Summer Sisters

If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it. I managed to read the entire book in one day, with a one year old running around. It's that good! It came out a while back, but I received it as a gift when my critterface was itty bitty, and I just didn't have time to read it. Now, she's a little bit older, I'm not currently working, and I can actually read while she plays on the floor or terrorizes the dogs. I loved that this book has short chapters, because with a little one, its hard to read more than a few pages at a time without bottle refills, snuggles, and stopping to play with whatever she has brought to me.

Here is the amazon description:
In the summer of 1977, Victoria Leonard’s world changes forever when Caitlin Somers chooses her as a friend. Dazzling, reckless Caitlin welcomes Vix into the heart of her sprawling, eccentric family, opening doors to a world of unimaginable privilege, sweeping her away to vacations on Martha’s Vineyard, an enchanting place where the two friends become “summer sisters.”

Now, years later, Vix is working in New York City. Caitlin is getting married on the Vineyard. And the early magic of their long, complicated friendship has faded. But Caitlin begs Vix to come to her wedding, to be her maid of honor. And Vix knows that she will go—because Vix wants to understand what happened during that last shattering summer. And, after all these years, she needs to know why her best friend—her summer sister—still has the power to break her heart.
