The character that changed the most was the main character. She realized change isn't a bad thing and she saw a different side of her sister. The cause of the change was her deciding to leave and what she did and saw when she was gone.

A minor character that had a major importance was Sumner, because he brought memories that changed everything.

Evaluate the Ending of the Book The ending was effective because, you get a big shock right before it ends that stays with you.


The relation to Bride Wars

A movie this reminds me of is Bride Wars because in it everyone thinks the weddings will be perfect but they turn bad. In That Summer everyone thinks that Ashley's (Haven's sister) wedding will be perfect but it almost turns bad too.
