Review: The Other Summer Girl by Sarah D. Towne


In this coming-of-age novel, Melanie Collier is learning how to survive the college experience with few friends and a loner tendency. 

She never imagined herself going to such a large university because it seemed just too impossible - too many people and too far from home. 

Melanie's freshman year is full of social anxieties, the discovery of Creative Writing courses, and the chance meeting with a charming yet secretive Australian tennis player, Lleyton Harris. The culmination of which have drawn Melanie out of her shell and helped her open up to her new life at Indiana University. 

Melanie becomes mildly addicted to the blossoming relationship with Lleyton, and she hopes that their banter and love of music can survive the summer. 

The Other Summer Girl is the first book in the Melanie Collier Series. Stay tuned for The Fall of Us coming out late summer 2014. 

More information about the author can be found here:

An original and interesting coming of age story through the eyes of an interesting character.   Wrapped in the story are the insecurities of new circumstances, romance and friendships in various forms.  This is the first book in a series and I found it enjoyable and interesting.  I look forward to the other books in the series.  3.5 stars
