I have a question to rewrite the sentence:

My mother bought an interesting book last summer

-> The book which my mother gave me last summer is interesting (1)

-> The book which my mother gave me last summer was interesting (2)

Which one is correct? Can you explain why you choose that answer? Thank you

They both are.
The difference is in how the writer (the "me") currently experiences that gift:

  1. The book which my mother gave me last summer is interesting

This means that the book is currently (that is, at the moment of writing) interesting to the writer.

  1. The book which my mother gave me last summer was interesting

This means the writer lost their interest in the book, or that the book's contents are no longer relevant.
