Remember how excited you used to feel in June, as the sun shone through the window, and you studied for final exams because summer vacation was right around the corner? That excitement is exactly what you should feel for June, a novel written by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore.
June is a well-written novel that revolves around a character aptly named June. The novel alters between two different timelines, in which themes of love, family, friendship, secrets, and honesty are explored in a way that is entertaining, well written, and truthful.
