5 soul searching Stars 

I didn't want to read this book. By the synopsis alone I knew it was either going to make or break me and it's the uncertainty of that I had a fear of. 

I know you might think 'thats a bit dramatic, its just a book', but books for me are something I like to get lost in. With this, I didn't get lost, I drowned in it. I simply can't stop thinking about it. 

We are taken on a journey with Summer Johnson, a young girl who was born with Esophageal Intresia, something I can barely spell, let alone heard of before. The details that went into this book were quite phenomenal and I got a real sense that the author was extremely knowledgeable of the subjects within it.

Summer is to undergo life threatening surgery and her one wish, during that summer, before she puts her life in the hands of the surgeon, is to find love. Summer at first glance came across as quite negative, although you certainly couldn't hold that against her. She poked fun at the social media world, yet deep down I felt her burning need for acceptance, which we're all so accustomed to, so what actually transpires for me, is a girl who has a complete understanding of what is happening within today's world, who for all intents and purposes doesn't make a huge deal about her affliction. She loves the simple things in life and for that she has truly made me love her and think about life in general. 

This leads me onto Cooper Nichols. He is perfection, there's no two ways about it. I defy anyone to not fall in love with him. Not only is he extremely good looking, but his heart and soul is what truly makes him amazing. I fell in love with him from the start. 

I'm so glad i took a chance with this book and honoured I've been given the opportunity to read it. It was so beautifully written and heartbreaking and in a way soul cleansing that I do believe summer really does remain.

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.

Wow, just wow. I read a lot but this is going up there as one of the best books of 2015 and i am writing this review at the beginning of March and i know deep within my heart i will not change my thoughts on this book. From the beginning it was a story that grabbed you by the shoulders and did not let you go. Though we know Summer is very unwell i could not help but laugh and agree with her.Her thoughts they are so refreshing - save the wishes for kids that want a trip to Disney land. Summer wants love something we all want to experience in life. This is not the usual type of book i read, but oh my i am glad i did. It gives you a new way to look at life you open your eyes and see things differently. This book broke my heart in a really good way i was so emotionally involved in the entire book, and even though it broke my heart, it mended it with the beautiful and tragic story of Summer and Cooper. Now lets talk about Cooper, when Summer meets him, Summer and the reader instantly know there is something different about him even via a dating app and his messages then when we get to meet him in person yep your heart is stolen by Cooper and his infectious sense of humour and his nature. This book like i have mentioned is beautiful and tragic but it is full of joy as well - a book for all seasons and people. Seth King has a writing talent i have not seen in a long time, his style of writing is fresh and fearless he writes as if he has experienced the highest of highs in life and the lowest of lows and he pours it all into his work. I will most certainly be one-clicking any and all of his future work that is released. Read this book now everyone you will fall in love with it as much as i have i am certain.
