  • Family drama.What is it about family drama that speaks to us all so deeply I know why it effects me As an only child, peace and quiet was the norm for my household I craved the hug of an older sister or the pranks of a younger brother Craved anything Any new and exciting family dynamic.So I wonder is drama essential in a large family Is it inevitable I have recently been privy to some of the drama of my Dad s large yet scattered family While I yearn to know what it is like to feel the comradery [...]


  • Hannah Moskowtiz debut novel Break is still one of my most unforgettable reads, so I couldn t wait to see what her next book would bring Just like I expected, Moskowitz doesn t hold back the punches Invincible Summer is bizarre and real and an absolutely enthralling read I don t even know even know where to start I don t even know how to describe this book.This book is about a family and running away and standing still, and Camus and sex and sisters and brothers and growing up and the fear the o [...]


  • Actual Rating 4.5 stars I turn around now, and see them laughing, but unlike Beethoven, I could already hear them I always knew they were there Behind me Even this whole year, when I didn t see them, I always knew they were there.The lack of surprise doesn t make it any less awesome Because I get a different revelation now, better than Beethoven s I m in love.with my stupid, fallen apart family.Chase Everboy McGill lives for the summers he spends with his family in their summer home by the beach [...]


  • Reread on 2 11 13 It didn t hold the same charm on my second time around Possibly because I hated the way Noah and Chase treated Melinda, and desperately wished for her to become a fully realized character Ah well, there s only so much you can do with 50,000 words, and Moskowitz s writing is so non minimalistic and navel gazey, I don t think I would ve stood this out for 70,000k It s rather odd, I like Looking for Alaska every time I read it, though I dislike The Perks of Being a Wallflower eve [...]


  • Invincible Summer takes place over the course of several summers, during which the McGill family, not very put together in the first place, completely falls apart, only to reassemble itself entirely out of order, like a tile mosaic made out of pieces that don t quite fit together, in colors that don t quite match When you think about it, the same happens to most families sooner or later, and therein lies the true strength of this book.Invincible Summer is a quiet little book, a great example of [...]


  • NOTE Please do not hit the spoilers if you haven t read the book It will completely ruin the ending for you Summer It s the season of innocence, fun, laughter, all the things it means to live For Chase McGill, summer is his constant in his ever changing life When everything is falling apart, he feels he can always count on summer to be there Taking place over four summers at his family s beach house, Chase finds that even his summers can not go untouched by change It is during those summers that [...]


  • In short I kind of liked the hero, but the family, especially the parents so many kids but almost zero interest in them, plus Dad hates Noah , the eldest , was so very weird and displayed strange dynamics In addition the sad undercurrent carried the later crashing tragedy with it almost from the beginning like a slowly built up tsunami which caused me flipping the pages with very little enjoyment I am a hope or spark of hope focused kind of reader I need a healthy dose of it even in the darkest [...]


  • This book had some problemsme issues that I think were pretty problematic but at the same time holy gosh did this hit me in so many feels This is a story about family, and finding yourself, and that safe place that you come home to even if it s not really your home that nothing bad can touchuntil it does I have a place like that and I understand that feeling even if it s not on a beach like this one And I understand large families with less than perfect relationships and this book covered those [...]


  • Incivible Summer is completely different from what I expected When I look at the cover I think summertime fun, romance, a story told from a girl s perspective But I couldn t be wrong Incivible Summer is a powerful and HEARTBREAKING story about family that really got to me It is told from Chase s point of view, the second eldest in a family of five children, over the period of four summers set at their beach house Chase is an outstanding character He is so well fleshed out A character that you r [...]


  • This book is sharp, beautiful and almost painful in places It is the perfect beach read, not that it is light and fluffy it isn t , but it gels perfectly with the feeling of being on the beach in summer.I m not quite sure how to approach this review without it devolving into a squee marathon, so let s separate off elements of this book and talk about them, okay The setting was one of my favourite things about this novel Take it from someone who lives on the coast H Moskowitz has got it I could t [...]


  • I am SO torn over this one Was it good YES Hell yes it was But maybe just not my type of book That said, you should TOTALLY give it a try Because it s heartbreaking and powerful and for the most part so very realistic, and Moskowitz is an awwwwwwesome writer as well as an awesome person, at least from what I can tell through her blog , and the whole sign language stuff incorporated into the book was seriously a treat to read.The only complaint I had was the enormous amounts of Camus poetry quoti [...]


  • I ve read some awesome contemporary book so far And Yes, Invincible Summer is one of them I love everything about the book I love Noah, Chase, Shannon, Bella, Claudia and even little Gideon This book is good at breaking peoples heart And that goes also to its writer Hannah Moskowitz and now She s on my list of favorite authors.The book is about family.LoseGrowing upRunning awayAnd CamusTheir family is not a perfect family but that s what makes this book so easy to love and interesting I love how [...]


  • 3 07 AMI just finished it My eyes are all puffy My nose is stuffed up Invincible Summer is a must read.We witness Chase McGill grow up He doesn t want to at first And it seems, this is precisely his attraction for some We read as he stands by while his baby sister grows even if she does so, a little too quickly We read as he watches Noah, whom he idolizes continuously, run away We witness his their screwed up connection to their summer neighbors We watch as his family falls apart then sort of co [...]


  • This book is okay if you want 4 identical cheesy stories of summertime romance Some people will love it undoubtedly but I got bored fairly quick.


  • I finished Invincible Summer a few days ago but have been sort of at a loss to explain how I feel about it while still remaining fair to the novel itself This book is a look at several summers in the life of two families who come to the beach every summer for a month or so at a time It s told in a hazy, lazy sort of summery way from the point of view of one of the boys in a chaotic family Everyone is slightly pretentious and quotes Camus a lot As a little bit of backstory, I was diagnosed with a [...]


  • I m going to have to agree with the statement, Not your typical beach read In fact I wouldn t use the words beach read to describe this book at all This isn t a fluffy mindless entertainment while you soak up the rays at the beach This is a gritty and raw story of a dysfunctional family.Hannah Moskowitz is a very talented writer, I enjoy her minimalistic style And after reading and loving her debut novel Break, I was very excited to read her sopho novel, Invincible Summer Unfortunately the story [...]


  • Invincible Summer not your typical beach read, indeed With its unfitting cover and delicate insides, this is a book to be taken seriously, and even if I have some very large issues with what lies at its core, do not mistake my ranting for dislike of the novel This so very could have been one of my favourites Everything I love about books great main characters, family dynamics, friendships and relationships was incorporated, tied up with the nice bow of stunning lyrical, minimalistic prose This b [...]


  • Initial Thoughts after Reading I don t even know to say about this book For one, it was amazing and full of raw feelings It made me angry, sad, and happy among other things I am not even sure how I exactly feel about it all However, I do know one thing Hannah Moskowitz is one heck of an author.Official Review I have been hearing amazing things about Hannah Moskowitz and her books since her first book was released in 09, and while I even have that said book in my TBR pile, I had not read anything [...]


  • I was expecting a type of beach read no matter what the description says I was ok with emotional and maybe even a coming of age story Because let s face it, summer can be that type of season But, not matter how hard I tried I just couldn t get past some aspects of this novel.I was ok with the time frame 4 summer seasons and a lot can happen But in all reality, it s the last summer that anything really monumental happens Ok, maybe the very end of the 3rd as wellbut it s the defying moment, the st [...]


  • Mind blowing Will write review when I can think again Cross posted on A Gypsy Writer Oh My God This book broke my brain I recommend it to anybody who loves a good family story So that blurb up there Totally wrong I m not kidding sure, there are some romantic interests in here, but it s family orientated.And it s told from a guy s POV The cover thinks fun, summer romance Well, it made me think that It s not it s a my family is dysfunctional and I need to keep them together while we go on vacation [...]


  • Primary language spoken at home Noah makes a face What does this mean Our primary language Gideon s That s sort of why we re here Um, it s under family, so I m guessing ours Well Noah lowers his pen The paperwork has defeated him What s our primary language English ASL Physical affection Food Noah says Food s a good guess He picks up the pen I m writing food, comma passive aggressive Good call This was my first Hannah Moskowitz book, and it definitely won t be the last And don t judge this by th [...]


  • SPOILERS AHEAD 1 Shit damn These parents pissed me off Did you just have 5 kids so they could all watch each other and you two sit on your butt God, I hate babies raising babies and that is the impression I got from this book 2 Poor Chase This guy can just not win Between his brother constantly running off, his parents getting divorced, Melinda basically forcing him to have sex with her, his baby brother dying in the ocean and being the string that holds his family together, I don t know how he [...]


  • When I heard the words beach read, I tend to think of a light hearted book that will make me smile without making me think deeply Moskowitz s sopho novel Invincible Summer is a beach read in terms of its oceanside setting, but is also a novel that leaves readers with a lot to think about This is the story of a family that is trying to say together as they grow older While I didn t connect with the plot one hundred percent, I found this to be a beautifully done work which nicely showcases Moskowi [...]


  • I read this book a while ago and it s still stayed with me There was so much depth to this book in the way the family members related to each other the unofficial battle lines drawn, the way people are supposed to take care of each other, the prodigal son adored when he s around.There s so much to love about this bookwhen you read it, it feels like you re sitting on a beach in Maryland The beach is as much of a character as any of the people, and it works Everything about it seemed real, and com [...]


  • Oh my god.I feel like I ve been punched and punched and punched until there s no way for me to even think about breathing,Disclaimer I know Hannah in tronspace, and I have read a few paragraphs, lines and snippets of this book And I thought it sounded good, but then I am a little in awe of Hannah s talent, to put it mildly.But I was not expecting this.This book is awful Awe ful Brilliant Horrible and ugly and fucked up and delicious and beautiful and painfully honest.I hate writing reviews, so t [...]



  • The Short Version A great blend of light and hard emotion, with an unflinching realism and raw voice, Invincible Summer does a remarkable job of chronicling the life of one teenage boy across four summers The transitions between the summers are smooth and clear, and the overall development in not only Chase but all the characters is astounding in scope and handled fantastically The writing is easy and gives a strong voice to Chase, and the playout of the plot has so many twists and is filled wit [...]


  • Oh holy crap Like, really This is a fantastic book For anyone To quote the book itself, I love it love it love it Cover I m going to admit, I played the Which end is which game the first time I saw it Once my mind was able to put it together, I haven t had any trouble with it In fact, when I tried to see it the other way, it took a lot of work to see how I got it wrong again About halfway through I was questioning the choice of gender being that our narrator is a teenage boy, but by the end of t [...]
