I didn't like this one as much as I expected to. It was no Amy and Roger's Epic Detour. I thought this book was looonggg. She started summer vacation in what, May? And it goes all the way through August? What kind of school does she go to? A four month summer break? It was a little distracting. I also rolled my eyes when at the beginning she tried to blow off a summer lake house in the Poconos as not fancy at all. Uh huh.
The whole dragged out affair of what happened that summer five years ago (yes book, I got that it had been FIVE YEARS. Quit repeating yourself) was fairly anti-climatic. I thought she must have done something really bad, and when the reveal came I was like, "that's it? and everyone's still mad? hello, it's been FIVE YEARS." :)
In conclusion, I think this book would have been better if it had been shorter.
