"As his final year of high school crawls to an end, Jacob receives a postcard with a picture of Tokyo's skyline on the front. On its flipside are two simple words: "I'm sorry." Although it's unsigned, Jacob immediately knows who sent it. There's no doubt it's from his best friend, Ichiro, who abruptly moved to Japan with his mother before they started high school. Jacob couldn't blame them for packing up and moving. He wished he could've done the same. The summer vacation before high school should have been filled with fun and relaxation, but instead it was plagued by tragedy. What follows is Jacob's account of that terrifying summer."--

Summer's End was a thrilling book, complete with drama, a little bit of horror and a bunch of suspense! This book kept me on the edge of my seat, and it will do the same to others as well! Joel Sutherland has created a story that has equal parts of suspense, the paranormal, and adrenaline rush in Summers End! The storyline takes you into an amazing and frightening adventure. A huge plot end near the end will have you second-guessing the predictions you made in the beginning! When I began Summer's End I wasn't expecting much more than a slightly spooky haunted house story but my expectations were blown to smithereens by Sutherland's fast-paced and gripping story. At several points throughout I was eagerly curious and genuinely scared - so much so that goose-bumps covered my flesh and I turned so as to be facing my bedroom doorway, so my imagination doesn't go wild with fright! When I have finished the book, I felt anxious and scared every time I went downstairs to do something. Joel Sutherland did such a great job on this frighteningly awesome book! -@EMBookWorm14 of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library
