A good summer read with a focus on teenage years

Surfside Sisters: A Novel

By: Nancy Thayer

Rating: 4 of 5

This is a story about two childhood friends. Keeley and Isabelle. Keeley was middle class and Isabelle was from a rich family. The two things they had in common was that they lived in the same Nantucket town and they both wanted to be famous writers when they grew up.

Their common interest kept them together until a romantic interest tore them apart. At that point, the lives moved apart rapidly and for what seemed like forever.

Keely managed to make her dream come true and is a famous author. When events in her life turn her in circles, she retreats back to Nantucket to help her mother.

The two ex-friends come in contact again and the story of how the deal with the issues that then them apart is the story of this book.

In some ways, the book is more of a YA novel as so much of it is centered on the younger years of the two individuals. Still, it was a good read and one that was enjoyable as a summer book.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
