    One thought on “The Summer I Saved the World . . . in 65 Days”

    1. This was an adorable, quick read to kick off anyone's summer list. The back cover says, "One summer. One Girl. One Plan" How fitting! Nina Ross is feeling at loose ends as summer begins, the first without her Grandma, who lived with the family on their cul-de-sac before she died. When she clandestinely plants her neighbor Mrs. Chung's marigolds, Nina's summer plan is hatched, almost without her knowing it. Sixty five days of summer mean 65 good deeds for the wonderful characters that inhabit Nin [...]

    2. This was a light-hearted, fun book about a girl who decides to honor her grandmother by doing one kind thing a day for the people in her neighborhood. It was a sweet, quick read. Perfect for a summer day.

    3. A sweet, realistic book about transitions, friendships and goodness.Popsugar challenge 2017: a book that's been on your TBR list for way too long

    4. A truly lovely contemporary MG. Features a great sense of community. It's also great, in this era of the "princessification" of young girls, to see a female character more interested in what she does than how she looks. Absolutely recommend.

    5. What a wonderful story. I believe in the power of good, and this author does a great job making her characters come fully alive. Ms. Weber uses a comfortable style to aspire to in my own fiction. Kudos to the author for making me fall in love with Nina, Eli and Jorie like I was back in the summer before middle school myself. I have also read her other book, Calli Be Gold and can't wait to see what she comes out with next.

    6. Definitely an adorable read, especially with summer rolling around the corner. With a cute summer romance and dealing with friends, it's the perfect description of the difficulties with transferring into high school. An added plus with crazy neighbor and family struggles, it's a very relatable book. With wanting to do something small, little and good in the neighborhood each day, it ends up ringing everyone together to have an amazing summer. I'm thinking about trying it :)

    7. This was a cute book with a sweet message. A young girl decides to do some good in her neighborhood by doing 65 anonymous good deeds. This stirs up some trouble, some romance, and some fun in the lives of the young Nina as well as her neighbors. The plot was fun, and very light and I would recommend this to a tween.

    8. Do you know that book you read and sure that your life will not be the same after reading it? That kind of book that fills you with hope? A book that even before you finish will indicate for everyone?Perfect, is not it? More than perfect !Nina has lived in the same neighborhood since she was little and grew up with Eli and Jorie, her inseparable friends . or so she thought until the beginning of that summer. Eli has problems with the loose father who always leaves the family. Jorie is more inte [...]

    9. I'm winding down on my 2018-2019 Iowa Children's Choice reading list, and this was a pleasant little surprise. I'd heard nothing about it and am unfamiliar with the author, but it was really enjoyable. It was nice to read a book about a middle schooler doing good deeds just because she can--and watching the ripple effect it has on her neighborhood is lovely. There's some cliche here--a little tween romance, a little friend drama, and a little "finding yourself"--but the story is so sweet.

    10. It's been some time since I've read a middle grade book and this did not disappoint. I fell in love with the main character Nina. Nina has inspired me to remember that tiny acts of kindness can make a world of difference in others lives.

    11. Does doing good make a difference?  This summer, Nina decides to change things. She hatches a plan. There are sixty-five days of summer.

Mrs. Chung can [...]

    12. Nina Ross is a bored thirteen year-old.

That is until Nina sees her neighbor, Mrs. Chung, struggling with her flowers and decides to help out. Without ever letting Mrs. Chung know, Nina plants the flowers and realizes that one act of kindness can change a person’s day. Nina [...]

    13. Nina normally would have been excited for the summer this year is just not the year. Her grandma died last year, her parents are busy with work, and her brother is either at school or at the pool. On top of that her best friend's personality has changed and she is now into BOYS, makeup, and shopping. Nina definitely isn't like Jori, but the more she thinks about maybe she is. This summer Nina decides to put happiness into her neighbors lives. Her plan is to do at least one good thing, anonymousl [...]

    14. Ma chronique complète : bloggalleane/2015/Il faut parfois bien peu de choses pour qu'une chose incroyable se produise. Discrètement, Nina va tenter de faire quelque chose pour les autres. Elle qui était assez passive, va agir et réaliser de petites choses pour les gens qu'elle côtoie. Si j'attendais plus de complexité dans ce roman, une histoire moins simple, j'ai pris un petit plaisir manifeste à la suivre et à découvrir les personnages que l'histoire dévoile. L'ensemble dégage une c [...]

    15. "And what if the solution is just good. Plain, simple, small good things, so unnoticed, so unremarkable that they're remarkable. And what if ordinary people could be heroes?"Nina Ross is an old soul, according to her grandmother. She lives in a cul-de-sac, where she and best friends, Jorie and Eli, have grown up together. As she is heading into her summer break before her freshman year of high school, she is thinking about her life. She misses her grandmother terribly, who passed away nearly a [...]

    16. I read this for a teacher's reader group that I facilitate-I love the premise of this book-it's about how doing little things add up to making a big difference in the world around you. The idea is that you shouldn't wait for someone else to change the world, but you can do it simply by doing thoughtful things. Good deeds don't have to cost money-but instead can be thoughtful gifts of time or the gift of listening. It's a great read for middle schoolers. I felt like some of the characters were st [...]

    17. The problem in this book, The Summer I Saved the World… in 65 Days by Michele Weber Hurwitz, is that Nina, a chill laid- back girl is doing many good deeds for her family and friends. The only thing is that one of her neighbor’s dosen’t know who is leaving presents at neighbors doors, and growing plants in neighbors yard, but all along it was Nina. Mrs. Millman the over protective neighbor is doing a neighborhood meeting every night to see who is doing this. Mrs. Millman thinks it is a gho [...]

    18. I actually borrowed this book like last month from the library but hadn't proper read it until now (, May 15) and I can't believe I finished reading it in 3 days. The Summer I Save the World in 65 Days is just one of the best books I've ever read and I just love everything about it! Nina handles things with so much maturity and is such a kind hearted girl. I loved how she did these 65 things around the neighborhood anonymously and how she took her Grandmothers STs into consideration. My favorite [...]

    19. As I finished reading, I thought how glad I was that I had read it. Hurwitz reminds readers that doing good matters. Kindness matters. People matter. This book is an easy-read story of Nina and her resolution to do 65 kind/helpful things just for no reason and with no recognition. Her efforts impact all the residents of her cul-de-sac and make a difference in her own family's dynamics.Highly recommend.

    20. I absolutely loved this book! I think it is a incredible feel-good story that everyone should read! Nina (Main character) has inspired me to go out and do some good deeds! I think this book has an incredible message that people today should know about. If you are ever in a bad mood, you should read it. It will put you in a nice happy mood. I think everyone should read it and think about the powerful message it brings to your attention. The book made me realize that there is good in the world but [...]

    21. I read this book for my Teachers as Readers book club. It was very cute! A great book for middle school girls. It lacked the violence and sexual innuendos that seem common in teen books today. Very refreshing!

    22. Loved the SIMPLE TRUTHS and how they related to the GOOD DEEDS.A Creative way to be in the service of others. A must read to show kids in how to empower themselves, that they can make a difference in their community. In doing so, they might learn something about themselves.

    23. This book was son my friends shelf when I was staying in her room, so I picked it up and gave it a read. I LOVED it. Such a great reminder that there is so much good in the world if we only look for it. And that we have the potential to bring out good in others.

    24. When I saw the title of this book I wasn't sure what it was about or if I would even like it. Turns out, I liked it a lot! I never expected the ending. It is a truly awesome book.

    25. I am so glad that Nina and Jorie stayed friends and Eli and Nina went to homecoming together. It was a very great ending.

    26. Great book! A little minor language, some talk of booty shorts and boobs, some kissing, but all rather innocent for the age range. Cute story, great characters. I quite liked it!

    27. I LOVED this book! It deserves more than 5 stars. It is real and honest. It is inspiring and hopeful. It changed me. Truly. I recommend this book to everyone!

    28. Very cute, and definitely believable. A great middle-grade novel; not life-changing but a reasonably worthwhile read.
