Number-one New York Times best seller. Caitlin's divorced mother is, of course, distant and aloof and abdicates most maternal responsibility. Blume creates a rich tapestry of characters. But Caitlin begs Vix to come to her wedding, to be her maid of honor. The binding may be slightly damaged but integrity is still intact.
Judy Blume explains emotion really real and the book turned out to develop the feeling of jealousy, happiness and all kind of real feeling you get from families and friends. Invited to spend holidays on Martha's Vineyard with Caitlin and her eccentric, mysterious family, Vix is welcomed into a life totally unlike her own. I don't think Jessica, the 'wild' twin, ever got beyond some passionate kissing. Now, as they start seventh grade, Stephanie meets Alison, who has just moved to their neighborhood.

It did take me Whenever I pick a book I tend to read the reviews on here first. So I wasn't very interested when things fell apart as they did.
What I didn't like was the shallowness of the characters - I really felt cheated that the reader never really gets inside their heads and figures them out. My gut instinct was 4 stars - and I can truly understand why some people didn't love this book, I actually quite agree with half of the criticism. It's fun to read- but warning- it didn't provide as much closure as I had hoped for! But of all of Blume's books, why is that the only one to ever have gotten made into a movie? She spends summers on Marthas Vineyard with her family. They're still Vixen and Cassandra, summer sisters forever. None of the characters were believable; all were flat caricatures. No writer captures the seasons of our lives better than Judy Blume.
Younger guys This story has so many elements that should make it an easy success. I'll stick to my happy memories of Judy Blume's teenage books! Victoria Vix 's parents reluctantly agree to the trip, which begins a relationship that spans decades. But when will she be ready to leave the past behind and move toward the future? Because Vix wants to understand what happened during that last shattering summer. I just love how fast-paced and frank Judy Blume's writing style is--it's so different from what you get with most chick lit.

But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Five years later, I practically know it by heart. Either way, it was a sad way to see it all end.
Best of all, if after reading an e-book, you buy a paper version of Summer Sisters. Which is why I'd love to have them around for my daughter when she gets older. You tell them it's edgy, they love it. As a kid, I enjoyed her books but her skill set as a writer did not seem to evolve as she ventured into adult fiction. I moved away to a small nowherevill town and fell in love. None of the characters were believable; all were flat caricatures. Anyway, if you define a favorite book as one you want to read again and again, this is definitely one of my favorites.
Desire and lust are not the only things you need to feel for someone to endure a marriage. And Vix knows that she will go -- for the friend whose casual betrayals she remembers all too well.
