Review - The Summer Before Boys

This is the synopsis from Amazon:

Julia and Eliza are best friends, spending the summer together. Julia's mother is serving in the National Guard and Julia spends all of her time trying not to think about what could happen. So the girls lose themselves in their summer, hanging out at the resort where Eliza's father works. But when they meet a new boy, neither one of them is prepared for what it does to their friendship.

Nora Raleigh Baskin delivers a poignant look at the way a first crush can come between best friends and the importance of hanging on to the time you have as a kid before rushing into growing up.

My review: Did Not Finish

It took me a long time to get into this book, and I still had to stop a little over half way. I don't know what it was, but I just felt like this book started slowly and took a long time to pick up and get interesting. The boy isn't even introduced until well over a third into the story! Not a bad book, and I feel like those who really love romances would enjoy it, but it was not for me.
