‘The Summer of Broken Rules’ has so much to offer, I hope this review can do it justice. It is brilliantly written with witty banter, clever dialog, a fully fleshed-out whirlwind new romance, and so much more. Author K. L. Walther creates the perfect storm in which Meredith and Wit become tangled up in each other’s lives and it’s so easy to root for them as they fall for each other. Walther expertly entwines the detailed threads of young love, self-discovery, large family gatherings, and a wide-spread game of Assassin, with all the best parts of a summer vacation.

I love being inside Meredith’s head – love her narrating through memories of prior summers, the loving moments between sisters including snarky moments, her feelings towards her family, friends, and her crush on Wit. This book is also a wonderful illustration of how loved ones who’ve passed away too soon are “always with us.” There are numerous ways in which Meredith feels her sister Claire’s presence, both on her own and with the help of family and friends pointing it out to her. This is a truly lovely way to share the story of a main character who is still reeling from losing her sister, but is starting to find her way back to joy – with the memory of her sister by her side helping her find happiness, rather than despite her recent loss.

This book handles grief over a loved one spectacularly well without taking anything away from the light-hearted, comedic, or romantic aspects of this book. Meredith’s older sister, Claire, had passed away approximately a year and a half before this story begins, and so while we don’t see Meredith and her family process fresh, brand-new grief, we do follow how they’re doing after some aspects of life have gone “back to normal.” Grief does not go away overnight, and this book handles that beautifully.

Claire is in Meredith’s every memory of the island they’ve spent all their summer vacations on. Claire is in her thoughts in every chapter of this book, and is discussed between characters many times throughout. Meredith discovers that Claire is, indeed, still with her in most things she does on the island.

Claire was the reigning champion of the family’s massive summer game of Assassin played each year. This year’s game is dedicated to Claire and will be played to honor her memory during a busy week of festivities leading up to a cousin’s wedding. By strategizing and taking a more active role than usual, Meredith finds greater enjoyment in the game and feels closer to her sister.

‘The Summer of Broken Rules’ brought back wonderful memories of summer moments, and can do the same for you! We follow Meredith through many scenes on hikes, at the beach, a pond, a nearby town, driving over sand in Jeep-type vehicles – there’s a scene for every reader to connect with and fondly remember our own joys under the sun. While the scenery is a wonderful jog down memory lane, the fully fleshed-out characters and plotline are even more amazing. The attention paid to the little details, such as side characters with their own goals and relationships, help bring the summer atmosphere to life.

The Summer of Broken Rules is like listening to a variety of Taylor Swift songs. If you’re looking for an emotional summer read, I highly recommend this book!

Meredith is dealing with the grief of losing her sister two years ago. When she and her family reunite with others during a summer wedding, Meredith meets Wit. Wit is the groom’s stepbrother and a stranger she by accidentally punched in the face when racing off the ferry traveling to the wedding site.

The bride and groom set up a game for all the guests to play: Assassin. You have to “kill” your assigned target with a water gun and who ever is last standing wins. Meredith and Wit make a pact to help one another and each day their bond continues to grow into something more… The Summer of Broken Rules is a heartfelt summer romance with a fun premise. I very much enjoyed K. L. Walther’s writing style and how it reminded me of many great summer stories. The sweet and tender moments between Meredith and her family feel like the warmest hug. The banter and development between her and Wit are adventurous and affectionate.

I definitely recommend if you like Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, Morgan Matson, Emma Lord and debut author Kristin Dwyer’s book Some Mistakes Were Made, you will love The Summer of Broken Rules.

Meredith Fox has a big family. Not only are they exceptionally close, but they have the best ways of having summer fun, spending excitement-filled days at Martha’s Vineyard, playing their annual game of Assassin. But this summer is different: one, it’s her cousin’s wedding, and the first summer they’ve spent at Martha’s Vineyard without Meredith’s beloved sister Claire. Meredith misses her more than words, still struggling with the void that her loss has left in her life. And to make matters even worse, a fortnight before leaving for the wedding, her boyfriend of the longest time dumps her, thus making her go alone.

But Meredith has her family, and Assassin. It’s the best game ever, and invokes likeminded reminders of playing similar games with my friends in the summertime. This summer, it takes place during the lead-up to the wedding, and Meredith vows to win for Claire. But when she meets Wit, everything changes. He’s this magnetic force that absorbs all her attention. They form a sort-of alliance to help one another with the game, but the more time she spends with him, the faster she’s falling under his spell. To make matters worse, when he becomes her target, she’s conflicted on telling him the truth or keeping their holiday romance going. But summer has to end soon, and Wit is leaving, and so is she. But after channelling courage from her much-loved and missed sister, Meredith makes a decision for her own happiness that changes the course of her carefully thought plans.

Overall, The Summer of Broken Rules waltzed into my life, and like in Assassin, shot me straight in the heart, putting me under it’s spell. I found myself wanting to live inside the pages, totally enamoured by Meredith’s family, the romance (THE ROMANCE!!) and everything that it kept delivering. Reading this as my last book of the summer is such a serotonin boost. I think I’ve found one of my newfound favourite YA books. If you’re looking for a family-oriented, Pinterest-wedding, YA Romance with all the feels for an end of summer read, you’ve come to the right place. I could gush about this book for hours, and will at any given time, just ask my friends. Five stars completely!
