I really love this book. Alex and Sam switch summers. Sam is athletic so she trades with Alex for the riding camp, so Alex can read all she wants. 5 stars. Jean Little has made a wonderful book stuffed with happines, suspense, cliffhangers, mystery, sadness, and more. This is my first Jean Little book and I want to read another one. Somebody Else's Summer is about 2 girls who do not like where they are going for the summer. Alex and Sam risk spending the entire summer with different names, people, activities, and more. I am surprised no one has commented on this book yet because it is amazing. If I were Alex or Sam I would have done the same thing. I think it was brave of them to switch. In the middle of the book they meet old Mr. Carr who is keeping their secret safe. Mr. Carr dies in the book. All in all this book is amazing and you should read it.
