Why does this have to happen when I’ve finally found love? There has to be another ending to our fairy tale. I imagine it’s the old days when eighteen wasn’t too young to take a wife. Ace is standing in an open field, and I’m in the distance riding Billy. I gallop toward her and swoop her up behind me. She wraps her arms around my middle, squeezing until our bodies are spooned together. We ride bareback into the hills to the house of wood, vines, and plaster I built myself. We live off the land, just the two of us, and we’re happy.

But it’s not the old days, and the world has changed. I have no way to provide for her, not yet, and this girl deserves the best. My best.

I have to let her go.

The large black car pulls off, and I watch it drive from view. She’s gone. Ace is gone.

My heart rips in two.

4 out of 5 (very good)

Cherokee Summer tells the story of two eighteen-year-old's who both have challenging family lives, although in different ways. Ace has a dad who is cheating, a mum who is a drunk, and also has to take the major responsibility of looking after her brother. John wants to leave the reservation and go to college whilst still dealing with the rest of his family and his addict mum.

In this story you get to see where each character comes from, with their own trials and tribulations, as well as seeing them grow closer together - mainly through adversity!

There are many characters in here, some of whom play a big role, some of whom don't. There are good characters and bad. What this means is you get rich, well-rounded story with plenty to keep you turning the pages. There is action and adventure, young love, suspense, and even some moments that had me shaking my head in gob-smacked wonder.

Full of drama, this is told from the first perspective from the viewpoints of both Ace and John. If you are on the lookout for an intriguing story then I can definitely recommend this one.
