I've had many favorite books through time, and after a while, I pick them up again and they are no longer my favorites. The View From The Top has been on my Favorite Book List for a while and for some reason I felt like picking it up again in this past Read-a-Thon and I discovered that I loved it just as much as I did the first time I read it <3
The View From The Top is told by 6 different points of view, all teenagers with different perspectives on an equal summer. What surprises me more about The View From The Top is how easy it is to read - and also to relate - but the first time I read it I was done later in the same day, I just picked it up and sat on my bed, next thing I know I'm finished and in Love. I was done in 4 hours in the Read-a-Thon.
Many will be able to relate with each one of the characters, like when you promise yourself that you will change your whole life this summer and then fail miserably, or looking ahead and hoping for that moment so that it will take you through the present, and how we can all agree that things are always different once we see them from above.
A gorgeous novel, just sit back, and enjoy the View ;)
