"The Summer Before I Met You"

"The Summer Before I Met You"
by Sarah Rees Brennan

(This was another "prequel short story" for Unspoken.)

It's a repeat of the verdict on the other short story-- just alright.  If I'd read these stories before the novel, I'm not sure I would've been that enthusiastic about picking up the book, honestly.  It's not that they were bad... but they lack any significant interaction between Kami and Jared, and the fact that they're told from an "outsider's" point of view doesn't increase my interest, either. 

Well, it won't be long until the second book in the trilogy is out.  I have higher hopes for that.
