Kurzbeschreibung

4. Mai 1999
In the summer of 1977, Victoria Leonard's world changed forever—when Caitlin Somers chose her as a friend. Dazzling, reckless Caitlin welcomed Vix into the heart of her sprawling, eccentric family, opening doors to a world of unimaginable privilege, sweeping her away to vacations on Martha's Vineyard, a magical, wind-blown island where two friends became summer sisters. . . .

Now, years later, Vix is working in New York City. Caitlin is getting married on the Vineyard. And the early magic of their long, complicated friendship has faded. But Caitlin has begged Vix to come to her wedding, to be her maid of honor. And Vix knows that she will go—for the friend whose casual betrayals she remembers all too well. Because Vix wants to understand what happened during that last shattering summer. And, after all these years, she needs to know why her best friend—her summer sister—still has the power to break her heart....

Amazon.de

Dieser Titel ist in englischer Sprache.
Judy Blume gewann erstmals ganze Legionen von Fans mit Jugendklassikern wie Are You There God? It´s Me, Margaret und Forever, in dem sie sich mit dem kulturell brenzligen Thema der Sexualität im Teenageralter befaßt. In ihrem dritten Roman für Erwachsene, Summer Sisters, erforscht die Autorin erneut die Verzweigungen der Liebe -- und der Lust -- anhand zweier Freundinnen. Zu Beginn sind es die Unterschiede zwischen Caitlin Somers und Victoria Leonard (oder Vix, wie Caitlin sie nennt) gerade das, was sie zueinander bringt: Die privilegierte Caitlin ist wild und freimütig, von großer Schönheit, aber emotional labil; Vix kommt aus bescheidenen Verhältnissen, ist schüchtern, reserviert und unansehnlich im Vergleich. Als Vix von Caitlin auserwählt wird, um auf dem Wohnsitz ihres Vaters auf der Insel Martha´s Vineyard mit ihr den Sommer zu verbringen, werden sie zu unzertrennlichen "Sommerschwestern".

Auf der Insel finden Vix und Caitlin zuerst die Liebe, dann Sex -- und den in rauhen Mengen. Doch die Autorin entfernt sich bald von dem heißen Vergnügen unter der sommerlichen Sonne und verfolgt die Spuren der romantischen und familiären Widrigkeiten, die die beiden zwischen Kindheit und Erwachsenenalter erleben. Die emotional stabile Vix verwandelt sich in Victoria, eine vernünftige Harvard-Absolventin, die später zur erfolgreichen PR-Managerin in Manhattan wird. Die unberechenbare Caitlin entscheidet sich gegen ein Studium und zieht es vor, nach Europa zu fahren, wo sie eine Reihe von kurzlebigen Affären mit spannenden und faszinierenden Fremden auslebt. Erst nach ihrer Rückkehr auf die Insel tut Caitlin das Unvorstellbare und verändert somit ihre Freundschaft zu Vix und ihrer beider Leben. Judy Blume gibt wieder einmal einen Beweis ihrer meisterhaften Kenntnis der weiblichen Psyche, Summer Sisters wird also sicherlich nicht nur ihre jungen, sondern auch ihre etwas reiferen Leser begeistern. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Pressestimmen

“Compulsively readable ... her powers are prodigious.” —New York Times Book Review

“As warm as a summer breeze blowing through your hair, as nostalgic as James Taylor singing ‘How Sweet It Is.’ You remember. So does Judy Blume. How sweet it was.”—Chicago Tribune

“An exceptionally moving story that can leave the reader laughing and crying ... sometimes at the same time.... Blume creates a rich tapestry of characters.”—Denver Post

5.0 von 5 Sternen Summer Sisters 9. Juni 2000
Von Kelly
Format:Taschenbuch
The writing style of Judy Blume allows the in-depth analysis of every character introduced in Summer Sisters. Because the book is mainly in the point of view of the main character, Vix, it is more intriguing not only to learn about her feelings, but also of those around her. I could vividly see every character in detail. Blume exactly depicts the pros and cons of being in a friendship or relationship with all the good times and all the bad. She has the power to captivate her audience because she is so real and is able to portray her characters as if it were reality. This is very important to me in selling the book to the reader. Friendship, the most evident theme of this book, shows the types of friendships every person encounters in their lives. Usually I prefer suspense and mystery books because they have the power to grab my interest to the point of having to turn the next page before putting it down. But this book, a tale of friendship, love, and loss, also has the power to allow the reader to take an active role in the emotions and actions of the characters. The constant heartbreaks Vix encounters has the power to break your heart, triggering aspects of your life that somehow tie in with the book. This book correctly demostrates the definition of friendship, but also shows how to cope when your best friend betrys you or your boyfriend breaks up with you. It is a pleasure to read, but also a learning experience that correlates to life for every person who reads it. This book is especially powerful to teenagers because most have these friendships and have these squirmishes over boys. It has a power over a younger auidience because it relates to life just as you're living it from day tp day. Teens always have that one best friend who always breaks their heart or that one boy they love so much that they would give anything up to be with them. The book is tennage life, and it helps to realize that's how life is for every teen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Perfect Summer Read 7. Juni 2000
Von Candice
Format:Taschenbuch
There is no better time than now to read Judy Blume's third novel for adults, Summer Sisters. This book will take you back to your own childhood summers and will remind you how strong the bond of friendship can be.
The two main characters, Caitlin Somers and Victoria Leonard, stand out for their differences as two young friends in Summer Sisters. Caitlin is outgoing, wild, and outspoken. Victoria (Vix, for short) is reserved and thoughtful, but strong. As they mature, their differences push Caitlin and Vix apart, but their bond as summer sisters is never completely broken.
The two first become summer sisters when Caitlin invites Vix to her summer home on Martha's Vinyard. It is here each summer the two struggle with becoming women, learn about sex, and find out the truth about love. They discover that life does not come one emotion at a time. The novel follows the two women through adolescence into adulthood. After graduating from high school together, Vix goes to Harvard and Caitlin decides she wants to see the world. As the two take different paths, they are slowly pulled apart, drawn together again only by Martha's Vinyard and their vow to stay summer sisters forever.
One of the elements that makes Blume's story such a powerful read is the reality she creates. Her characters and each of the trials and emotions they face are very real. Their experiences with love and loss are believable. You can also see yourself or people you know in Caitlin and Vix. The background characters are well-developed, and they create and enrich the family issues that surround the main characters. One very interesting element Blume uses is that the story is not told only by one narrator. The points of view of many of the characters are revealed.
Summer Sisters is a story that will play with your emotions and leave you wanting to know more. It is for anyone who has known the power of the bond of friendship

2.0 von 5 Sternen Confused? This should help! 11. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
First, let me start off by stating that I am 31 years old, and have read Blume's books since I was 10. I loved her books as a young adult, but I was moderately dissappointed by her latest effort. After reading several of the reviews on this book, I felt compelled to write my own review.
First, for those of you who think this book is for teenagers, it is NOT. I would not want my child under the age of 18 to pick up this book. I think people are confusing the style in which Blume started writing this book. She started writing this book when the characters were in middle school, so she wrote as a middle schooler would think and "got into their minds," so to speak. How boring it would be if she wrote about these girls' escapades from an adult point of view! Notice that as the girls got older, the writing style got a bit older as well.
Second, for those of you who couldn't believe the ending, how could you not see what was coming, in terms of Caitlin's life? I won't give it away, but Caitlin was very disturbed. Notice how we never got into her mind, like we did with seperate chapters for the other characters? She spoke of death and giving up a lot toward the end of the book. She was headed for trouble.
As for my own opinion on the book, it was mediocre at best. I knew what I was getting when I got the book. I knew that it would contain a lot of sex, some really odd situations, and would be written in a breezy, conversational manner. But I was dissappointed, because Blume pulled out a lot of her old, tired situations she has used in many of her other books: you can almost always count on a fallen Catholic as a character, a nice Jew, someone who isn't sure if they belive in God at all, and a monologue about who cares what religion someone is.
