Five Summers

Una LaMarche

Funny and achingly honest, Five Summers is a story of best friends, lasting love, and campfire s'mores. ‘Capturing the campfire glow of adolescent summers spent in cabins, in the woods, and on the lake, the sweet rewards in LaMarche’s debut novel are the moments that reveal the beauty of true friendships that have everlasting promise.’ Booklist ‘Readers who love Anne Brashares’s Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series will enjoy this.’ School Library Journal
