Second Chance Summer
By Morgan Matson
Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing, 480 pages
Expected publication: 8th May, 2012
Taylor’s family might not be the closest-knit – everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled – but for the most part, they get along fine. Then they get news that changes everything: Her father has pancreatic cancer, and it’s stage four – meaning that there is basically nothing to be done. Her parents decide that the family will spend his last months together at their old summerhouse in the Pocono Mountains.
Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven’t actually gone anywhere. Her former summer best friend is suddenly around, as is her first boyfriend. . . and he’s much cuter at seventeen than he was at twelve.
As the summer progresses, the Edwards become more of a family, and closer than they’ve ever been before. But all of them very aware that they’re battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance – with family, with friends, and with love.

I swear if this is as good as Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, I'll just... am so happy! Lol. But seriously. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour just place her at the top of my must-read author list. Though I hope she'll give me more satisfactions in the ending then it did in Amy & Roger's Epic Detour. But this book sounds like the broken girl that'll be fixed by a guy and I want to READ it! Just because I love Morgan Matson's book. And I could also stay away for a while from the cutesy contemporary read :)
