Stranded on a boring island with no malls, no cell phone reception, and an aunt who talks to her plants, Colby worries that her new friends have forgotten all about her. But when she meets Yannis, a cute Greek local, everything changes. She experiences something deeper and more intense than a summer fling, and it forces her to see herself, and the life she left behind, in a whole new way(Summary taken from goodreads).
Normally, I would have never given Cruel Summer a second glance, but since I really enjoy the way Alyson Noel writes and have only read her Immortal series, I figured I’d break out and give it a try. Unfortunately, I found myself rather disappointed. The writing style did not please me and the overall plot was a bit all over the place.
