that summer review

“Does that mean you’ll come with me?” “That means I’ll go anywhere with you, Dani.”

Devaney (Dani) Diamond is totally not thrilled about spending her summer with her family in the Ozarks. This trip could’t have come at a worse time. Her longtime crush, Hunter, is finally interested and their relationship is just getting started when the Diamond-Mackenzie Summer Camp vacation is announced. On the bright side, she can work on her tan and hang with her BFF, Chase. Chase Mackenzie has been Dani’s best friend her whole life. He is the sweetest, most thoughtful boy she has ever known. Hello! Chase has grown up. He’s gone from cute boy Dani knows and loves- to something else. He’s levelheaded, and he acts older than his age, and he’s cool under pressure. So far, Hunter is not exactly batting a thousand. More like he keeps striking out. Will this be that summer that changed everything between Dani and Chase?
