Publisher's Summary

Escape to the summer and feel the warmth of Sunday Times best seller Paige Toon's storytelling.

A Dorset summer, a chance meeting, and Joe and Alice, both 18, fall into step as if they have known each other forever. But their idyll is shattered as quickly as it began. Joe leaves without warning; Alice heads off to Cambridge University and slowly picks up the pieces of her broken heart.

Years later, when she catches the attention of gorgeous, gifted, rich boy Lukas, Alice is carried along by his charm and swept up in his ambitious plans for a future together.

Until news of Joe reaches her once more, but he's out of reach in a way that Alice could never have imagined. Life has moved on; the divide between them is now so great. Surely it is far too late to relive those perfect summer days of long ago?

One Perfect Summer was selected for the Zoella Book Club, and Paige Toon's novels have been published across the world.

Didn’t want it to end

I loved this book so much. I usually only listen to books when I’m in the gym but this one I had to listen to all the time. Loved all the characters, couldn’t decide how the book was going to end. Wish there would be a second book

Total absorption!

This story, like a seesaw plays with the emotions-one minute living with the bliss of a relationship but then an even more intense one takes over. The author expresses it all so well as the story unfolds.

One perfect summer

I thought the narrator was great but was so disappointed how ‘quickly’ the story ended without telling us what happened. Such a build up to that point and then it was over.
