The thing that she doesn't know is that she isn't the only one who is keeping secrets.
I laughed, I cried, I got angry and I was hurt, I felt as if I was on an emotional roller coaster in a fantastic way. Few books make me feel this way, When Summer Comes was an amazing story honestly if I could compare this book to any other book out there it would probably be The Notebook or A Walk to Remember. The reason I loved this book was because of their relationship. Especially her friends Baxter he was the one who made me smile the most, it was as if he lit up the place whenever he showed up. He's the friend I wish I had, he made me so darn happy.
Levi is such a hunk, but other than being this gorgeous guy he is such a strong, caring, loving guy who is going through so much pain and regret that he refuses to let go of. In the beginning he is portrayed as this closed off, quiet, shy, mysterious guy but as the book goes on and he starts opening up you start to figure out why he is closed off and his reason for not being able to love without having to feel guilt. Although Callie was scared of letting him in at first she learned that not everyone is a bad person, even when she found out things about him she decided not to pressure him into telling her every thing. So I liked that about their relationship cause she trusted him,
Really enjoyed it and loved it! Its another ConRom I wish was made into a movie! 5/5 stars
