Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Beach Book Extraordinaire! Donohue’s three protagonists are irresistibly sympathetic as they try to unbury their true selves from the ruinous secrets of their shared past.” Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author of Summerland
All the Summer Girls is a beautifully wrought story about the tender yet resilient bonds of friendship and the damage of kept secrets. Meg Donohue writes with keen insight, prodding readers to re-examine their own past choices, while gracefully examining themes of family, friendship and forgiveness.” Karen White, New York Times bestselling author of Sea Change and On Folly Beach
“An intimate, heartfelt, beautiful exploration of friendship, family and the ties that bind and the secrets that destroy us. Read it first, pass it to your girlfriend later. She’ll be grateful.” Allison Winn Scotch, New York Times bestselling author of The Song Remains the Same and Time of My Life
All the Summer Girls is an honest and engaging look at the complicated and powerful bonds of female friendship. Donohue takes us on a weekend reunion full of secrets, resentment, and regret—in other words, once you start this book, you won’t be able to put it down!” Jennifer Close, New York Times bestselling author of Girls in White Dresses
“Meg Donohue paints a compassionate portrait of what it means to be adrift — in love, and in one’s own sense of self — with engaging heroines both flawed and utterly real.” Nichole Bernier, author of The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D.
 “Donohue sounds an irresistible call to spread a blanket on the nearest beach with three best friends who reunite on the Jersey Shore to commiserate, imbibe, and confess the dark secrets that have haunted them since college. Donohue gives the chick-lit buddy trope an appealing twist and a lot of depth, turning a familiar yarn of regret, trust, and loyalty into an elegant ode to late bloomers.” Publishers Weekly
“This novel is a sensitive, vibrant, and touching portrayal of childhood friends…Donohue beautifully captures how the shimmering promise of youth and the sobering realities of maturity must coalesce to create a fully realized, hopeful woman.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

Truly one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to.

I was captivated by this book in the first five minutes all the way through the end. I could not break away from it and ended up cleaning the house with my headphones on!
