Goodreads: From bestselling author, Dina Silver, comes her first Young Adult Contemporary Romance novel.
A strong-willed yet vulnerable young beauty, Julia Pearl is sixteen years old when she’s sent away to summer camp for the first time. Julia’s father and stepmother are convinced that time away from home will be good for Julia, hoping it will restore the confidence she lost when her mother disappeared five years earlier.
Released from the emotional constraints of her new family and the ugly reputation her mother left behind, Julia finds herself reluctantly tossed into the free-spirited and often drama-infused world of overnight camp—where she quickly falls for an intensely charismatic counselor named Jack Dempsey, a nineteen-year-old college student who will prove to save her life in more ways than one.
Rich with humor and poignancy, Whisper If You Need Me is a timeless story that will remind readers of the strength of friendship, the unwavering devotion of family, and ultimately, the power of young love.
Ope’s Opinion: If you like summer camp books with a little romance, a lot of girl drama and some family issues, you will fall in love with this book. The story line is a bit predictable with a good looking guy at camp, a young camper falls in love and a couple of mean girls cause trouble. Dina Silver adds some interesting elements to keep your attention.
The characters are interesting and relatable. I would recommend this to a young adult reader with the warning of some foul language – not excessive, but also not necessary.
I have a couple more Dina Silver books on my shelf I will look forward to reading them.
Rating: 3 – I like the book enough to suggest it to a friend or two.
