Summer of Secrets by: Paul Langan

I liked this book a lot because it was really interesting. This book is about a teenage girl named Darcy Wills who was having so many problems in her life. One problem was a boy from school, named Brian, who attacked her. This made her so afraid of boys she didn’t want them near her.

At home she was having problems because her parents were always fighting and arguing. Darcy needed help and needed to talk to someone but there was no one around. The people she loved the most were gone, like her Grandma who had died from a stroke and her ex-boyfriend who went to Detroit. Later on in the story, Darcy was unable to deny the painful truth she had tried to hide.

Darcy turns to her remaining friends only to discover one of them was hiding an even bigger secret. So from there on Darcy had to stand up for herself and her friend. In the end the secrets are discovered. I think other students will like this book because it’s really interesting plus you learn things from this book. I recommend this book to anyone who likes books about teenage difficulties. This book keeps you entertained to the point where you can’t stop reading it because you want to know what will happen next.
