ne Last Summer by Nick Van Loy tells the story of a young guy, Eric Palmer whose long-held secret comes back to haunt him after receiving a surprise package from his dad, before heading for a trip with his friends.
Eric tries to conceal the package and the content of the package from his friends. Will he accomplish his objective? Yes, or no? If yes, what’s next?If no, any after effect? Let’s find out in this amazing tale – One Last Summer.
For me, the book’s pacing is good. Not too fast. Not too slow. Nick Van Loy was able to carry me along his imaginative world with a smooth ride. I feel a lot of readers will flow well with the novel because of the smooth transitioning between scenes. Unlike some other novels where the ride is slow and boring, or fast and inscrutable, Nick’s One Last Summer is cool and exciting to flow with.
Nick’s writing style is another praise-worthy aspect of his art. His artistry ability to paint exciting scenes with his pen is top-notch. It is my advice that before you pick up the book to read, you should have taken good care of your surroundings. Why? Reading One Last Summer may make you forget about your surrounding circumstances. Sorry. Not may. Will. It will make you forget about your surrounding circumstances. The writer’s writing style is unique -simply beautiful.
Your ride with the book will make you meet some cool characters. Some major. Some minor. Still, all reactive. You will even relate to most of their experiences. You get to feel what they feel -like the feelings between Eric Palmer and Naomi; the feelings between Eric Palmer and Darius Palmer; the feelings between Eric Palmer and Sarah. We experience these feelings personally. Reading this book makes you recollect some of those, your cool and not too cool memories. You just feel connected with the pages. Words after words; pages after pages; chapters after chapters; the whole book. You just get that close connection. Each character had his unique role to play, and they all played it well . I commend Nick for that aspect.
Masterfully painted story. Good pacing. Fully developed characters. Unique writing style. Thus,I rate the book four out of four stars.
I recommend the book to young adult fiction readers. However, the book is not just for teenagers and younger adults, because older folks can also relate well to the story.
