Julia Ducharme is ready for a fresh start. Her little brother has finally recovered from a serious illness, and now she just wants to enjoy peak season at the campground her family owns. Maybe this will be the year her annual summer fling with Dan Schaeffer becomes something more?

But her summer dreams are quickly shattered. First, Dan arrives for vacation with a new girlfriend in tow, and then Julia discovers this may be her last summer in the only home she's ever known.

Crushing medical bills have brought her single mom to the brink of bankruptcy, and a wealthy developer is sniffing around the campground. He sees what Julia sees: lush woods, a pristine lake, miles of trails for adventure. Unlike Julia, he thinks this is the perfect spot for a casino resort.

Heartbroken and afraid, Julia looks to the stars for some perspective. Taking her telescope down to the dock one night, she has a chance encounter with a guitar-playing boy who offers some helpful advice. Too bad this handsome stranger is the developer's son, Nick Constantine.

As plans for a resort move forward, Julia is desperate to find a solution that doesn't mean leaving the lake. Nick, in turn, is desperate to separate himself from his father's aggressive business tactics. He promises that, together, they can thwart the sale.

But can Julia trust him to conspire against his own father? And could she ever she trust him with her heart?

SUMMER CONSTELLATIONS is a story of lost summers, hidden treasure and love written in the stars. It is also a thoughtful reflection on what it means to love --- and leave --- one's childhood home.

My Review

It’s been quite a busy time for me and with the few pages I read it was an honest to good book. I had never heard of the syndrome her brother had before and once I seen what it was via the internet it was amazing how the author captured Caleb’s condition describing all the symptoms he had correlated with exactly what the condition was. In the beginning Julia sounded like she didn’t want to leave but then looking forward to her time with Dan at her favorite campground. It’s a good book for young readers but also good for adults as well.

The cover is very beautiful as I got a physical copy, the starry night and the words were perfect it reminded me of times when I was with my family on a campground long ago and brought back those memories of fun times and summer nights. I’ve only just had a small time to read this but I will continue to give my full review very soon. So be sure to come back cause i ma not done writing this. Consider this my half review. More to come soon
