The blog for books and movies

9578513Drew’s a bit of a loner. She has a pet rat, her dead dad’s Book of Lists, an encyclopedic knowledge of cheese from working at her mom’s cheese shop, and a crush on Nick, the surf bum who works behind the counter. It’s the summer before eighth grade and Drew’s days seem like business as usual, until one night after closing time, when she meets a strange boy in the alley named Emmett Crane. Who he is, why he’s there, where the cut on his cheek came from, and his bottomless knowledge of rats are all mysteries Drew will untangle as they are drawn closer together, and Drew enters into the first true friendship, and adventure, of her life.

  1. The Summer I Learnt to Fly is a wonderful book about a teenager called Drew turning from a cautious girl into a carefree young woman. I really liked this book because it was very mysterious which made it hard to put down. My favourite part of this book is when Drew meets Emmett Crane because they get along well and it turns out to be one of Drew’s first experiences of real friendship. My least favourite part in this book is the start because it is very slow and it takes a long time for the book to get started. If I could change this book I would make the start shorter. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a mysterious, easy read.
