Big Summer was a very surprising and gripping read!
It started out as what seemed to be a typical Chick Lit, beachy read. But things were NOT what they seemed and it quickly turned into a murder mystery!
It was comprised of likable and diverse characters and weaved together some of the following:

- Stereotypical high school mean girls

- Body positivity at any size

- Forgiveness

- Family betrayal and long-hidden secrets

- Dangers of social media to mental well-being and happiness
To sum it up, I was just incredibly impressed with a near perfect execution of such diversity in plot, characters, and the issues addressed!
