It's summertime, and thirteen-year-old Nina Ross is feeling kind of lost. Her beloved grandma died last year; her parents work all the time; her brother's busy; and her best friend is into clothes, makeup, and boys. While Nina doesn't know what "her thing" is yet, it's definitely not shopping and makeup. And it's not boys, either. Though . . . has Eli, the boy next door, always been so cute' This summer, Nina decides to change things. She hatches a plan. There are sixty-five days of summer. Every day, she'll anonymously do one small but remarkable good thing for someone in her neighborhood, and find out: does doing good actually make a difference' Along the way, she discovers that her neighborhood, and her family, are full of surprises and secrets. In this bighearted, sweetly romantic novel, things may not turn out exactly as Nina expects. They might be better. From the Hardcover edition.

What a wonderful story. I believe in the power of good, and this author does a great job making her characters come alive. Style to aspire to in my own fiction. Kudos to Ms. Weber for making me fall in love with Nina, Eli and Jorie like I was back in the summer before middle school myself.

An enjoyable read about a teenager who does random acts of kindness in her neighbourhood during her summer holiday.

A feel good kind of read. I liked the image of the unnoticed ordinary things that make a difference. I found it a little simplistic but heartwarming nonetheless. Recommended for tweens and early teens.
