Fifteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton - Love blossoms by the lake in this sweet summer romance, in the tradition of Seventeeth Summer and Sixteenth Summer. Fifteen-year-old Chelsea and her family are spending the summer at a cottage on Lake Michigan, where Chelsea meets and falls for Josh, the cute and shy.
He never really spoke much in class. He was, I thought, a tennis player. Either that or he did track and field. Dave was perfectly nice. Or Peeta Mellark. And they were the boys I was searching for. We all know Mr. Darcy could be a total grump. What I wanted was to feel like Lizzy and Katniss and Mia felt.
And not because my boy was tall and broad-shouldered and blue-eyed. He would have a funny extra bounce in his walk or a cowlick in his hair. He would be super-shy.
He would make me swoon for reasons that were mine alone. Dave Sugarman? There was no swoon there. The most I could manage for him was an uncomfortable smile while we raised our arms over our heads and swished our hips around, throwing in the occasional clap or semi-grindy deep knee bend.
When I glanced at the other couples nearby, I took comfort in the fact that they almost all looked as awkward and goofy as I felt. There was one exception, though.
Emma and Ethan. They seemed to fit together as neatly as their names. Ethan was definitely tall enough to partner Emma. He put his hands on her waist and swung her around in graceful circles. He held her hand over her head, and she improvised a triple pirouette before landing lightly on his chest. Do you even have to ask if their dance ended in a dip? But Ethan left the dance floor with Emma.
They headed directly outside, where, according to Emma, they leaned against the school and kissed for a full twenty minutes without coming up for air. That twenty minutes was all she needed to fall deeply, deeply in love.
Dancers are like that. One good dip, and they are yours. After that, Emma stopped obsessing about the Intensive and started obsessing about her new boyfriend. Most of the time I felt like I was just the opposite—no body, all head. I knew nothing of this soul-touching kind of kiss.
And awkward. And, to tell the truth, kind of gross. I was happy for Emma. But it felt weird to watch her join this club that I was so not a member of. Before you became a member of this been-in-love club, life was murky, mysterious, and, most of all, small. Post-love, I imagined, your world expanded with all the things you suddenly knew. You knew what it was like to open the front door and feel a burst of elation because your boy was standing there.
She had a string of two-month relationships behind her. But Hannah had definitely been there. She seemed to be completely recovered now, though. She grabbed her sleek, white smart phone out of her bag. Abbie and I were bitterly jealous of it. You know we want to spend some quality time with you this summer. I know you. This year is different now that their grandmother has passed away.
Chelsea is a girl who loves books and one day after being overwhelmed with her grandmother's passing, she goes to the bookstore in town. She meets a boy and 'falls in love at first sight'. Throughout the summer they grow in 'love', and have many adventures. Characterization Throughout reading the book I saw the maturity go up in Chelsea. I also realized how much she cares about people and things that are important to others.
Her sisters also grow up and realize what things are actually important. Recommendation I would recommend this book to anyone who would want to read a short, sweet, love story.
It doesn't have a lot of action, but certain things keep the book interesting. I would think teen girls would enjoy this book most because it is based on a 15 year old girl.

It got me into a great mood, too. I felt like she was me. Yes, she was that realistic. First of all, she was exactly my age - 15, and that's quite a rare age for a main character in YA books. I really don't understand why. Second, she was a book nerd and a self-proclaimed dork. She was a shy avid reader who lived her life through books and was waiting for her own adventure to start. This was just like me!! I was amazed to find out that I'm not the only one who's waiting for her real-life Peeta Mellark At the beginning she was very insecure.
She hated the way she looked with those wild red curls and freckled skin, but she grew up during the book and learned to love herself and to feel more confident in her own body. I loved reading about the transformation she made. This book talked a lot about book love and about reading for pleasure, what made it even more enjoyeble for me. Chelsea and Josh met in the best bookstore in the world too bad it's fictional.
I wish I could visit there in real life. Chelsea and Josh started to get closer to each other by reading and laughing about a terrible book together, and that is a great proof that reading can help your love life!! My favorite parts were always the ones that were set in the bookstore, or when Chelsea talked about the novels she read.
And that was actually the main problem I had with the book. Josh was hot and cold in a terrible way. For one second he was the ideal boyfriend, all sweet and loving, and then, at the next one, he became all cold and distant and even tried to avoid Chelsea.
That annoyed the hell out of me!! I mean, what was his problem? What kind of a boyfriend was he, and how could Chelsea stand him!? I mean, that's right, he could be extremely cute when he wanted to, but you could never trust him. He was very unstable and inconsiderate and just so SO annoying. Overall this book was very enjoyable and sweet. It was all about first love and the imperfections of it that make it so cute and naive I highly recommend in to teen girls, especially to 14 or year-olds.
It is also perfect as a quick beach read for all ages!! My Rating: I received a electronic ARC from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review. I was not obligated to write a good review nor am I receiving any compensation for writing this review. The opinions expressed within this review are my own.
An Overview of the Novel: Chelsea is less than thrilled to be going back to the family cottage in Bluepointe. This is the first year her grandmother won't be there; she died and Chelsea is having a really h My Rating: This is the first year her grandmother won't be there; she died and Chelsea is having a really hard time dealing with that. Her grandmother wasn't supposed to die, at least not until she was old. Now everything has changed.
Chelsea takes refuge in the bookstore and meets Josh. Josh is infuriating. She can't tell if he likes her or not and has no clue how to read the signals he's giving her. Until suddenly she does. Finally, Chelsea seems to have met somebody who likes her as much as she likes him. But they only have the summer? After that, who knows. Her parents could sell the cottage and never return. Is it worth it when one summer is all you might have? I started this novel without really knowing what to expect.
Honestly, I asked to read this book because I loved the cover and because I tend to really enjoy summer reads. However, the fact that they were only 15 was a little bit of a turn-off at first. I was wrong. This book was beautifully written and had me grinning from page one to the very last page.
Dalton's writing was engaging and her talent for story-telling was incredible. She created characters who caught my attention from the first page. Chelsea faced a lot of insecurity.
Her oldest sister was the braniac, her second oldest sister was the athlete, and she was Her two older sisters were gorgeous and she had what she thought was hideous red hair. Basically, she had no clue how she fit in. Chelsea wasn't a whiny character or one that was so insecure that you wanted to smack her, but she was dealing with a lot of uncertainty and grew a lot in the book.
I loved that.
I also really loved Josh. He was such a great guy. The pacing of the novel, the plot, the characters—they were all brilliantly crafted. This novel was a beautiful, fun, engaging, light-hearted read that I really enjoyed.
So why 4 out of 5 stars? It was beautifully written. It lacked the depth of my favorite novels, and yet it was still really enjoyable and one of the best I've read in awhile.
In Summary: An engaging, cute summer read that is brilliantly written and centered on fabulous characters that readers will adore. The Wrap-up: I'm glad I took a chance and read this novel. It was way better than I thought it would be and ended up being a really enjoyable read. I'd recommend this to fans of young adult novels or fans of cute, summer reads.
Nov 07, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Simon Pulse and Edelweiss. How does Josh feel about Chelsea? Can Chelsea ever see herself as beautiful? And what happens at the end of the summer? This was quite a light, summery read, nothing too taxing, probably suited to readers age 12 and up.
Chelsea was a likeable character, but Josh was very difficult to get a feel for. I liked how Chelsea tried to keep up traditions from when her family had previously visited the lake house, and I liked how she tried to keep things that were important to her grandma alive. It was nice how he immediately felt something for Chelsea, but their interactions tended to be quite light rather than flirty. The romance between the couple was light, it was more like they were friends who kissed occasionally than boyfriend-girlfriend a lot of the time.
It took a very long time for anything to really happen between Chelsea and Josh, and it never went past a kiss or hand holding, making this ideal for younger readers. I did like the storyline overall, but it was quite slowly paced, and not a lot happened between the couple, which is why I think this book would be more suited to a younger audience. The ending of this book was a little disappointing, but I suppose summer love is just that — only for the summer. Overall; a light, summery, younger teen read.
Jun 17, Jana rated it really liked it Shelves: Cover Love: This is so sweet, but the girl is not a good representation of Chelsea. Why I Wanted to Read This: I read Ms. Dalton's Sixteenth Summer a few years ago and adored it. This isn't a sequel, it's a new summer romance. A super sweet romance. My Thoughts: I just love this romance! This will be a perfect book for my library.

Sweet, innocent and perfect for girls starting to notice boys. This is everything you want in a summer romance book: Everything is in here! Chelsea was so sad about coming to Michigan because she was so afraid of how much she would miss her grandmother. But I like how the whole family rallied around each other and their pain. They made the summer the best they could and still followed their traditions and were able to learn a little bit more about each. I loved both Josh and Chelsea.
First and foremost, Chelsea is a big reader. And she meets Josh at a bookstore he works at because his parents own it. He feels a lot of responsibility towards the bookstore and his parents and that almost ruins his relationship with Chelsea. But, in the end age and love win out. I love that Chelsea wasn't at all looking for romance--she is kind of bothered about how boy crazy her sisters are--but it just hits her out of the blue.
Isn't that how the good ones happens? To Sum Up: I am downloading this for my library. It's fun and sweet and summery. Everything to love about a teen romance!
May 28, Joy joyous reads rated it liked it. There's no lovelier way to read this book than having the rays of the sun warm your skin and a light breeze to cool it off almost simultaneously. Sometimes, the outside elements can help improve your level of enjoyment with certain books. Such is the case for Michelle Dalton's Fifteenth Summer.
If I could describe this book in one word, I'd chose uncomplicated.

The writing, the characters, the relationships, the story line - all added up to this fun and sweet novel set along the shores of Lake Michigan. I think that Michelle Dalton has written a novel especially made for summer reads: After all, who wants to be crying their eyes out while enjoying the nice weather outside?
I most certainly do not. I'm helplessly in love with well-read, book nerd characters. They speak my language and I get them easily. Chelsey and Josh are those characters. Josh scored brownie points for working at a quirky bookstore; while Chelsey scored big by simply mentioning Peeta Mellark. They can also make fun of books as only bookworms could do. There wasn't much drama going on here even if the author tried to add a sprinkle of it. Basically, set yourself up with a nice beach lounger out in your yard and be prepared to get curious looks from the neighbours because of that stupid grin that you will be sporting for the next hour or two that you would be reading this book.
And yes, unfortunately, summer romances doesn't end with the characters continuing on their romance when school starts. But pay no mind, Dalton ended this book in a lovely way.
Over all, Fifteenth Summer is a wonderful addition to your summer reading list. Feb 09, Abby rated it it was amazing. I really liked this book because it made me think about my summer. It made me think about the summer and what is going to happen this year. This book was interesting because you never knew when Chelsea and Josh would see each other Plot summary: In the beginning of the book Chelsea and her family are heading up to Bluepoint, Michigan for the summer.

When they arrive at her grandmother's cabin, Chelsea walks into town to go the library to get some books to read. She walks into town only to figure out that the library is closed.
So she decides to walk down the road and finds a new book store. The bookstore is called The Dog Ear, so curiously she walked in and check out the store.

When she was checking it out she found this guy named Josh. They never talked till the middle of the book when Chelsea and Josh kiss. They spend the entire month of July together. At the beginning of August they break up. At the very end of the book they end up getting back together but they worry that they will never see each other again. I would recommend this book to anyone who would love to read a love story.
I give this a book a five star because I wish I could have a summer like that. Also because it was a very interesting read. I would also recommend this book to anyone who would like to be reminded of the summer. Jan 15, Giselle Martinez rated it really liked it.
I enjoyed reading the book Fifteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton, because there was a lot of action and romance. I enjoyed the adventures and romance between Chelsea and Josh. The book was about the healing of the heart after the loss of a loved one, but it was also about a summer romance. Chelsea, Abbie, and Hannah were sisters and their grandmother had recently died.
The entire family went to the cottage for the summer, but it was different without their grandmother. There was a new bookstore opening up and Chelsea went to check it out. She met Josh and he asked her to go on a date. While on the date she kissed him. Chelsea got a summer job. Chelsea and Josh went on a date on the fourth of July and Josh met her parents. He stayed with her parents and watched the fireworks.
Chelsea and Josh went on many different dates and had a lot of fun. They became extremely close. At the end of the summer her parents said it was time to go home. She did not want to leave Josh. Chelsea knew that when she left her heart would be broken forever.
I would recommend this book to middle and high school girls. It was not challenging to read, so I think middle school girls would be able to understand the book. I think girls would like this book, because it was about romance and has a lot of action. I thought it was a really good book. When I started reading it, I could not put the book down. Jun 11, Ms. Our sister is a super-nerd. Simple, right? She had the same coloring and same long willowy limbs, though her skin was less tan, her figure softer, and her shiny hair chopped into a chin-length bob.
Whenever anybody saw the three of us together, they assumed I was some distant cousin, because my skin was freckled and anything but golden, and my hair was red. Bright red. Until I was born, she was the only member of the family who had this crazy hair. As I thought about this now, with endless, flat Iowa skimming by outside the car window, I inhaled sharply. Something had just occurred to me for the first time.
My dad had blocked my way to tell me the news. His eyes were red-rimmed, and his face looked pale and clammy beneath his early-morning scruff. Her friend, Mrs. You know Granly never locks the door.
Berke found her still in bed and called There was no sit-down, no soften-the-blow discussion about the circle of life. Dad just blurted it out. Hannah was in the bathroom, issuing updates: So that was why my poor dad had broken the news to me so bluntly. My brain refused to register what had happened. The only thing I remember thinking at that moment was that I really had to pee. You know Mrs. And of course, he never was. Well, except for that last time.
After Mrs. Berke called the ambulance, Granly was taken from Bluepointe to South Bend, Indiana, which was the closest city with a big hospital. Through it all, none of it felt real to me. I still had e-mails from her in my inbox.
She was in at least half of the Silver family portraits that hung on our dining room wall. And in all those photos she was surrounded by the still-living. The irony was, she looked more alive than any of us in the pictures. She always seemed to be laughing, while the rest of us merely smiled. Now I have the same hair I had when I was a girl.
Red hair is really difficult, Chels. I hated that my hair was as bright as a stoplight. I cringed when people assumed I had a fiery temper or was as hilarious as an I Love Lucy episode. So I kept my hair long, the better to pull it back into a tight, low ponytail or bun.
And if I fell for a coral shift dress or peppermint-colored circle skirt at one of my favorite vintage shops, I bought it—Anne Shirley be damned.
Before Granly died, my hair had felt simply like an inconvenience, like being short or needing glasses. Thinking about this in the backseat of the car made me feel short of breath—not from carsickness but from panic. I knew that she was gone. I knew she was never again going to call me just to tell me some random, funny three-minute story. This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue? Upload Sign In Join.

Texting with my best friend, Emma, made me feel slightly less queasy. Are you texting with Ethan right now?!? I can tell your palms are sweaty.
Plus there are the long delays. LUV U! But then Ethan Mack asked Emma to fast dance at our spring semiformal, and everything changed. He was, I thought, a tennis player. Either that or he did track and field.
Dave was perfectly nice. And they were the boys I was searching for. We all know Mr. Darcy could be a total grump.
Dave Sugarman? Do you even have to ask if their dance ended in a dip?Chelsea also nit-picks at bad writing with Josh, this brings them closer in a small way. Michelle Dalton.
I did like the storyline overall, but it was quite slowly paced, and not a lot happened between the couple, which is why I think this book would be more suited to a younger audience. I find several problems and the turn of events in here to be very melodramatic and a bit silly. They chatted over my head as if I was no more than an armrest between them. I really liked the way the author Michelle Dalton uses up-to-date information in her book.
I'm really glad that they got to understand each other completely in this unique way despite having some differences, learn to let go of the past and sorrow, and forgive each other.
Both characters are mature for their age and the love is kept at a decent level, while also allowing you to get a feel for the, well,. To me Josh and Chelsea's relationship didn't feel forced but maybe I really enjoyed this one.
