99 Days, Review

29 Apr

99 Days by Katie Cotugno

Plot: This is the story of a girl named Molly who is back home for the summer after running off to boarding school for her senior year of college. She was best friends with Julia and dating her brother Patrick–when she and Patrick briefly broke up junior year, Molly had a secret fling with his brother Gabe. Molly’s author mother used the details of Molly’s dramatic situation to write a best-selling novel, unbeknownst to Molly. When the book came out, it wasn’t hard for everybody to figure out the truth, which caused Patrick to break up with Molly for the second time. Unable to deal with the onslaught of hatred and hurtful words and actions from her former friends and classmates, that is when Molly left for boarding school.

Now back for the 99 days of summer before going off to college, Molly must deal with her resentment toward her mother for exploiting her pain for her own gain, her confused feelings toward both Gabe and Patrick, mean girls, and a budding friendship with Patrick’s new girlfriend.

Would you recommend this book? Yes, for older teens. Although I was not happy with the fact that there was such a double standard–everybody was shunning Molly for the events that took place, but nobody was acting like the brothers had done anything wrong.
