Review of All Last Summer by Stephanie J Scott

 Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan.

My summer was planned from packing lists to trip itineraries. Or so I’d thought.

It’s the night before my trip abroad, and my boyfriend Matt showed up at a party with another girl. The boyfriend I’m supposed to spend seven weeks with in Brazil.

No way can I board that plane.

With my trip tickets ripped up and the money down the drain, I owe my parents big-time. The only job hiring is Teed Off!, the driving range that just-so-happens to employ Matt’s trio of best friends.

Matt’s friends don’t like my presence on their artificial turf, so pranking me becomes their second part-time job. They definitely don’t want me winning the bonus money our boss is offering for an idea to improve the business.

By chance on a summer night, Matt’s head crony best friend Aidan is there for me when no one else is around. Turns out, he and Matt haven’t been close for a while. Aidan begins to see through to the real me—the me I’d kept from Matt to be the person I’ve always longed to be—popular with a boyfriend, all according to plan.

As the summer unfolds, our secrets unravel.

My Review: 5 STARS

I picked this up looking for a sweet summer romance, and I adored it from the first page. Lila was relatable, and made you want to follow along with her journey of somewhat self-discovery. Going from being the girl she thinks she has to be to have friends, to being the girl she actually is. I loved the story, the twists, the turns, the highs, the lows, and of course, the ending was perfect. I adored Lila and the other characters and loved how things turned out with Matt and Adian. This is a new author to me, but one that I would read again, highly recommended for a summer romance book!
