I really enjoyed this book. This was my favorite of the series. I think Melissa has grown up a lot, even though it’s only been a year, but there was also so much happening to her that was more than just a 14 year old would have in her life. I love the friends she has and how they are so involved.The story revolves around their summer and events that take place among them.I still really enjoy the family. They are my favorite part of this series. I think this book portrays a really strong family. They are hard hit with events in this book. How they deal with them and each other, shows how amazing family.I recommend this book to all readers. However, I do suggest beginning with book one, but realize this is the best book of all three.
