In The Summer I Gave Up Boys, it’s finally the best time of the year (summer, duh!). Kaliyah goes back to her hometown which is where all the fun starts. She meets old friends, an annoying old ex-boyfriend, and new flames flashing in every corner.
The characters in The Summer I Gave Up Boys was the most likeable part of the entire novella. They were mature and likeable, they had their quirks, but most importantly, they weren’t weak characters! Kaliyah’s an independent person, she has her two friends that she can confide in, and yet among all that, she’s very outgoing. She was a person who stood her ground. Whilst Kaliyah, as well as some of the other characters, had her flaws, it wasn’t anything major that couldn’t be looked past. Kaliyah’s temper is very vibrant, causing her to become an internet sensation over night. Good job, Kaliyah!
Kaliyah’s two best friends were Amanda and Kristen. I’ve tried to figure out how to explain who they were and what kind of characters they were, but there’s a lack of words from my part. Not because they were bad, because that’s not it. One friend is a super-supportive person who’s got Kaliyah back no matter what, whereas the other is very blunt and will tell her the truth straight to her face without much thought. The latter one is especially funny at one part, but I’ll let you read the novella to figure out which one I’m talking about!
Isaiah Winters is a guy we meet fairly quickly. He’s the typical jock who has a more creative side of him. Isaiah going from crushing on Kaliyah for a very long time, to meeting her time after time that particular summer seemed like fate to Isaiah, causing him to finally man up and try to make a move. This doesn’t go all too well because the two.. well, they seemingly hate each other. Oh, poor guy. I have to admit I pitied him. Well, I pitied both of them.
Although The Summer I Gave Up Boys had its fair share of awesome characters, Kassandra Kush didn’t fail in creating ones that were annoying, frustrating and overall stupid ones. Although I had enough with Kaliyah’s idiotic ex-boyfriend and some of the major brainless girls, they did serve as great supporting characters. As I’m typing this, I’m reminded of the ounces of drama that occurred. I’ve now come to the conclusion that although there was drama at some parts, it wasn’t overly done to the point where it loses its credibility.
This novella isn’t anything special, to put it that way. The novella is written well and its plot moves in a perfectly calm way. Despite is being a mere “novella”, it’s still a written piece of art that is highly enjoyable; regardless whether you’re a hopeless romantic! And it all gets a lot better when you realise that there’s a second novella with Isaiah’s side of the story..
