The Last Summer (of You & Me) Summary


The Last Summer (of You & Me) by Ann Brashares

The long, hot summers spent on Fire Island have always been the highlight of the year for sisters Riley and Alice. Not least because it is there that they always see Paul: their next-door neighbour, Riley's best friend in all the world, and the only boy Alice has ever loved. Then Paul goes to university, and he leaves them both behind him.

Three years later, as Alice prepares to start Law School, Paul returns. The trick, he tells himself, is to have what he had without destroying it. But their world will change irresistibly, wonderfully and tragically, with every breath they take.

'A compelling premise . . . steeped in the familiar longings for lost time that readers seeking the carefree pleasures of a summer will enjoy' * Kim Edwards, Washington Post *
'An unputdownable beach book calls for love, deceit, and sex. And THE LAST SUMMER (OF YOU AND ME) has all those elements. The page-turner follows two 20 something sisters as they cross the threshold into adulthood and try to make summer romance last all year.' * Cosmopolitan *
An unputdownable beach book . . . love, deceit, and sex. * Cosmopolitan *
'The page-turning pace of Ann Brashares's THE LAST SUMMER (OF YOU & ME) makes it a perfect beach read.' * Redbook *
'Brashares' writing is natural, insightful, and affecting' * Entertainment Weekly *
'Make no mistake, THE LAST SUMMER (OF YOU & ME) is a weeper: if you don't grow misty there's something a bit shifty about the state of your heart. The novel is a vivid elegy for youth, and Brashares is wise as well as sentimental. She sagely remembers just how it feels to be young, lost and in love. * Miami Herald *
'Her storytelling talent wins out' * New York Post *
