Song of Summer by Laura Lee Anderson
Robin’s perfect guy must be tall, dark, handsome, a good tipper, nice to kids, and have good taste in music. After all, Robin’s first love is her guitar and folk music. Then Carter walks into the diner where Robin works and he fits every single item with one exception, he’s deaf. Despite the fact that they don’t quite speak the same language, the closer Robin and Carter get to each other, the more the differences between them seem to fade away. I can’t decide what I think about this book. On the one hand, I really liked the main characters. Robin and Carter were genuine and their feelings felt real to me. On the other hand, some of the drama felt forced. I didn’t fully believe that after mostly overcoming the large communication obstacle that a small misunderstanding would have such a huge impact on them. Maybe, I just didn’t want that to be the case because I care about them. I suppose that is a hallmark of a good story so, on the whole, I’d recommend Song of Summer.
