    Three very different young women, still in high school, decide, independently, to share a cabin with another young woman and her grandmother for the month of July in the Adirondack mountains with no cell coverage, no malls, and none of the other advantages of city life. Each told themselves they needed to get away from their lives. None of the three city girls are prepared for what they find in the mountains. For instance, the grandmother decides...

    A charming and empathetic story of friendship and overcoming differences. Four girls share a cabin for a month in the Adirondack mountains - each has her own reasons for wanting to escape to the middle of nowhere and is facing important decisions about her future. Chapters alternate between the girls' perspectives, but their characters are distinctly and deftly drawn, making it easy to keep the various storylines separate. Sweet but not cloying, ...

    Cuuuuutte. So cute that on a day where I planned on reading a ton of books for a sales meeting I read the entirety of this nearly 500-page tome. The characters read a little young but this is just purely sweet. A little bit of a Traveling Pants feel.

    *Review is of an advanced reader copyI have long enjoyed books about summer camp. Much more so than I enjoyed the actual summer camp experience myself. (Because it is awfully nice to have the comfort of my own bed and a non-communal shower with ample hot water.) Girls of July, although not exactly a summer camp story, has the summer camp feel. (How many times will I use the term "summer camp" throughout this review?) The novel is akin to The Sist...

    Thank you to Edelweiss for providing me with an eArc of this book. It has not affected my opinions or my review.Unfortunately, this book is one that fell flat for me. I feel like the storylines of the four girls turned out to be stereotypical and cliche without enough depth to bring them to life, and the story revolved around the messages (too obvious) instead of the characters taking me on a journey to discover them along the way. We had: the ov...

    This book surprised me in so many ways! I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. The characters are all so inspiring and the different plot lines really bring everyone together. I strongly recommend picking this book up. It is a very inspiring summer read.

Spider and her grandmother own the summer cabin. Together, they decide to host three strangers for a few weeks. Spider has a hard time connecting with others because of her painful disease which physically keeps her from doing the same activities as her peers. Getting to know new peo...

    I love books like this, where you have multiple characters and they get a chapter just in their point of view. Meredith and Britta go to the same school, but Meredith is super studious and Britta is more free spirited. When Britta convinces her to go away for a month to New York it’s the perfect escape for Britta, if Meredith can just get on board and stop being stuck in a book. Kate is being shuffled off because her dad is stuck in a scandal a...

    For a more in-depth review watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yj_Mq...2.5 Rating: This book had an interesting premise but Flinn never developed any of the storylines enough to hook you. The book is long and it felt long however there are parts with which some readers may connection especially Spider’s storyline.

    Slow and steady for this book. It took me some time to into the different POVs and getting to know each girl. Once I got a decent way into the story then the plot began to pick up. I enjoyed the story and how bonds were formed over 31 days. I enjoyed getting to know each characters personal life and struggles then watch them overcome them.

    Decent read but nothing to go crazy over. Good filler.Plot had potential, but fell just a tiny bit short. Characters were the same; could have been amazing but just fell flat.

    This was a super cute story following 4 teenage girls as they spend a summer together forming unlikely friendships. They were all so different and real, I enjoyed this book!
