up as much life as possible as poor Lizzie has spent her 29 years in and out of treatment. Their journey is full of adventure, fun, and loads of tears but there are also secrets too. Secrets that could derail their trip of a lifetime.

Guys, I could not put this down. There I was, bleary eyed and exhausted at 1 AM, praying the 15% left on my Kobo’s battery would last until I finished the last page. Amazingly enough, my husband couldn’t hear me either laughing or crying beside him. I enjoyed this exquisitely written story so much and the end had my jaw on the floor!

I honestly can’t think of a better book to curl up with on your deck, glass of wine in hand and of course, a large box of tissues at your side lol.

Rating… A+ 

Amazon (Psst! It’s a steal right now for under $2!)
