Blurb (from Goodreads):
When Frannie Little eavesdrops on her parents fighting she discovers that her cousin Truman is gay, and his parents are so upset they are sending him to live with her family for the summer. At least, that’s what she thinks the story is. . . When he arrives, shy Frannie befriends this older boy, who is everything that she’s not–rich, confident, cynical, sophisticated. Together, they embark on a magical summer marked by slowly unraveling secrets.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This wasn’t a bad story, but it just didn’t hold my interest.
I did really connect with either of the characters in this book, Frannie was just dull, and I didn’t particularly like Tru either as he seemed to only really care about himself.
The storyline in this was about Tru coming to stay with Frannie’s family because he had come out as gay, and then we got them going to the beach and watching a band and stuff over the summer, none of which was very entertaining for me to be honest. We then got a bit of a revelation towards the end, but that wasn’t very exciting either unfortunately.
