Blurb Description: Cassidy Emmerich is determined to make this summer—the last before her boyfriend heads off to college—unforgettable. What she doesn’t count on is her boyfriend breaking up with her. Now, instead of being poolside with him, Cass is over a hundred miles away, spending the summer with her estranged father and his family at their bed-and-breakfast at the Jersey Shore and working as the newest counselor at Camp Manatee. 
Bryan Lakewood is sick of nevers. You’ll never walk. You’ll never surf. You’ll never slow dance with your date at prom. One miscalculated step and Bryan’s life changed forever—now he’s paralyzed and needs to use a wheelchair. This is the first summer he’s back at his former position at Camp Manatee and ready to reclaim some of his independence, in spite of those who question if he’s up for the job. 
Cass is expecting two months dealing with heartbreak.Bryan is expecting a summer of tough adjustments.Neither of them is expecting to fall in love.

The Season of You and Me (and that absolutely GORGEOUS cover) is about a girl running away from her boyfriend (because yes, that's pretty much what she did) and a boy in a wheelchair and how they fall in love. It's cute, it's flawed and it's a perfect representation of what life is like.

The only think that makes a contemporary better, for me at least, is that there has to be more than one ongoing storyline - more than just the two people that will inevitably fall in love with each other, and The Season of You and Me had just that! I loved how Cassidy's family was also a major part in the book, I loved her half brother Hunter, but more than that I LOVED that this wasn't an "Oh my stepmother is the worst in the world Cinderella story" but the complete opposite with her stepmother treating her like actual family. ACTUAL FAMILY. *throws points at book*

I did also lobe the whole gang over at Camp Manatee. It made it feel like a very Sarah Dessen-esque book, and I pretty much loved it.

I guess that's it - there's nothing more I can say. Except, you know, go read it!
