My third time reading this one, it’s a favorite, though it probably isn’t for everyone.

The frank sexual content is one of the areas where this might lose some readers. I’m fine with the adults and older teen scenes, it’s the sexual content in relation to kids under fifteen, particularly a bathtub scene where it does sometimes feel like a bit much yet at the same time you can’t help but think that it’s realistic, too, to portray kids’ thoughts, experiences, and curiosity about sex and their bodies.

Caitlin is another area that may lead some to DNF this one. While family and romance play a part, the central relationship is Vix and Caitlin’s friendship, it’s definitely on the toxic side of things which often doesn’t work for me, but there’s something so compelling and page-turning about the messiness of their bond/addiction to each other. I’d give anything to read Caitlin’s POV (we hear from everyone in the book except for her), to know for certain what was going on in her head and her heart, still, the more times I’ve read this book and the more widely discussed mental health has become, the more I empathize with her, on the surface Caitlin is pretty easy to hate but Judy Blume isn’t just a surface kind of writer, there are hints of Caitlin’s vulnerability and her fragility that doesn’t excuse her behavior but does allow you to occasionally feel for her.

I’m forever undecided on what impresses me most about this book, the emotional truth in it or the scope of it, from middle-school and care-free summers to college and careers. It’s amazing how much ground is covered without an overwhelming page count, without ever feeling like you’ve missed something crucial or been shortchanged in any way and how it gives a sense of each decade it’s in without extraneous research bogging down the momentum, there’s an instinct here for the right details rather than all the details that I thoroughly appreciate and admire.

Debido a su gran contenido sexual , esta novela de Blume está dirigida directamente a una audiencia adulta, no a su audiencia entre adolescentes, por la que ganó popularidad.
Summer Sisters es una novela sobre la mayoría de edad sobre dos amigas, Caitlin Somers y Victoria "Vix" Leonard, que pasan todos los veranos juntas cuando eran adolescentes. Las chicas son polos opuestos, Caitlin es hermosa, animada y popular, mientras que Vix es tímida pero intelectual. A medida que avanzan los años, las chicas se vuelven más y más cercanas, pero pronto encuentran que su amistad se tensa.

Summer Sisters is the story of two unlikely friends. Caitlin (Cait) and Victoria (Vix) are the summer sisters. Vix life changes when Cait invites Victoria to her father's on Martha's Vineyard during the summer. Caitlin is privileged while Vix family struggles to survive. The two girls start their relationship at the age of 12 and follows them through till they turn 30.

Vix is a very shy, quiet and considers herself ordinary, while Cait comes from a divorced wealthy family. Vix is thrilled that Cait wants to be her friend and invites her to spend the summer with her at her father's place.

I found myself actually feeling for the characters. I felt sorry for Vix at times for the way Caitlin would treat her. Cait was very reckless and did help Vix expand her experiences. I did find myself laughing at times. ( )

One of my favorite Judy Blume books and a definite re-read. Vix and Caitlin seem to be polar opposites in so many ways, yet the bond that they form transcends boys, social status, years apart, betrayal, and so much more. ( )

Blume leads two best friends from age 12 to 30 through first love, college, marriage, and motherhood. When Caitlin Somers invites Victoria (Vix) Weaver to her divorced dad's home on Martha's Vineyard for the summer, it's the start of a lasting friendship, as they make a pact ("Never be ordinary or die"), experiment with the Power between their legs, and develop crushes on older island boys. For Vix summers on the Vineyard provide an escape from family and financial concerns and an entry into a privileged surrogate family. For Caitlin, with her father remarried, Vix is both a source of unconditional love and a rival. The strength of this novel is its vivid portrait of teens in the 1980s. Interspersed viewpoints of various characters add interest and depth.
