The Summer I Gave Up Boys by Kassandra Kush is perfect for a fun summer read.

Samantha Valero, Staff Writer

Our Rating: B-

This short novella by Kassandra Kush is about a girl named Kaliyah Simon who just broke up with her boyfriend of 1 year after she found out he was cheating.  She became a viral sensation. For what? She had thrown almost everything she could get her hands on at him. What a nightmare! So, because of her anger, she decided she would give up entirely on boys and all their drama for one summer.

But when her arch enemy Isaiah Winters comes into her life once more, her promise to be boy-free may not be kept. When Kaliyah, Isaiah and her ex-boyfriend are all at a party together, will it end in disaster? Or will everyone leave unscathed?

Also, with her best friend going boy-crazy, Kaliyah’s twenty-first birthday looming on the horizon, Isaiah continually showing up on her doorstep and an ex that seems to want her back, Kaliyah’s summer promises to be anything but quiet.

With the cheesy plot line, the interesting character backgrounds and the much needed description of this book, I would recommend this book to almost anyone.
