Book Review: Romancing the Dark in the City of Light By Ann Jacobus

"Romancing the Dark in the City of Light" is an intense book. Summer's life is a mess. She has been kicked out of boarding schools and she really doesn't care about finishing school. Summer's father is dead and her mom is always traveling, so Summer is pretty much on her own. All Summer truly cares about is finding the right guy. She feels that if she were to find the right guy then that would solve all of her issues. When I say this book is intense, I truly mean it. "Romancing the Dark in the City of Light" covers depression, self-worth, alcoholism, and negative thoughts. Summer is very much influenced by people around her.

I really felt bad for Summer because it seemed like her mother just didn't bother trying to be around for her. Summer ends up having to battle all of her issues on her own. I think it would have been better for her if her mother bothered to be around. Summer needed her mom and she wasn't there. One couldn't help but feel for Summer. I always love it when a character can overcome their problems in a book. If you don't mind reading a depressing but really good story, this is a great book to read.
