Second chances

Second Chance Summer

Title: Second Chance Summer
By: Morgan Matson

This is a story about how one event can change your life, and how everyone deserves to have a second chance. Returning to Lake Phoenix is not how Taylor Edwards wanted to spend her summer. She’s wanted to forget how she hurt her best friend and first crush there five summers before. But now that her father has been diagnosed with cancer, he wants to spend one last summer at the lake together as a family. Taylor now has to deal with becoming closer to her family, who were never close, and facing the people she hurt all those summers ago, people who thought she’d never come back to Lake Phoenix. As the summer goes on, Taylor realizes that while some people may forgive her for what she’s done, she’s still going to lose the one who had always been there for her.

Second Chance Summer is a mixture of funny, heartwarming, and sad. It’s a story about being able to let go, move on, and the tight bond of friends and family.
