Nola wants nothing more than a summer on her own--and a job at an upscale Maine coast resort sounds ideal. Waitressing three meals a day, but lots of beach time in between, some freedom from her big-sister role to Song, who is undergoing chemo back home in Massachusetts, the chance to make some friends. Enter Carly, the perfect pal, full of jokes, ideas, energy—and experienced at being away from her mysterious family. But Carly is much more complicated than the usual summer buddy—a border-line personality who can turn on Nola in a flash, who can make “love” a rivalry, something that, even at a distance, Song becomes ensnared in. Here is a dramatic look at a girl/girl teen dynamic. To say nothing of boys..


My Review:
From page one I was sucked in to a story that had me dying to know what would happen next. Jennifer Richard Jacobson wrote a captivating page-turner that had me on the edge of my seat to find out what could possibly make Nola use such a strong word, such as hate, to describe her relationship with another person.

Nola isn't your average teenager. Her sister has a brain tumor and is the center of her parents' attention. Nola is on the back-burner and spends all her time focusing on her sisters needs. All she wants is one summer to herself. One summer to be herself. 

I really enjoyed The Complete History of Why I Hate Her. It was a light summer read that was well written, descriptive, and kept my attention. Nola is such a selfless person who needed a break to just be herself and escape her reality. Her friendship with Carly started on the bus to Maine and grew to become a great friendship, but ended in flames. Every page added fuel to a fire that would ignite in a matter of time. 

I highly recommend this book if you want a light, quick, and easy summer read that will leave you lost in the story without an idea of how much time has past. Awesome read!
