Twenty-four-year-old Summer Johnson knows two things. The first is that due to a quickly worsening medical condition, she faces a risky surgery in three months’ time that may or may not end in her death. The second is that she would like to fall in love before then.
As spring sinks into her namesake season on the Florida coastline, Summer plays the odds and downloads a new dating app – and after one intriguing message from a beautiful surfer named Cooper Nichols, it becomes clear that the story of what may be her last few months under the sun is about to be completely revised. All she has to do now is write something worth reading.
Tender, honest, devastating and triumphant, The Summer Remains explores a very human battle being waged in a very digital age: the search for a love that will outlast this temporary borrowing of bones. In an era when many feel compelled to share and re-share anything about everything, prepare to feel a love so special, you will want to hug it close and make it yours forever.
The Summer Remains is a very powerful, thought provoking, rip your heart into a billion pieces, ugly cry, and pick you up again, read. This book carries on so much than a romantic novel. This book will give you feels like no other, it will bring you to your knees, it will draw you into its words, and have you begging to want to live.
Summer, oh Summer, beautiful broken, but so well situated into a world that wasn’t as nice as she would like for it to be. Summer has a heart of gold, and does everything in her power to see the best in people, except the ones who give her no choice but to shut out. She knew she needed to live regardless of what the doctor said, and she wanted to find love. She not only found love, but she found herself. She loved hard.
Cooper, he was rescued by Summer. Cooper came from a dark place, but he later figured out how to view the world as Summer seen it. He didn’t drown himself in pity, he lived on a legacy that only Summer would understand.
You see, there is more to this book than just words, or “I love you’s”. This was a story that gripped your heart strings and makes you want to throw down the electronics and live your life. You never know what someone on the other side of your “friend’s list” is going through, so be careful out there, you never know who is watching from their screen. Live life, but stop dwelling on negativity, you only get one chance. Just do it.
Seth you have a remarkable soul, your words do more than light up a heart, you change the way a mind think, and this story will forever not only take a chunk of my heart, but it will forever change a life, my life. Thank you for writing this, and what an amazing story to read about your brother, may he also –float on-.
