My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Summer of change reminded me of the song summer of ’69. Even though it is set in 1973, the story is the accounts of a young girl, back when things seemed to be simpler and life was good before things changed. Matilou is a joyful character, she loves her home surrounded by nature and all it has to offer. Being an only child, Matilou dreams and wishes to have a sister and one day during the summer, she gets just that. In the form of PerryAnn, the granddaughter of Grandma Waters who is their neighbor.
This story is a coming of age tale, perfect for teens and young adults. The topics are varied (Bullying, environmentalism, peer pressure, courage and trust). It was written in an easy to understand and clear style which I enjoyed. I think that no young adult would have issues understanding just what is being talked about in this book.
