My review:
I am now officially a Camilla Way fan!

Having read Little Bird last month, and now The Dead of Summer, I can't wait to see what Camilla Way writes next. Although similar in some ways, these two books were also wonderfully different and both had me gripped to the end.

The Dead of Summer follows three 13 year olds through the long hot summer holidays as they mooch about, getting into minor scrapes and avoiding the evil bully, Mike.
It is written from the point of view of Anita. She has mixed parentage, lives in a council house and is raised by her Dad after her mother's death.
Her mates Danny and Kyle have similarly difficult backgrounds and the three of them are all potentially social misfits.
Anita is recounting that summer to a child psychologist and as we follow her version of events, we gradually come to realise that all is not as it seems.
The twist at the end was quite a surprise.

Excellent new author, highly recommended!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

so sorry about the late, late journal, don't know why i missed them, could be the after vacation blues, and i can't seem remember the book, though reading dubaireader's journal makes me want to re-read (read it for the first time, maybe?) this book. thanks dubaireader for the time and the books and so sorry that i journaling, though i've been a bit lax bookcrossing wise this past year, it's that the kindle and ebook is taking over :( and also everything is crazy over here
