In Shannon Klare’s fun and sexy YA novel Last Chance Summer, a teen is shipped off to work as a counselor at a summer camp―only to butt heads with her co-counselor.

Alex is a sheriff’s daughter with a less than pristine reputation. When she’s caught drinking at a party by her dad’s deputy, she’s in deep trouble. With an already incriminating incident in her past, Alex’s parents ship her off to her aunt’s summer camp to work as a counselor.

What’s worse than spending your summer deep in the mosquito-infested woods of Texas?

Being paired with an obnoxious co-counselor who wants nothing to do with you.

Alex is determined to make the best of her summer, even if it means putting up with Grant, who has secrets of his own that he’s determined to protect. Can Alex and Grant put their egos to the side and find the bright side of a summer that neither of them signed up for?

Last Chance Summer is a standalone Young Adult Contemporary and tells the story of Alex and Grant.

Last Chance Summer was the second book I’ve read by Shannon Klare and I really enjoyed it! Last Chance Summer was a quick, and fun read with some relatable characters. It’s hard not to enjoy a good YA Contemporary and I think that Shannon Klare did a good job with this book!

In the beginning, I had some troubles with liking Alex, but I started to enjoy reading about her the more I read. Grant is a character you cannot not like. I think he’s a good character because he’s there for Alex and he’s just really funny and likes to tease Alex.

I really liked the concept of Last Chance Summer. This isn’t just a normal YA Contemporary because it also talks about grief and struggling. I think more books should talk about these topics because they’re really important. Last Chance Summer was a good read and I really enjoyed it!
