    1. More reviews and bookish fun over at Deadly Darlings!*Please note that everything in this review is from me. This is what I think would go down if Lucy was real and I got the chance to talk to her.Ladies and gentlemen, today I'm here to interview the main character of The Summer After You And Me, Lucy! *insert applause and possibly some groaning here*Me: How was your experience with Superstorm Sandy? I expect that you were devastated when you heard about it, and that you probably panicked like c [...]

    2. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to SOURCEBOOKS Fire and NetGalley.)“Connor Malloy was kissing me. I was kissing Connor Malloy. That’s all that mattered.”This was a YA contemporary romance, about love in the aftermath of a failed relationship.I felt quite sorry for Lucy in this story, not only had she lost the boy she loved for reasons she didn’t know, but her twin brother behaved horribly towards her! Why he was so nasty, and bas [...]

    3. An Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review.Ummmm. You know Murphy's Law: "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong."?? That pretty much sums up this book. The reader is in the dark for the first half of what happened last summer, but it's not too hard to guess what happened because our main character Lucy pretty much avoids Conner. But alas she can't because she's just attracted to him and his rock hard abs.I liked the bits about Superstorm Sandy because that to me was rea [...]

    4. I felt compelled to read this book not only because it was set in a coastal town but also because it explores the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Bonus, it also had a sweet sounding romance, so I was all in. While the aftermath of the storm didn't play as big of a role as I expected, I still wound up really enjoying The Summer After You and Me.The strength of The Summer After You and Me stems from the strong characterization. The author was able to capture their voices so authentically. Lucy was a [...]

    5. Lately, I have not much patience with books and I'm thinking about maybe going back to read the others sometime again. Not this one. This one annoys me and it's not worth my time, the way I see it. No regrets DNF-inf this one. Plus, there's a love triangle. Nope, not happening.

    6. Find the original reviewhereat This is the Story of My(Reading) LifeTalk a about a good book. This is a fantastic summer read. No way was I putting it down once I'd started. I really really needed to make sure that everything would work out for Lucy. The Summer After You + Me does an excellent job showcasing the ups and downs of life. Especially a teenage life. Lucy has a lot going on this summer, her part time job, her internship, her friends, her family and her love life. As this is a contempo [...]

    7. The Summer After You and Me takes place in post hurricane Sandy New Jersey. There’s a lot of rebuilding and starting over going on for the residents of Seaside, but Lucy’s story revolves around her heartache over a boy she thought she had.We meet Lucy at a very rough patch in her life. That’s probably an understatement. She’s having some major boy problems and then something happens that causes some major friend problems as well. I really liked Lucy. She didn’t always make the wisest c [...]

    8. Seaside Park, New Jersey was hit by Superstorm Sandy and the town is now slowly rebuilding. It's the spring following the storm and Lucy's family finally returns to their house after it was practically underwater from the storm. She's looking forward to a normal summer "down the shore," but things get complicated. She has started dating her best friend, Andrew, but in the back of her mind, she is waiting for Connor, her longtime crush, to return to his shore house next door for the summer. In fa [...]

    9. This was one of my most anticipated releases of 2015 and it definitely didn't disappoint. Full review to come closer to the release date!Updated April 30, 2015 **Thank you to Sourcebooks Fire for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!**The Summer After You and Me is about a girl named Lucy who lives on the Jersey Shore in a marvelous house. She gets to live there year-round, which is pretty awesome. She and her friends do their best to not fall for any of the summer tourists, [...]

    10. Thank you to Sourcebooks Fire via Netgalley for the free review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.This was my first book by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski, and I really enjoyed it. The pace was perfect for a summer beach read, the writing was great, and the characters resonated with me. But, right off the bat, I think there should be a disclaimer in the synopsis stating that there is a bit of a love triangle. You know, like a "heads up" type warning label or something, because I kn [...]

    11. This free book distracted me from my current reading. It was a kinda fluffy, kinda predictable, but fun and quick read.

    12. **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs** The Summer After You and Me by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski is a young adult contemporary romance about a seaside town on the jersey shore. I really liked that the story takes place after the vicious hurricane Sandy because I thought it added a lot of depth to the story. There were some parts of The Summer After You and Me that I really liked, but overall this book was not a hit for me. And those of you that are familiar with my [...]

    13. Most people know of the Jersey Shore as a holiday destination, but for Lucy it’s her home. In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, she’s dealing with seeing her home and community torn apart, as well as dealing with the fallout from a hurried relationship with the boy who spends his summers in the house next to hers.This was a really sweet YA romance which reminded me a lot of Sarah Dessen and Joan Bauer books. I love YA books when the characters are invested in something else than just the ro [...]

    14. I received an e-ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This book is the perfect summer read! Reading The Summer After You and Me will leave readers dreaming of sandy beach towns. In this book by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski, Lucy, the main character, is swept into the eye of an actual storm while dealing with love and the search for independence.The Summer After You and Me is set in the horrific time of Hurricane Sandy, which make this book feel quite realistic. After Superstorm Sandy [...]

    15. Seems a little like a mixture of two Morgan Matson books: Since You've Been Gone and Second Chance Summer. But I seemed to like those two books better than this one.I felt like this book was missing something essential to make it come alive, and since that crucial part was missing, I enjoyed it less than most books I read. Beginning was slow; the end was better. I recommend this book to people who like super light fast reads.

    16. A perfect read for fans of Jenny Han's THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY series! I love beachy summer romance books and this one has just the right amount of heft and depth to it. Lucy is a wonderful protagonist whose emotions and conflicts feel very real and relatable. The author also does an amazing job of evoking the setting--a post-Sandy Jersey shore that is much more than its party town reputation.

    17. Although I thought this book had a bit of a slow start, it ended up being the perfect beach read. A story that every girl, no matter her age, can relate to. Especially those in New Jersey. Great read!

    18. I have nothing personal against this book or author, or subject matter even, I just don't have the patience for a book like this.I don't enjoy the cheesy drama story where the girl pines after a boy who has remained aloof and unattainable, but this other boy likes the girl and she's torn because she wants what she can't have and gets jealous when she sees him interact with his many past girlfriends but this other dude is nice too, oh ma lawd she doesn't know which one to pick. It just seemed lik [...]

    19. 3.5 StarsI have such mixed feelings about this book because, overall, I did really enjoy reading it and finished it in a two-day span. I loved the setting, and it really reminded me of why I love a good beach read. I also loved that it made Hurricane Sandy such a huge part of this book, as that was a detrimental event in a lot of peoples lives. I also really like that Jennifer always throws the importance of volunteer work and caring about the community in her books. However, with all of this be [...]

    20. Find this and other reviews at Ramblings of a Daydreamer.The Summer After You and Me is a light, summery read. It doesn’t deal with anything too heavy, which is nice since a lot of the YA books I’ve read lately are "issue books" and leave me feeling emotionally spent. This was nice to sit and relax with and pretend I was on the beach with the main character, Lucy. Lucy was a very passionate girl. She wanted to be a marine mammalogist, and she was clearly focused and driven about her chosen a [...]

    21. Jennifer Salvato Doktorski ist meiner Meinung nach eine tolle YA Contempoary Autorin. Ihre Bücher sind immer locker, leicht und sommerlich und ihr neues Werk ist da keine Ausnahme. Dieses Mal ist Hauptthema der Sandsturm Sandy, der damals viele Menschen das Leben oder auch ihr Hab und Gut gekostet hat. So ist die Familie der Protagonistin Lucy auch sehr in Mitleidenschaft gezogen worden und hat Verluste erlitten, die ganz große Löcher ins Budget der Familie sprengen. Neben dieser Tatsache ist [...]

    22. Words can’t describe how difficult this was for me to read. Yet, I pushed through and finished…just to be annoyed by the ending that I KNEW was going to happen. Superstorm Sandy not only tore through the Jersey Shore, but also through the lives of those who lived there. Lucy and Connor are neighbors (only seeing each other during vacation season) who find themselves experiencing “something” that turns out to be forgotten about. This story moves from the past to present and back and forth [...]

    23. The summer after you and me: I really liked this book. I live in long island and i thought this book used the fact of hurricane sandy as a way to relate it back to the relationship that started during this storm. I liked the character of Lucy and how much she went through in this novel. It made me so sad the lucy almost lost her house. I did like the romance was well. It was fun quick read and really fun read.  Check out my non-spolier review that includes this book:youtube/watch?v=O9bR5 

    24. Jennifer Salvato Doktorski writes really great, easy to read, contemporary stories with characters who feel real and who I want to root for. I've enjoyed all three of her books, and this newest one has the added element of the setting on the Jersey Shore a few months after Superstorm Sandy. Elements of family, friendships, relationships, community, rebuilding (on multiple levels) and romance all intertwine to make a story that left me hoping for the best for the characters. Reading this story le [...]

    25. This is the perfect, perfect beach read (even in a January snowstorm. Maybe especially in a January snowstorm!). I loved how the NJ barrier island's recovery from Superstorm Sandy mirrored the main character's recovery from a big romantic event that shook her world in an equal way. In fact, I loved how much Superstorm Sandy was part of this story- it was a great way to lend a little (but not too much) gravitas to an otherwise sweet, beachy romance. Reminded me a lot of Michele Dalton's Sixteenth [...]

    26. Such a sweet story of love, heartache, friendship and growing up.Doktorski is now, officially, the queen of summertime reads!!

    27. I loved so much about this book, especially Lucy and the New Jersey setting! Review on the blog soon :)
