My thoughts: The Edge of Summer is such a beautiful story about navigating first loss and first love. After losing her best friend, Cor is determined to finish the bucket list they made together before starting college.
I love Cor’s character so much, she always tries to put others before herself and I really admire her determination to complete her and her friend’s bucket list. Cor and Mannix have great chemistry. They really have a swoon-worthy romance that I couldn’t get enough of! I found myself wanting to read just one more chapter so many times, I just couldn’t put it down.
I really loved reading about the whales that live in Cape Cod. Learning about them was so interesting because I know next to nothing about them. The whole setting of this book was amazing and made me so excited for summer!
Hope you all enjoyed my review! I absolutely loved reading this, it was so cute! Happy reading x
