SynopsisI'm a girl. I met a boy. Why can't it stay that simple? Here, in this town, summer doesn't just mean tiny bikinis and sunglasses, white toothed grins and lounging at the beach. It means pain. And loss. And false promises. It means liars pretending to be saints, friends pretending to be enemies, rivals pretending to be lovers. For me, it means being crushed. The Crush, actually. The one they all want simply because they were told to. It means being surrounded by beautiful faces and gorgeous bodies, sweet words and sizzling kisses. It means being wanted and despised. My name is Chloe Summer, and I'm afraid that if I'm not careful, this summer could be my last.

4 out of 5 Stars
Crushing Summer is an awesome WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON type of read. Chloes hometown maybe the weirdest hometown of all time with their weird Assignment ritual. When Chloe strangely becomes the Crush when she never even signed up, is only the start of her weird summer. I love how the way Stunich writes is how my brains works, if you know what I mean? It is like her characters are pretty normal they aren't 30 year old minds in a 16 year olds body. If the characters are 16 they act 16 they have typical 16 year old reactions to things. Not that there was anything typical about Crushing Summer, the mystery and the "game" played was really unlike anything I had read before and I had no idea where it was heading. Rarely can I not predict the outcome or the who dunnit but Crushing Summer had really left me stumped until it was spelled out for me. Great easy read.
