Goodreads Book Description
Cassidy Emmerich is determined to make this summer—the last before her boyfriend heads off to college—unforgettable. What she doesn’t count on is her boyfriend breaking up with her. Now, instead of being poolside with him, Cass is over a hundred miles away, spending the summer with her estranged father and his family at their bed-and-breakfast at the Jersey Shore and working as the newest counselor at Camp Manatee.
Bryan Lakewood is sick of nevers. You’ll never walk. You’ll never surf. You’ll never slow dance with your date at prom. One miscalculated step and Bryan’s life changed forever—now he’s paralyzed and needs to use a wheelchair. This is the first summer he’s back at his former position at Camp Manatee and ready to reclaim some of his independence, in spite of those who question if he’s up for the job.
Cass is expecting two months dealing with heartbreak.
Bryan is expecting a summer of tough adjustments.
Neither of them is expecting to fall in love.
Why I’m Excited
I’ve read that this book is perfect for lovers of Jenny Han and Morgan Matson, so YES PLEASE! I’m over the cold of the winter and the raininess of the (sort of) spring that we’ve had in the northeast, so I’m looking for a book to get me in the mood for summer. The beachy setting and the summer romance in The Season of You & Me seem to be exactly what I need to get into the summer state of mind. I also like the not so perfect situation that this love story offers, and I hope that it brings just enough struggle to make the story a little bit different and not so “perfect”. I’m also in love with the fact that the characters are going to be working at a camp called Camp Manatee, because (1) manatees are awesome and one of my favorite animals and (2) I hope that working at a camp brings lots of laughs and funny situations into the story.
