Fourteen Summers

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I LOVED this book. The premise is delightful: Twins Aiden and Max are childhood bffs with Oliver until Oliver moves away. The twins run into Oliver over summer break from college and they pick up where they left off. I enjoyed the interactions among the three and the shenanigans they got up to as they rekindled their friendship. The author did an awesome job cultivating their varied personalities–even the twins’–and I enjoyed getting to know each of them. The three person POV worked really well, and I appreciated getting insight into Max’s head even though he wasn’t one of the love interests. The development of a summer romance between Aiden and Oliver is so sweet, I wanted to reach out and hug them tightly. And I especially loved the dynamic between the twins. Their arguments–err, fights, really–are written so well and true to life as someone with siblings. A slight case of mistaken identity adds to the charm of this read.

Oh, and that cover! What a work of art. I seriously can’t stop staring at it.
