Reviews and Reader Comments for Girls of Summer

  • Reader comment, 7/8/19: “These women in the GoS series are amazing, and not just #BlakeWell, they do Rock and I Totally luv them!! But the cast of this series are amazing! Kate has pulled fiction from non-fiction in such an amazing combination. Jamie and Emma are good for each other, and they’re struggles are making them stronger!! So when is Book 6 coming out??”
  • Reader comment, 7/14/19: “Building off the previous books in the series, Jamie and Emma have never been stronger in their relationship, but are still tested by time, and the past. The book culminates with the 2015 final match against Japan, only we get to relive the exhilaration of that match through Jamie’s and Emma’s eyes. It’s been quite a journey for Blakewell, one that makes me think of words like ‘fate’ and ‘soulmates.’ I can’t help but feel that their story could go on for books yet! What a treat it has been to spend time with these characters, and grow to adore these characters… I know I will be revisiting these books again and again.”
  • Reader comment, 8/10/19: “Seriously, Emma and Jamie = relationship goals! I LOVE these two, especially Emma! This was so great – I felt like I was reliving the 2015 world cup. All the plays, all the players. And it’s so cool to see which characters remind you of which players. I felt as though I had a front-row seat to the wnt and all its ensuing drama. Especially with the women’s team being so front and centre these days, it was the perfect time for this series! I was actually so inspired I sat down and watched all the 2015 world cup matches again, and relating them to the book was so fun! I really hope Kate Christie continues this series – I can’t wait to see where Emma and Jamie end up for 2019 and how Christie writes it!”
