💫My Review💫

Rating: 5 STARS

Sometimes I'm happy when I make the decision to not read the summary on a book because then I might make the decision not to read it. I started this book with not a clue of what it was about. 

We meet Summer Johnson while she is in the hospital because she is sick; she is told that she probably only has 3 months to live. Her last wish is to have a "normal summer" at the beach. She decides that she wants to be in love in case she doesn't survive the surgery that is planned to hopefully save her life; so she downloads a dating app and meets Cooper Nichols. 

"Because I, Summer Johnson, Purveyor of Pragmatism, Lover of Logic, Ultimate Believer in the Rational, and Person Who Was Maybe Going To Die Soon, wanted to drown in someone."

This love story is beautiful. I loved the way that Cooper just loved Summer for her and didn't care about her scars; inside or out. Summer may not of handled her sickness in the right manner with Cooper but I can understand why she did what she did. I loved that she supported him in his writing and him caring for his mother. 

"I was furious that the world wasn’t broken by a story it had never read – and that was the mark of a good fucking book."

This was a beautiful story and I enjoyed every minute it took me to read it. Everyone should read this story. When an author can put together words and make a reader feel deep down in their heart the love, pain and agony the characters are going through then you know that this is a GREAT book!

Twenty-four-year-old Summer Johnson knows two things. The first is that due to a quickly worsening medical condition, she faces a risky surgery in three months’ time that may or may not end in her death. The second is that she would like to fall in love before then.

As spring sinks into her namesake season on the Florida coastline, Summer plays the odds and downloads a new dating app - and after one intriguing message from a beautiful surfer named Cooper Nichols, it becomes clear that the story of what may be her last few months under the sun is about to be completely revised. All she has to do now is write something worth reading.

Tender, honest, devastating and triumphant, The Summer Remains explores a very human battle being waged in a very digital age: the search for a love that will outlast this temporary borrowing of bones. In an era when many feel compelled to share and re-share anything about everything, prepare to feel a love so special, you will want to hug it close and make it yours forever.
