What Dies in Summer by Tom Wright Review

What Dies in Summer

By Tom Wright


Jim Beaudry is a teenage boy whose dreams are haunted by a young woman, a dead young woman. One day Jim and his cousin L.A. stumble upon the dead body of the girl that has been haunting Jim’s dreams she had been brutally raped and murdered. Over the course of one summer these teenagers who have been through so much in their short lives find out that there is more hell that they must eventually endure.


Tom Wright creates two characters whose lives are so troubled that you cannot help but feel for them and hope that they will be able to pull through this new situation and hopefully find a better life in the end. But this is not all, the author creates a world you can envision easily, his scenes are flawless in there execution pulling you into the moment and even though there is a touch of supernatural it is subtle making it all the more believable. I am not sure who I would recommend this book to, it is a brilliant blend of horror and mystery with touches of romance and young adult, and you will either love it or hate it. As for me I enjoyed it immensely.

  1. I think I would really like this book. I always read Alice Hoffman when I need a touch of supernatural because she always weaves into the story so that it is so unbelievable. I just love a little magical realism in my stores – I’ll have to try this out. Plus, the cover is dreamy.

  2. Its a good post, but I don’t see a recommendation, rating etc. Think about adding a little more detail. 🙂
