A Season for Fireflies by Rebecca Maizel

A story of second chances from the author of Between Us and the Moon, which Kirkus Reviews called “what first love is meant to be.”

A year ago, Penny Berne was the star of her high school’s theater department, surrounded by a group of misfit friends and falling in love for the first time. Now her old friends won’t talk to her, her new best friend is the most popular girl in school, and her first love, Wes, ignores her. Penny is revered and hated. Then, in a flash, a near-fatal lightning strike leaves Penny with no memory of the past year—or how she went from drama nerd to queen bee. 

As a record number of fireflies light up her town and her life, Penny realizes she may be able to make things right again—and that even if she can’t change the past, she can learn to see the magic where she never could before.

This captivating new novel about first love, second chances, and the power of memory is perfect for fans of Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall and Katie Cotugno’s How to Love. 

I was in the mood for something cute and since the synopsis was intriguing, I thought: Why not?
It was not my cup of tea even if the story was well written and enjoyable.

Sure, talking about living wth alcoolic parents was a great and interesting addition but I was not touched by the characters or embarked into the author's world. Something was missing.

But since I've read a lot of good critics, maybe it was just for me.

I received this book in exchange of a fair and honest review.
