    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.

    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.

    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.

    no meat.

    While this book had a great beginning and great end, the in-between lacked. It ends the way I want it to, but there's absolutely no lead up to it other than the MC making small comments here and there.

    The MC has little to no interactions with the other characters and if she does we don't get the full scenes just the MC thinking about them.

    It only really ever goes into detail to talk about her dead mother, and how rich her dad and grandma are, other than that it's very small on descriptions.

    It could've been written better, I definitely would not recommend this book to anyone, but the narrator is good.

    Good story!

    This was a very good book to listen to, although i do wish there was a sequel; as i feel like there’s a lot more that could happen or be said. The only thing I didn’t like was i felt like in the beginning this book wa kind of a slow start. Overall the meaning and the story was great, Sarah dessen always does a great job!

    Meh

    If I had to describe THE REST OF THE STORY in one word, I’d use “pleasant.”

    Emma Saylor stays with her estranged grandmother Mimi, while her father and stepmother honeymoon overseas. Emma doesn’t recognize her upper-middle class privilege until she meets the working class maternal side of her family in the lakeside community. Despite losing her mother to an unintentional overdose, Emma has no idea how privileged her life is. She has issues with anxiety, though probably not rising to a diagnosable condition. Her same age cousins work for the family motel; at seventeen, Emma has never considered a job.

    THE REST OF THE STORY is the gaps in Emma’s knowledge about her mother, why her mom was estranged from family etc. Sarah Dessen has Emma called by her middle name Saylor by Emma’s mother’s family, as if to remind readers father: professional, steady and mother: chaotic, working class. The two names didn’t work for me and felt artificial.

    Not much happens for the first 90% of THE REST OF THE STORY. Emma falls into insta-relationships with her family as if no time had passed between the the one time she met her cousins and their friend Roo thirteen years prior. As someone who missed years with cousins who spent time with each other in my absence, I know the transition isn’t insta as if I’d been included all those years. Emma’s cousins have over a decade of memories with each other. The possible romance is just as insta-unrealistic. The summer partying felt like the most authentic part of the story.

    THE REST OF THE STORY is mostly an enjoyable, although predictable read. Nothing about the story feels unique or memorable, but as I said in the beginning, it was pleasant enough.

    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.
