Description

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Sarah Dessen comes a big-hearted, sweeping novel about a girl who reconnects with a part of her family she hasn’t seen since she was a little girl - and falls in love, all over the course of a magical summer.

Emma Saylor doesn’t remember a lot about her mother, who died when Emma was 12. But she does remember the stories her mom told her about the big lake that went on forever, with cold, clear water and mossy trees at the edges. 

Now, it’s just Emma and her dad, and life is good, if a little predictable...until Emma is unexpectedly sent to spend the summer with her mother’s family, whom she hasn’t seen since she was a little girl. 

When Emma arrives at North Lake, she realizes there are actually two very different communities there. Her mother grew up in working-class North Lake, while her dad spent summers in the wealthier Lake North resort. The more time Emma spends there, the more it starts to feel like she is also divided into two people. To her father, she is Emma. But to her new family, she is Saylor, the name her mother always called her.

Then there’s Roo, the boy who was her very best friend when she was little. Roo holds the key to her family’s history, and slowly, he helps her put the pieces together about her past. It’s hard not to get caught up in the magic of North Lake - and Saylor finds herself falling under Roo’s spell as well. 

For Saylor, it’s like a whole new world is opening up to her. But when it’s time to go back home, which side of her - Emma or Saylor - will win out?

nostalgia warning

Growing up on a lake myself, this story was bringing me to tears with the vivid descriptions of summer lake life. As much as I didn’t want to compare my summers growing up on the lake to this story, i couldnt help myself.

Emma Sailor was me at sixteen, and now at twenty three after moving away from my own lake, I know exactly how she feels in this story. I love this book, it’ll be up there in my top ten and is now number two in my favorite Sarah Dessen books.

This story brought me to tears more than once and has made me laugh just as much. To any other lake kid out there, pick up this one and get reading, or listening.

This was a good one

I already knew the narration was going to be great. Rebecca soler is awesome! With romance books there are not many ways the story can go. I hope the story is not too cheesy or too far fetched, in this case neither happens.

This was a sweet story with good character dialogue. The events flowed smoothly and it was fun listening the whole time. I really like when an author can write from the point of a younger person, I like to remember the feelings and thoughts of being that age.

Couldn’t finish

I found this book to be way too Young Adult for me. I could skip large chunks and still go on. Did not grab me at all! Lost interest quickly.

Take a vacation and enjoy this story

I feel like I’m a part of a community. This book captures the feeling of community that happens when experiences are shared. People from many different lives can share the same story even if it is just one week a year. This one week becomes so much more than 1/52 of your life. The best friends develop when we dive in and love.

Bummer

I started listening to this book and immediately wondered if I had accidentally ordered a Young Adult book. As far as I could tell, it is meant for adults. At my age, I am not that into teenage romance novels. The dialogue between the “youngsters” was long, drawn out and frankly, boring. I hung in there until the end. I imagined my 12 year old self enjoying this book but at my current age found it disappointing at best.

The rest of the story

When I first started listening I thought, ‘oh crap, teenage angst’ .. I’m too old to have to listen to this...

Then I got into it and the stories were soo different and actually fun to hurry back to when I had to put the book down for a while.

I’ve worked resorts, I’ve survived arrogance and snap judgement and yeah, I wanted to smack some people.. but this turned out really well.

Rebecca is a wonderful story teller/narrator.. she got me interested in staying the course to totally enjoying the book

Sarah is one hella writer.. very great job, both of you

And to Sarah: WRITE ON! 👍🏼

Enjoyed this- great summer read

I’ve been a fan of Sarah Dessens for many years and this is one of my favorites! Each of us has a story, and each person in your life has a piece of it too.

Great story

I loved the story and the plot but I feel as if there was a lot of questions unanswered and plot holes. I wish their was more information about her mom and her. I wish the story had more romance!

Could have been half the length- lots of filler

Way too long and drawn out. Not a ton of actual plot line. Editor should have chopped this story in half. I didn’t hate the story.... it kept me just interested enough that I kept listening and found myself annoyed at the end that I wasted this much time on a story that was just okay. Narrator was fine. Probably wouldn’t recommend.

gut

Ich lese gerne Bücher von Sarah Dessen, obwohl sie wohl eher für Jugendliche gedacht sind - und ich aus diesem Alter schon ne Weile raus bin.
Es sind schöne, intelligent geschriebene Bücher, finde ich. Die Hauptpersonen gefallen mir und die Atmosphäre ist meist sommerlich und meernah (gewässernah). SPOILERALERT

Dieses Buch ist da nicht anders. Mir gefiel nur die Familiengeschichte irgendwie nicht so gut. Wie in allen Büchern von Dessen gab es Schwierigkeiten in Beziehungen (Tochter,Vater, verstorbene Mutter) und 'issues' der Hauptperson. Es kommt zu einem Höhepunkt (verbotener Partybesuch, Tornado) und der Auflösung der Probleme - auch mit Hilfe eines netten Jungen. Hätte für mich alles gut klappen können, aber aus irgend einem Grund sprang der Funke zum Mitfiebern nicht richtig über. Kann es nicht anders begründen, warum ich einen Stern insgesamt abgezogen habe. Bei 'St Anything' z.B. ging mir das ganz anders, obwohl die Zutaten recht ähnlich waren.
