Outer Banks is a page turner! It is a well-crafted tale with twists and turns! I absolutely loved it! The characters are wonderful and unforgettable. If you are looking to be completely enveloped in a saga, this is the book for you!
Absolutely love this book! Read it 20 years ago and realized when I wanted to re-read it that I didn't own a copy. What Anne Rivers Siddons manages to do in these pages is create an atmosphere in which you feel like you are in the story experiencing everything right along with the narrator. It brings to life all the feelings that you experience in college and the strong friendships that you find while you're there.
And, to top it off there's an interesting twist at the end of the story that I wasn't expecting. Well worth the read.
I haven't read much by this author, but I really enjoyed this book. It is about friendship and romance through the eyes of one character. It kept my attention and I read it very quickly. This was a great book to read while lying by the pool.

Anne Rivers Siddons brings on the storm in a book that
swings its reader in one long crazy up of a ride--
from love and passion and everything that's bound with it--
down to the depths of betrayal, hurt and rage.
This book has it all.
