The Summer I Saved the 65 Days by Michele Weber Hurwitz

Nina is going into the summer following her freshman year of high school. She is struggling and missing her grandmother. Her parents are both lawyers and intently focused on their careers and law practice. Her brother has become distant and troublesome and her best friend sometimes acts like someone she no longer knows.

To change things, Nina decides to use her summer doing one good deed for each day of the summer. Following her grandmother's advice about the importance of simple things, Nina sets out to better her community, but also comes to understand the positive impact it has on her own life along the way.

The Summer I Saved the 65 Days is a quick read for those who like realistic fiction. The book contains a wide range of interesting characters, a little romance, and a great message about how one person can make a difference. It has been nominated for the 2016-2017 Young Adult Golden Sower Award.
