I'm a big, big fan of historical fiction, and I've read hundreds of books set in the early twentieth century and the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Lately I've been digging recent YA books that delve into historical settings that are a little closer to now. Like Eleanor & Park (1980's), for instance, or even The Miseducation of Cameron Post (early 1990's). Three Day Summer by Sarvnaz Tash goes to the 1960's and Woodstock, and it's out next Tuesday!
About Three Day Summer:
"Boy meets girl...at the most amazing concert the world has ever seen.
Michael is unsure about most things. Go to college? Enlist in the military? Break up with his girlfriend? All big question marks. He is living for the moment and all he wants is a few days at the biggest concert of the summer.
Cora lives in the town hosting the music festival. She's volunteering in the medical tent. She's like that, always the good girl. But there is something in the air at this concert and suddenly Cora finds herself wanting to push her own boundaries.
When Michael and Cora meet, sparks fly, hearts race, and all the things songs are written about come true. And all the while, three days of the most epic summer await them..."Check out this awesome playlist that Sarvenaz put together!
