From New York Times bestselling author Aimee Friedman comes an inventive novel about fate, family secrets, and new love, told in split narrative.
In this absorbing novel, Summer makes a choice that changes the whole course of the season ahead of her.
When her story divides, Summer finds herself alternately face to face with a longtime crush and worlds away. She is both living amid secrets and kept from them. But what matters more—the choices she makes or the experiences that shape her?
Set in both the south of France and stateside, the twisting, atmospheric Two Summers explores questions of fate, self-determination, and whether or not the journey matters more than the destination.

Gr 7 Up-Summer Everett is boarding a plane headed to Marseilles for a summer of culture, food, and reconnection with her distant father-until her cell phone rings with a drastic change of plans. In this Sliding Doors-style story, readers see two possibilities for Summer's vacation and the ripple effects that follow. Parallel time lines explore Summer's attempts at first love; her loving but claustrophobic relationship with her best friend, Ruby; and a bombshell that further disrupts Summer's fractured family. Both time lines challenge the teen and her previously held beliefs about her life, and she evolves from a timid 15-year-old to a self-possessed 16-year-old who is a confident artist. Friedman maintains an optimistic tone throughout the book, without glossing over Summer's internal struggles. VERDICT This sunny and quick read will appeal to fans of Jennifer E. Smith, and its gentle portrayal of first crushes and high school parties make this suitable for all YA readers.-Susannah Goldstein, Bronx School for Law, Government, and Justice, NYα(c) Copyright 2011.
