Second Chance Summer Review

I finished Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson about half an hour ago, and in that time I have cried to both my mom and dad about it and called my best friend Victoria telling her she must borrow this book and read it immediately.

Second Chance Summer is about a 17 year old girl named Taylor Edwards. Her whole life, Taylor has been running away (literally) from her problems instead of facing them, but when her and her family learn that her dad is battling a life threatening illness, Taylor can’t run away anymore. Because of the circumstances, the Edwards family decides to spend the upcoming summer together at their cottage in the Poconos. Most kids would be excited to go up to a cottage for the summer, but not Taylor. Having to go up to her family’s cottage means that Taylor has to confront the life she suddenly left behind five years prior, including her former best friend Lucy and first “boyfriend” Henry. When she arrives at her cottage she learns her past friends definitely have not forgotten her or her mistakes. And as her father is getting sicker, Taylor must try to patch up her relationships before time runs out.
