Okay, so I've been reading a lot lately and have a lot of reviews to catch up on. The first book I read in this round was this amazing one by Sara Zarr. Sweethearts. It was refreshing to read a contemporary. I haven't read one in a while and it reminded me of why I like them so much. The emotion. And Sara Zarr is an expert at eliciting strong emotion. This book was heartfelt and honest. I adored it.
"As children, Jennifer Harris and Cameron Quick were both social outcasts. They were also one another's only friend. So when Cameron disappears without warning, Jennifer thinks she's lost the only person who will ever understand her. Now in high school, Jennifer has been transformed. Known as Jenna, she's popular, happy, and dating, everything "Jennifer" couldn't be---but she still can't shake the memory of her long-lost friend.
When Cameron suddenly reappears, they are both confronted with memories of their shared past and the drastically different paths their lives have taken."

Always looking for a good read. I'll check it out since the recommendation comes form someone that likes hot showers, books, and sappy rock ballads like me.ReplyDelete
Sounds very interesting. I've seen this one at the book store, I'm thinking I'll go ick it up.ReplyDelete
I love the cover! Thanks for the review, Kasie. :-)ReplyDelete
I've seen this one before and heard good things about it from others. I guess now I'm going to have to add it to my out of control TBR pile. Thanks. Seriously though, I'm always on the lookout for good contemporary stuff.ReplyDelete
You have my same background! It through me for a moment! LOL Great minds think alike!ReplyDelete
Melissa, I thought you meant background, as in *past*, and that threw me for a minute. :) I was like, how does she know my background? lolReplyDelete
