Review: This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki


This story follows Rose’s yearly summer trip with her mom and dad to a lake house in Awago Beach. It’s their getaway, their refuge. Rosie’s friend Windy is always there, too, like the little sister she never had. But this summer is different.

This One Summer felt like a great summer read. And even though the plot wasn’t the most exciting, it still kept me flipping page after page. Plus, the friendship and banter between the two main characters added some needed humor to the story.

A great read to reminisce about those summery days with spectacular illustrations in it. I’m excited to read more from the authors!

3.5/5 stars
