The Summer Remains by Seth King
4.5 stars!!

“…sometimes you just gotta jump, and then make your parachute on the way down.”

Well, anyone that follows me knows that I love a tear jerker and this one succeeded on very many levels. Wow, this was one emotional book, yet so uplifting all the same. There are many messages contained within these pages, messages that will make you look at life differently, look at yourself differently and look at others differently. Life is what you make it and there is always that special someone for everyone, no matter when you meet or how long you have together, their presence will stay with you forever, just like this book will stay with me forever.

“Hi. My name is Cooper Nichols, and I am absolutely swimming in love with a girl named Summer Johnson.”

Seth King can write, I am still dumbfounded that this was written by a twenty-five year old, the writing is so mature yet youth shines through, the writing is moving and captivating, yet humorous and funny, in short, this book was perfectly balanced. I highlighted so much of this book, haunting yet beautiful words that together made me melt, swoon, cry, laugh and every other possible conceivable emotion in between. In short, it was just amazingly poetic.

Summer is broken on the inside and the outside, yet she doesn’t let her health and her scars alter her lust for life. Even though she has lived a really sheltered life through health and over protective parents, she hasn’t lost her snark and her sass or lost that beautiful person underneath. Like any girl her age she wants to experience life, she wants to make the most of the hand that life dealt her and the one thing that she feels she has missed the most is love.

Ok I just want to say that the end of this book broke my heart. That being said I wasn't sure I liked it at the beginning. I felt the book was very philosophical and Summer's thoughts were extremely deep. At times I felt a little too inept to be reading such heavily loaded words. I felt they went over my head. I thought I was going to end up being 'that girl' who didn't enjoy the popular book. All the reviews are so heart felt and moving and at first I just wasn't 'getting' it. However, I'm soooo pleased I continued.
The love that is written in this book is so real. The descriptions of such a beautiful connection between Summer and Cooper, I've experienced them, I continue to experience them, I can relate. And Cooper, what an absolute dream x The sorrow, grief, happiness, joy, beauty, frustration, just all of it, was written with truth and honesty and immensity of feeling. I began highlighting quotes all over this book. I even made a few teasers as I felt compelled to put images to the words I was soaking up.
As I've mentioned, the ending broke my heart. I read until 2:30am finishing up and was torn apart. I was holding out for a different outcome as I'm sure most were, yet the ending again was the making of this book. It definitely deserves all the five stars I'm giving it, and then some. This book just made me feel... good, bad and ugly throughout. Although it was hard going, I loved this book.

What did I think of this book?! Oh god. It was emotional. And heartbreaking. And beautiful. It was a love story at its best. And what I loved about it the most is that I didn't focus on the sad parts, it's about Summer and Cooper. How they feel about each other and the amazing relationship and bond they created. I think I had a feeling how this was going to go, mostly by what others were saying about it. But I knew that wouldn't be how the book was defined. And I was right. Am I sad? Yep. But that's not what I'm remembering. I'm remembering these two amazing characters. I cried for the last 20% or so then even more when I read Seths words at the end. I then realised this book totally came from the heart. Thank you Seth for giving us this personal and awesome story 😊

This is the type of story that when you finish reading it makes you want to be a better person for the people around you. The story of Summer and Cooper is awe-inspiring. They have that instant connection. She is not well, she has a debilitating illness since day 1, he is the perfect boyfriend but also has some ongoing issues/baggage. They are not perfect, they have their moments but when they get together they make each other whole. There are times when I am glad that I don't go blind and jump into every book I read, if I did this story would have done my heart in. Actually it did, but I braced myself and pulled up my big girl knickers. My eyes didn't leak, no snot nor tears here, nope. I didn't cry when I watched The Notebook. But if this book was made into a movie this is the one that will probably make me sit in the dark holding a bucket of popcorn, shoving it in my mouth, eyes glued to the screen, snot and tears running down my face whilst stifling a sob. Yes, this book is fantastically good. I am so glad my friends told me about it and I highly recommend it too. Worthy of 10 stars really!

The Summer Remains is proof that you can be an avid reader and believe you have found the perfect read, only then to be thrown from your proverbial thousand book shelf and shown that it only takes one to change you. Seth King has not only written a breathtaking and deeply profound love story, but he has set a precedent that very few will ever reach.

If I'm honest, I wasn't sure about this book at first. I found the sentences long and somewhat ramblish, the dialogue was excessive at times and I felt myself pushing away from a story that I knew was going to likely depress me in ways that I wasn't ready to acknowledge, but then I realised that I was looking at this in the wrong way. I am that Facebook freak! I am the girl with the pretty ring and the house in the country, and all those things that Summer despised, but what made Summer unique. Her outlook on life may have been jaded and forlorn due to her disability, and her last wish to fall in love may even have been cliche and selfish to others, I just couldn't deny the bigger picture here...
This is a story about us.
Life.
The fault of man and our twisted coping mechanisms when it comes to all things 'different.'

This isn't just a love story that spans three months over one Floridian summer, but a real eye opening, thought-provoking tale of what it must feel like to be swimming against a tide, when the one to pull you from the depths is the one you are destined to destroy. But I couldn't blame our heroine for any of it, because I was so proud of her for taking that final leap.

Cooper, our hero is no stranger to strife, this is where he really comes into his own. He seemed older than his peers, a little mysterious in his ways, and a true book hero in every sense of the word.
