        After I finished That Summer, I said, "Did I miss something here?" This book would be pretty good, but it doesn't seem to have much of a plot. I mean, the characters were great, but there was no problem! The days sort of just counted down until Haven's (the main character) sister got married. I just found the book very uninteresting because there was no conflict or other reason to keep reading. At one point, when Haven reconnected with her sister's old boyfriend, I thought, 'we might have something her.' But no. The writing was great, though, and I look forward to reading other books by Sarah Dessen (and hope they are better).
