What I’m Reading: The Summer I Learned to Fly

I happen to select a juvneile fiction book again.  This one is The Summer I Learned to Fly by Dana Reinhardt.

It was really a pretty good book.  Light reading yet kept my attention so it’s perfect to listen to via my headphones when I’m quilting.

Here’s what Amazon had to say, “Drew’s a bit of a loner. She has a pet rat, her dead dad’s Book of Lists, an encyclopedic knowledge of cheese from working at her mom’s cheese shop, and a crush on Nick, the surf bum who works behind the counter. It’s the summer before eighth grade and Drew’s days seem like business as usual, until one night after closing time, when she meets a strange boy in the alley named Emmett Crane. Who he is, why he’s there, where the cut on his cheek came from, and his bottomless knowledge of rats are all mysteries Drew will untangle as they are drawn closer together, and Drew enters into the first true friendship, and adventure, of her life.”

It’s a little predictable but well written.  I liked it enough that I’ll be checking to see what else this author has to offer.  You can find The Summer I Learned to Fly here on Amazon.
