    1.

    2. I finished reading the book.It teaches honesty!The highlighted part in here is that "you don't have to formulate lies (white lies or not) just to get someone's attention or just to be loved by others".One must be loved by someone for who she really is and not because of what she is and of what she has.It also introduces forgiveness and that it's never too late to realize your mistake."right the wrong, tis all"


    3. This was a sweet young adult novel. This is Garwood's first novel and it feels a bit dated. I still enjoyed it, however.There is a romantic thread that rubs through the books, but the story is really about Summer's journey in finding herself.


    4. Cute tween young adult that should appeal to the middle grade crowd. Because it was written in the 80's, it feels dated, but teaches a moral about not lying and believing in yourself.Also the love interest, aka hot teen boy is sweet and a gentleman. He made my heart flutter.


    5. This is a delightful YA story from an established author. I'd definetly recommend it to any young girl. Besides being a beautiful story, it teaches not to lie.


    6. I was addicted to this book, but at the same time it was so dumb and fast moving. I read it as a joke, and it was a joke in my mind.



    7. Fue divertido. Todo ese drama juvenil me exasperó un poco, pero es tan tonto que lo lees de todas formas. La verdad, la idea de un romance de verano como este me gusta, no sé si éstos dos duraran forever after, pero la idea del primer amor siempre causa ternura, por lo tontos y torpes que solemos ser.





    8. As seen on Ed and Em's Reviews!3.5 StarsThis book was so sweet! I've never read a book by Julie Garwood before, so I think it is fitting that I started by reading one of her first books.A Girl Named Summer is about a girl… named Summer. Summer and her best friend, Regina, had plans for the summer. Plans that were ruined when Summer's parents ask her to take care of her brother, Michael, and grandfather. Things look up when Summer meets David, Michael's swim teacher. David makes her happy and a [...]


    9. This was one of Garwood's first books and it is a YA book. I definitely notice some differences between the books I've read recently from her and this one, but it's mostly hard to compare since the genres are so different.This one was about a young girl named Summer who is edging her way into the dating world. She is just hanging out with her grandfather when a boy named David asks her out. She goes out with him a few times and somehow he gets trapped into hanging out with another girl named Ann [...]


    10. The story of Summer, she is a fifteen year-old girl having the struggles of her age, thinking boys and being beautiful are the most important missions in her life. The boy she liked named David and we absolutely know nothing about him, except for he has a grandfather, he is a senior year student, he is a swimming teacher and he likes running. Both characters are quite adorable to the point of being cheesy. I did not find the plot or the characters deep enough to make this one something other tha [...]


    11. Novel ini diterbitkan Dastan kalau aku gak salah. Dan aku baru tahu kalau ternyata Julie Garwood (JG) menulis tentang cerita cinta remaja. Kalau di Indonesia mungkin sebutannya teenlit.Ceritanya sederhana dan umum sih. Tentang remaja perempuan yang jatuh cinta. Yang namanya jatuh cinta, kita akan berusaha menyelami hobi oleh orang yang kita sukai. Kebetulan David ini suka lari, jadilah si Summer bilang dia juga lari, terus diajak ikutan lomba lari. Kalang kabut deh si Summer dan berusaha latihan [...]


    12. This novella was a perfectly fine YA romance, but I don't understand why Julie Garwood was motivated to write it. It is quite a departure from her regular work. I generally really enjoy all of Ms. Garwood's work and as I said, this was a nice romance story, but I had a hard time placing the time it was set in. It read like an early 1960's type story and I was expecting some kind of "Oh-weren't-we-cute-as-kids" wrap up at the end by senior citizen versions of Summer and David, but was disappointe [...]


    13. This sounds like a good read, and I've always loved Julie Garwood's novels. But this one, originally published back in 1986, is not the caliber of novel I've come to expect from Garwood. The main character, Summer, is a likeable high school student with a crush. She'll do everything--including exaggerate the truth--to have the boy, David, like her in return. We've all been there. From that aspect, this is a very relateable story. However, there was really no substance to it. When it ended, I jus [...]


    14. Fifteen-year-old Summer Matthews spends every Monday night at the bingo parlor serving refreshments while her grandfather tried to win big. However, on her first night during summer vacation, David Marshall arrives and steals her heart. A jock from a nearby prep school, he knows nothing about Summer so she finds it easy to lie to him when she asks if she's interesting in running. Her lies catch up to her when he enters them in a charity marathon being organized by one of the snottiest girls at S [...]


    15. A story about loving yourself before you get in a relationship. To be true to everyone around you and to always tell the truth. What a great story to live by!It was the most positive, genuine book I have read. It's about being true to yourself and loving yourself first! I recommend it for the younger crowd before they enter into relationships.


    16. Now I know exactly what teenager girls are reading, and I am scared to have teenagers. I am just kidding. This was what I assume is a normal girl’s life that seemed more to me like gossip heard in third period English than a real story. I can imagine how a girl would get excited about it, reading about the dreamy David. It has on overwhelmingly typical feel-good book ending. The girl gets the guy and wins the race. What more could you ask for. It is an incredibly fast read, and now I will be a [...]


    17. This book is really dated and has not held up well in the 25 or so years since it was originally published. Summer is a very boring and one-dimensional protagonist, who is the type with soap bubbles inside of her head. I didn't get anything deep from this book and the fact that she felt the need to lie to David to be more interesting was pathetic, even for a 15 year old girl. It never works out well when you lie about who you are. Not the book for me by any means.


    18. A quick read and a good transition to reading another serious story. This is my first Garwood book and based on my readings, this is her only YA novel.I love the name Summer as it literally brings a breezy feeling. It has all the elements that attracts teenssweet, puppy love. But i like the part where she runsThis also teaches us to be honest and forgiving. Summer's problem here is so minute but for a young girl at 15, this is like the end of the world.


    19. I don't really like this book even though I'm a fan of Ms. Garwood. I expected much from it but I was disappointed. I think the story is too light and cliche. Well, I have nothing against cliche-ness, because even though it's cliche, but if the story is good, then it's good. Maybe it's because I don't find anything special here. Just my preferences, though.


    20. And they all go crazy if they find any holes in anything--especially in underwear. Heaven forbid if I was in accident and had on anything with holes in it. p.123.Gue pikir cuman emak gue yang begitu. ternyata semua emak di mana aja sama yak XD.


    21. I read this back when I was in middle school. It's probably the book that started my crazy reading addiction that I now have seven years later. :)Sweet, cute, fun, innocent. This book offers it all.


    22. A book I've had since the 6th grade. I just re-read it. It's cute for a tween book. It teaches honesty and what jealousy is. It was an easy quick read. Summer is the definition of a family oriented, goal driven young lady.


    23. I thought Julie Garwood and teenlit can't be put in one shelf, but yes, she proved it by this funny, light-hearted story about teenagers' love. Oh well, it's not as shallow as I thought about teenlit, but this story is soooo cute that i got my heart fluttered ><


    24. Summer je pätnásťročná dievčina a krátky román je o tom, ako sa zamiluje a kvôli láske stvára hlúposti, pravdaže za výdatnej asistencie jej najlepšej priateľky Reginy. Zvyšok recenzie nájdete tu: kokina1/2013/04/di
