Book Description

April 24 2007
Meg isn't thrilled when she gets stuck sharing a bedroom with her older sister Molly. The two of them couldn't be more different, and it's hard for Meg to hide her resentment of Molly's beauty and easy popularity. But now that the family has moved to a small house in the country, Meg has a lot to accept.

Just as the sisters begin to adjust to their new home, Meg feels that Molly is starting up again by being a real nuisance. But Molly's constant grouchiness, changing appearance, and other complaints are not just part of a new mood. And the day Molly is rushed to the hospital, Meg has to accept that there is something terribly wrong with her sister. That's the day Meg's world changes forever. Is it too late for Meg to show what she really feels?

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book! April 17 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is amazing. The first time I read it I was 10 years old. I am 23, I read the book for the second time last week, and it is still one of my all time favorite books. It's an emotional story about life and death. You really feel the characters and the farther you read the more "real" they become Easy to read, easy to fall in love with. I think this book is a must read for any age, but be prepared to shed a few tears!

5.0 out of 5 stars 12 years later, still one of my favorites! Oct. 28 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book (reluctantly) for a book report in middle school close to 12 years ago. I cannot tell you how much it touched me. What a beautiful story. Perfect for girls just entering that "awkward stage". I won't give away the story line, but it inspired my love for memory quilts and given me a true appreciation for my loved ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Summer To Die Feb. 1 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I first read this book when I was in forth of fifth grade. Ever since then it has been my favorite book by far. I have read it more times than I can keep track of and it has never failed to comfort me. I love Meg's courage and how human she is. She is passinate and determined but also unsure. I love Molly's strenghth and her girliness. She is so sure of who she is and what she wants to be. It is a book about being their for each other in a time of tragedy and moving on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful--and it holds up! July 7 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book in 6th grade (or so) when it first come out. It had an impact on me (I feared a friend had leukemia because she was getting nosebleeds), and I never forgot it. I reread it yesterday and realized how powerful and well-written it truly is. It's an amazing first novel (from someone who went on to write other of my favorites).
While the book rarely mentions Meg's school life (and never any contemporary friends), it still conveys a sense of her whole life. I cried for her, for Molly, for their whole family. And I was angry with the parents for not sharing the seriousness of Molly's illness with Meg sooner.
It's a keeper (and I wish I'd kept my copy!)

4.0 out of 5 stars A sad but wonderful book! July 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A Summer to Die is a great book. It is about two sisters that have just moved to a new house in the country. They have finally settled in to their new home when Molly, Meg's beutiful, popular older sister starts having nosbleeds. They are a pain, because Molly gets all the attention and is constantly worried about how she looks. But when MMolly's hair starts falling out from the drugs she takes, and she gets stuck in the hospital again from a MAJOR nosebleed, Meg starts to realize what her parents knew all along. That Molly had cancer and was going to die. This is a sad but also happy book, because while Molly dies, there is a new beginning when a baby is born. I loved this book, and you will too!

By Julie
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book. It was so sad and I started crying. I love how this author writes this book and it made me feel like I was there. Once I started reading this book I couldn't stop and I didn't concentrate on anything else. I love sad stories and if you liked this one I recommend you to read Sort Of Forever By Sally Warner.
