Be My Guest Reviewer: Kelsey from Reading Keeps You Sane

Hi! I'm Kelsey. I review books on my blog, Reading Keeps You Sane! My favorite genre to read is Young Adult and I also really love it when there is romance in the book to, that's sugar coating it. My favorite book is Just Listen by Sarah Dessen. Sarah also happens to be my favorite author. I am hoping to become a veterinarian when I'm older but I also want to publish a book, its a lifetime goal for me. Currently my family is hoping to start up an independent bookstore in the little town I live in. Come visit me and read my reviews here! Thanks!

Meg isn't thrilled when she gets stuck sharing a bedroom with her older sister Molly. The two of them couldn't be more different, and it's hard for Meg to hide her resentment of Molly's beauty and easy popularity. But now that the family has moved to a small house in the country, Meg has a lot to accept.Just as the sisters begin to adjust to their new home, Meg feels that Molly is starting up again by being a real nuisance. But Molly's constant grouchiness, changing appearance, and other complaints are not just part of a new mood. And the day Molly is rushed to the hospital, Meg has to accept that there is something terribly wrong with her sister. That's the day Meg's world changes forever.

A Summer To Die is a beautifully short moving story. Meg befriends the neighbors, an old man and a young couple with a baby on the way. Meg grows up through this story in such a way. It's a very short novel but you are sure to laugh and cry. Meg is the smart girl who isn't popular and loves photography. Her personality is soft and sweet. Molly is the type of girl most girls envy, good looking, popular, loud, and very confident in herself. The story these sisters share is breathtaking. The characters are soft and easily liked.

Lois Lowry's writing is beautiful. She details perfectly and doesn't run on. A Summer to Die is the one story that you should take the time to spend and read. It will no doubt make you cry. You'll be crying sad for Molly but the whole rest of the story is so happy you wont be able to not smile while crying. This is one of my favorite books ever. I hope you will take the time to read a 150 page book. It's one of the most mesmorizing books I've read. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Read On!
