I couldn’t uite tell whenwhere I was I thought I was in the South for a long time before I realized it was Cape Cod And it also felt a little old timey? They would use words that I don’t see modern kids saying or knowing It was just a bit odd I also didn’t feel much as I wanted to? Like I was ready to be dissolving in feels and like everything kind of felt like I never got in super deep I mean I connected and rooted a bit but I never fully invested Also this is definitely a very character driven novel so it can feel like it wanders around for most of itOverall it was a nice easy breezy read and it definitely did bring a great summer feel It shows fantastic moments of friendship and family but I didn’t fully connect as much as I wanted to for surerating 3 crowns and a Belle ratingrepresentation nacontent warnings absentee parents one dealing with substance abuse issues that is only discussed briefly but not shown
