Goodreads Synopsis

Summerlost'It's the first real summer since the devastating accident that killed Cedar's father and younger brother, Ben. But now Cedar and what’s left of her family are returning to the town of Iron Creek for the summer. They’re just settling into their new house when a boy named Leo, dressed in costume, rides by on his bike. Intrigued, Cedar follows him to the renowned Summerlost theatre festival. Soon, she not only has a new friend in Leo and a job working concessions at the festival, she finds herself surrounded by mystery. The mystery of the tragic, too-short life of the Hollywood actress who haunts the halls of Summerlost. And the mystery of the strange gifts that keep appearing for Cedar. 

Infused with emotion and rich with understanding, Summerlost is the touching middle grade debut from Ally Condie, the international bestselling author of the Matched series, that highlights the strength of family and personal resilience in the face of tragedy'

This book sounds like one of those cliché contemporaries that I love to read while sitting in the garden on a hot summer day. Because the synopsis sounds so cliché I am not overly enthousiastic about it, but I think it'll be a very enjoyable summer read.
Oh, and I love the cover! The typography is amazing!

What are you waiting for this wednesday?
