A lighthearted and swoony contemporary YA romance by fan-favorite author Kasie West about a girl who finds that a summer spent at a family resort isn’t as bad as she imagined…and that falling in love is filled with heartache, laughter, and surprises!
After being betrayed by her best friend, Avery is hoping for a picture-perfect summer. Too bad her parents have dragged her and her sister to a remote family camp for the entire summer. And that’s not even the worst part. Avery also has to deal with no internet, a cute but off-limits staff member, and an always-in-her-face sister.
But what starts as a disaster turns into a whirlwind summer romance as Avery embarks on an unexpected journey to figure out what she truly wants and who she wants to be.

Thanks to TBR and Beyond tours and Netgalley for this e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Avery young is on a summer trip with her family, after finding that her best friend and ex-boyfriend cheated on her. Avery can’t face people and confront them so it is easy to avoid everything and this summer camp doesn’t have an internet facility that helps. Lauren, her sister, is a social media enthusiast and every other story is her next video’s idea.
Brooks and his band perform in camp and preparing for a music competition. Avery accidentally found them and let’s say Brooks is a mysterious-magnet kind of guy. This summer Avery has decided to go out of her comfort box. She wants to try things that scared her. So she and brook had a deal which leads us to many things.
I like this book, it was a perfect summer read. Sweet+ cliché +a bit of cheesiness. The story focused on music, running away from past/responsibilities and insecurities. It also focused on family dynamics. I am glad parents figure were there in the book, unlike many YAs. The ending and other stuff were predictable but hey that’s what happens in summer light reads.
