Second Chance Summer is the book for anyone who wants to read a sad, romantic novel. This is truly a great book and I just want to read more.

Then, I read two books in a row that made me sob. The first was Waiting by Carol Lynch William. I sobbed through the last 30 pages of this book. But it was the sobbing that comes from just reading a really good story and being a satisfied reader as you close the back cover. Taylor Edwards family sets out to spend one last summer with their father who has been given 3 months to live; maybe less and maybe more, but basically 3 months. From the outset, it looks like this will be the worst summer ever. But summers always have a way of surprising you. Taylor is a runner. No, not an athlete. She runs away when things get hard. She runs away from herself, her emotions. But this time, there is no running away. Sure, she tries. But sometimes in life all you can do is hunker down and face the music. Second Chance Summer is about facing the music and allowing it to change you.

So often the strong heroines are the ones fighting dragons and bad guys but, after going through this, I view strength in a whole different way — the strength to get through something like this, the strength of family and the strength of the person who is looking cancer or any adversity right in its ugly face.

I want to thank you for a beautiful story about watching someone you love die because it was one of the hardest most defining moments in my life. I wish I would have had this years ago to read.

I want to thank you for doing it with care. I want to thank you for not just making this a story about a girl who is losing her dad but about life and love and family and friendship that still happens during that process.

I genuinely loved Taylor and her family. I loved Henry and Lucy. And Murphy. And really all of the characters to be honest. Everyone seemed real and important. So thank you. Thanks for writing amazing books. Thanks for writing characters I can truly relate to.

Review: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

Thank you for making me smile, for swooning, for making reflect and for making me remember to keep living. Thank you for not simplifying it but keeping the story and the dynamics of a sick parent as complex as they really are.

Thanks for writing characters I can truly relate to. Thank you for making me smile, for swooning, for making reflect and for making me remember to keep living.

Thank you for not simplifying it but keeping the story and the dynamics of a sick parent as complex as they really are. Thank you for not having a romance be the only thing to get Taylor through this and showing the importance of family and friends.

Everything had changed.

Or, more accurately, everything was going to change. But nothing had really changed yet. And it made the condolences odd—as if people were saying how sorry they were that my house had burned down when it was still intact but with an ember smoking nearby, waiting.

I could see the pity in her eyes, but also the fear—that slight distancing, because if something like this was happening to my family, it could happen to hers.

I continued in the opposite direction, but my escape no longer felt like it was going to make things better. What was the point of trying to run away if people were going to insist on reminding you of what you were running from?

Review: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson – Fiction and Tea

I had started walking down the street, mostly just wondering how long it would take for someone to realize I was even gone. I was soon found and brought home, of course, but that had begun the pattern, and running away became my preferred method of dealing with anything that upset me. It got to be such a routine that when I used to announce from the doorway, tearfully, that I was leaving home forever and ever, my mother would just nod, barely looking at me, telling me only to make sure to be back in time for dinner.

My father was behind the wheel of his low-slung silver car, smiling at me. My dad looked across at me and raised his eyebrows. Since the deli was packed, I hung back and let him order.

As my eyes roamed over the shop, I noticed Amy Curry standing toward the front of the line, holding hands with a tall, cute guy wearing a Colorado College T-shirt. When my dad made it to the front of the line, I watched him rattling off our order, saying something that made the counter guy laugh.

He was a little thinner, his skin tone just slightly yellow. But I was trying not to see this as I watched him drop some change into the tip jar.
