"This was supposed to be my best summer yet, the one I've been working toward since practically forever. Now I'm being banished from everything I know and love, and it just doesn't make any sense."

Having recently discarded her dorky image--and the best friend that went with it--Colby Cavendish is looking forward to a long hot season of parties, beach BBQ's, and hopefully, more hook-ups with Levi Bonham, the hottest guy in school. But her world comes crashing down when her parents send her away to spend the summer in Greece with her crazy aunt Tally.

Stranded on a boring island with no malls, no cell phone reception, and an aunt who talks to her plants, Colby worries that her new friends have forgotten all about her. But when she meets Yannis, a cute Greek local, everything changes. She experiences something deeper and more intense than a summer fling, and it forces her to see herself, and the life she left behind, in a whole new way, in Alyson No#65533;l 's Cruel Summer.

I absolutely loved this book. I really want to go to Greece, and the way the scenery is described in this book is magnificent. Great read, recommended to anyone who enjoys love stories, or any of Alyson Noel's books. :)

A great read about romance, and tragedy. I enjoyed it a lot.

A really good book once you get past how much the main character complains all the time. The setting, however, was absolutely gorgeous, as well as the romance and the ending. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an enjoyable, uncomplicated plot-line.
