Watermelon Summer

We rated this book:


Forsythia wants nothing more than to visit the commune where her mom used to live. Despite denial of being one, her mom was a hippie in an “intentional community”, where Forsythia was conceived. After hearing all kinds of tales about Greensun, Forsythia longs to go visit the place. Unfortunately, Forsythia’s mom had abandoned the place long ago, after being fed up of the hippie life. Forsythia even offers to give up her college dreams to spend the summer in Greensun and possibly find her biological dad, but her mom just won’t budge. That is, until her stepdad agrees. And so Forsythia flies to Greensun only to find out the place is financially failing. Forsythia can’t let the little community just disappear out of her life; not without finding her father, or leaving Jacob, her special someone. She has to try and glue Greensun back together, because if Greensun goes, Forsythia would miss out on the adventure of a lifetime.

Anna Hess has constructed a creative masterpiece. Watermelon Summer is a great book. It isn’t a page turner but it’s a sweet, heartwarming story that satisfies souls. It’s perfect for anyone looking for a pleasant, road-trip-like book. Watermelon Summer sure is juicy and sweet!
