Fast Facts:

  • Genre: Romance/Science Fiction
  • Recommended For: 6th Grade and Up/Fans of Twilight
  • Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Summer of Yesterday by Gaby Triana is a mediocre book. It is a classic girl-versus-nature situation when the main character, Haley, has a seizure and ends up in 1982. She sees her parents falling in love, and meets the first boy that she ever “really likes”. All of Triana’s characters are predictable and none of them seem to succeed in making the reader want to find out what happens next. It was a book that took all of my will power to keep reading. The entire book is one big cliché. It is only deserving of two of five stars. I would recommend it for readers in sixth grade and up because there are some adult situations. I would also recommend it for people who liked the Twilight series and other books with romance and drama.
