    Set against a vivid backdrop, The Last Summer (of You and Me) is the enchanting story of a beach-community friendship triangle among three young adults for whom summer and this place have meant everything. Sisters Riley and Alice, now in their 20s, have been returning to their parents' modest beach house every summer for their entire lives.

    Overall

    The only reasons for which I've made it halfway through this book are a very long drive and the fact I paid money for it.
    The first 3-1/2 hours contain no plot, nothing to grab you, just a drawn-out, monotonous repetition of two sides of an (immature) post-adolescent crush. At about the 4-hour mark there is a hint that that there might actually be a plot developing. I am compelled to finish it only because I hate to give up on any book, (and because I still have to drive back). I'm writing this review now because regardless of whether the pace picks up, nobody should have to sit through 4 hours of agonizing drivel just to get to where the story (might) actually start to get interesting.
