"The Darlings have just begun their second semester of ninth grade, and love is in the air. Victoria: The sweetheart Jack: The irresistible songwriter…but is he writing off Victoria? Natalya: The overachiever Colin: The perfect match, if only the game were less complicated Jane: The drama queen Simon: The Greek god… of mixed signals In the face of both joy and heartbreak, the Darlings know that they'll always have each other. Boys come and go, but the Darlings are still forever."


The cover was what caught my eye, strolling down my local libraries aisles! Before then, I haven't even heard of The Darlings, nor of the author Melissa Kantor; but thank the skies above I did! This cover is perfect for the summer!

My Thoughts:

Summer's coming up fast, and readers are looking for fun and light books to read outside in the sun or at the beach! Well look no further, this book fits the description perfectly! The Darlings in Love, doesn't actually take place in the summer, but that doesn't matter, right? (:

The Darlings in Love, is about three teenage girls (a.k.a the Darlings), learning to live and love. Victoria, Natalya and Jane each have a different relationship status; one has a boyfriend (Victoria), another still has feelings for her ex (Natalya), and the last is crushing on someone who isn't who she thinks he is (Jane)! To make things easier and less confusing each chapter in the book switches narration between the girls, which I really liked!

With three main characters and each going through different tough times, there's tons of room for readers to be able to connect and compare to at least one girl throughout the story! I believe The Darlings in Love is perfect for any teenage girl, especially during the summer time (:
