About Last Summer by Patricia B. Tighe
When Gabby Vega’s best friend, Kenzie, accuses her of failing to follow through on anything and challenges her to work on her acting by pretending to be from Spain for one week, Gabby decides to prove she’s not a quitter. After all, it’s only one week of vacation with Kenzie’s cousins. But, that was before she knew that Noah Jernigan would be joining. Noah, the boy from drama camp last summer who she had to dump when summer was over. Now he’s the only other person who knows who she really is and seems to be taking revenge for his broken heart by seeing how uncomfortable he can make Gabby’s week-long challenge. Overall, Patricia B. Tighe’s latest novel has all the hallmarks of a good summer beach read, an easy, relaxing read with a happy, satisfying ending. My one complaint would be that both Gabby’s and Noah’s character felt a little flat. I was confused as to why Gabby was actually putting up with some of Noah’s sometimes cruel antics and why they were okay with the whole charade. However, the secondary characters were engaging and made up for the flaws in Gabby and Noah and the story kept me interested until the end.
