Sunkissed by Kasie West

Avery has always used music as an escape. But after her best friend betrays her, even her perfectly curated playlists can’t help her forget what happened. To make matters worse, her parents have dragged her and her social-media-obsessed sister to a remote family camp for two months of “fun.” Just when Avery is ready to give up on the summer altogether, she meets Brooks—mysterious, frustratingly charming Brooks—who just happens to be on staff—which means he’s off-limits.

What starts as a disaster turns into . . . something else. As the outside world falls away, Avery embarks on a journey of self-discovery. And when Brooks offers her the chance of a lifetime, she must figure out how far is she willing to go to find out what she wants and who she wants to be.

I like to call Kasie West books light and fluffy romance. I mean that in the most apreciative and complimentary way.

I recommend a lot of books to teens, and a lot of parents are concerned about the contents of the books their kids are reading. Expecially pre-teens. When anyone comes looking for a romance I can recommend Kasie West books with pride and excitement.

This story in particular made me so happy. Right off the bat there were some Dirty Dancing vibes! Two sisters attending a summer camp. The main character having an awkward but adorable run in with a hot musically inclined staff member.

This story also deals with Avery, the main character not knowing exactly who she is and what she wants to do with her life. She knows what people expect of her, but she doesn’t like the idea I being so predictably safe.

I love recommending any Kasie West books to anyone in a reading slump! This book is no exception! It is indeed light and fluffy, but also relatable and inspirational. Feeling stuck in a rut? Feeling heartbroken and/or betrayed (either because of a book or someone IRL Try this story!)? Although slightly predictable ( not necessarily a bad thing) it’s sure to lighten your mood!
