The Summer My Life Began by Shannon Greenland
Amazon / Goodreads
The Summer My Life Began by Shannon Greenland is about Elizabeth Margaret a.k.a. Em.
Em seems to have her life in order, an internship at her father's firm and about to go to Harvard Law. But this isnt what Em wants her life to be, its was her parents want. When a sudden opportunity to spend the summer with an unknown aunt, Em's life takes a sudden twist.
The Summer My Life Began was a very nice quick read. A little predictable for me however the writing was very nice. This is a great coming of age book that will bring you in great spirits. Its a great beach read that does have a few serious moments but sends a perfect message to younger readers. I enjoyed The Summer My Life Began, however there really wasnt much of a "WOW" factor for me. I feel that it needed al little more character to character development.
Overall, I did enjoy and rate 3.5 out of 5 stars.
