I read The Summer I Learned to Fly after a lady who worked at my local bookstore suggested that I read it. I thank her for her advice, because I loved it!! Drew is such an amazing character. She's not perfect but she is so relatable and lovable. I can relate to her because I am sort of a loner myself and I used to have pet rats too! Emmett is a good supporting character. The Summer That I Learned to Fly is so well written and it is heartwarming. The ending was surprising and not what I was expecting, but it was good! Overall, I really enjoyed this one. It's a great coming of age, YA summer read.
