My thoughts: That Summer, by Jo Huddleston, was an interesting story.  There was a lot more to the story than the description on the back.

Jim was certainly a confused person when it came to being strong in God.  He was doing so well, but a pretty girl, Caroline, turned his head.  It was too bad that Caroline came from a rich family and Jim did not.  Class and parents got in the way of what could have been a great relationship between them.

I found that I became frustrated with all of the characters, because of how they left God behind and did not spend time with Him.  It made the story personal for me, because I notice how much better life is when I make time to spend with God.

I really liked the pictures of the old car and the scene of the creek on the front cover.

I usually would not read a book like this, but I really enjoyed it.  I would recommend it to you.
