All they have in common is that they're less than perfect. And all they're looking for is the perfect distraction.

Kate's dream boyfriend has just broken up with her and she's still reeling from her diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. Aidan planned on being a lifer in the army and went to Afghanistan straight out of high school. Now he's a disabled young veteran struggling to embrace his new life. When Kate and Aidan find each other neither one wants to get attached. But could they be right for each other after all?

The Summer I Found You follows through the eyes of 17 year old Kate, who has just been dumped by her boyfriend of over a year Shelton. Kate is upset, and doesn’t know what to do. On top of going through the breakup she is still struggling with her Type 1 Diabetes, her family is worried about her since she is not taking it seriously, and she just wants it to go away.

The Summer I Found You also follows the eyes of 19 year old Aiden. Aiden has just come back from Afghanistan, after losing his right arm, and his friend Pilot. He’s having nightmares, sweating in his sleep, and has no idea what to do with his life now. These two will come together in a romance, but do they really have something, or are they both just using each other as a distraction from the chaos of their lives.

Jolene Perry is an author I have loved for along time, I have read 4 of her novels now and plan on reading many more. She is one of my favorite contemporary writers if it be YA novels or NA novels. Her novels are always so realistic, so heart breaking and warming, and she writes some great romance. Anyone that enjoys contemporary romance I highly suggest checking out her books, I have loved all 4 of her novels I have read! (Night Sky, Knee Deep, Falling, and The Summer I Found You)

This was such a splendid read! I completely devoured this book Monday morning, it’s a short book (240 pages) so it didn’t take me too long finish. Even though this book was shorter I could not believe how well I felt I knew the characters by the end of it. Kate and Aiden were both character that were so easy to love, and feel sorry for everything they were going through at such a young age. Even though both of them were going through so much I still felt they handled everything very well. Besides Kate and Aiden, Kate’s parents were both characters that were very likable, along with Kate’s best friend Jen who is the complete opposite of her.

Overall I just adored this book. There was romance, heart break, grief, struggle, friendship, family, everything that makes up an amazing heartwarming contemporary novel. For anyone not ready for the chilly weather that is going to hit Washington, and want a sweet contemporary novel, then I highly recommend The Summer I Found You.
