I absolutely adored The Summer that Melted Everything, having the privilege to read and review it last year.

This is not a YA book. This is not a book to read lightly. It will tear out your soul so you can examine it, piece by piece; it will rip out your heart and show you what’s written there. McDaniel tackles racism, homosexuality, HIV, and hysteria, all in one bildungsroman. It is violent and cruel, shocking and terrible. There’s no happy ending to be found; this is real life. McDaniel writes with exquisite flair.
