"The Summer I Found You" by Jolene Perry

My Book Summary : A little over a year ago, Kate found out that she was a Type 1 Diabetic and that her life was changing forever.

About three months ago, Aiden lost his arm and a friend/co-worker of his while stationed in Afghanistan and now is trying to find out what to do with his life now that it has been drastically changed ... forever.

Yet neither are willing or wanting to deal with what forever even means to them. Therefore, when they meet, and find an immediate connection between them, they unintentionally use each other as a way to distract themselves from their own problems.

As their "friendship" grows, can they help each other overcome their fears about what their lives will be like now...

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! Two people meet and help each other during difficult times in their lives, while unintentionally falling for one another.

Kind of a NC-17 type of YA novel or rather somewhere in between YA and NA genres, I found this novel to be fun, intense, touching, and romantic! Kate and Aiden's relationship isn't one that either expected or wanted right away but it turns into a relationship that both are hard pressed to giving up, no matter what anyone thinks. With their "disabilities," they are able to sympathize with each other and in turn end up helping each other in more ways then one! Together I could not get enough of them, from their rapid attraction to Kate's random cute statements to Aiden's military ways I was drawn in to them as a couple from the beginning. Loved this novel and its engaging characters!!

I recommend it to anyone who likes NC-17 type of contemporary romantic YA novel!

- On a side note -
Even though I loved this novel, I thought the title was a little misleading as they don't meet during the summer time, they actually meet a few months before Kate's finished with her senior of High School.

Book Teaser(s) :
"You need my car?" he asks.
"Yeah. You can, uh, take mine today if you want." I love my car. Saved up since I was thirteen, bought it when I turned sixteen, and spent time on the thing almost every day until I left for Afghanistan. It's a 1972 Chevelle Super Sport convertible. Grey with black racing stripes. The car is perfect. After years of scrounging through scrap yards and buffing out every fender, everything on my car is perfect.
He shifts in his seat. The words right at the edge of his mouth. I know it. Why don't you sell your car, Aiden? You can't drive a stick with one arm. Definitely when the arm missing is your right one.
Why couldn't I've lost the arm I don't know how to use? ~ within Chapter 2 - titled 'AIDEN CONNELLY'
