A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger

Book summary:

Whitley Johnson's dream summer with her divorcé dad has turned into a nightmare. She's just met his new fiancée and her kids. The fiancée's son? Whitley's one-night stand from graduation night. Just freakin' great.

Worse, she totally doesn't fit in with her dad's perfect new country-club family. So Whitley acts out. She parties. Hard. So hard she doesn't even notice the good things right under her nose: a sweet little future stepsister who is just about the only person she's ever liked, a best friend (even though Whitley swears she doesn't "do" friends), and a smoking-hot guy who isn't her stepbrother...at least, not yet. It will take all three of them to help Whitley get through her anger and begin to put the pieces of her family together.

Filled with authenticity and raw emotion, Whitley is Kody Keplinger's most compelling character to date: a cynical Holden Caulfield-esque girl you will wholly care about.

My review:

I really enjoy Kody´s writing so it was no surprise that I found this book great. It´s a little heavier than "The DUFF" and "Shot out" and with that a little more interesting. It brings the issue of underage drinking to the surface. From the beggining of the book I fell into the story and could sympathize with Whitley although I don´t approve of that kind of partying. But, she sucks you right in. I also really liked Nathaniel and Harrison, who are very opposite characters but in a way, very much alike. I definetly loved the novel and I recommend it to every Kody´s fan out there. Even though I loved her first two books, this one is, without a doubt, my favorite.
